Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Dagger of Desire

Ever since I got my Lord of the Rings movie reproduction sword, I’ve been on the mailing list for the company I bought it from. I look at their stuff every once in a while, because it’s interesting. They sell lots of knives and swords of course, but also survival gear and things to prepare yourself for the collapse of society.

A while ago, they offered a dagger that is part of a line of non-movie-prop weapons. They are actual, sharp and pointy knives and swords – I guess for fighting off zombies. One of the daggers caught my eye. It was pretty. I wanted it.

I didn’t buy it, of course, because what do I need a dagger for? But then it went out of stock. And then I wanted it more. I kept going back to look if it was back in stock, and it wasn’t in stock, and I wanted it more. This has continued for months, and I have wanted it so badly…

Yesterday, it was back in stock. I very nearly bought it. It’s not a lot of money. And it’s so, so pretty. But what would I do with it? I hardly ever meet any zombies.

But if I had it, I could hold it. I bet it would feel so good. Maybe I could just hold it while I watch TV. I bet that would be nice.

    That is a pretty knife. (I’m a fan of knives.) Maybe you could use it for kebabs? shaving? food prep?

    I think it’s your new gardening tool.
