There is blood in all the things you say, I won't hate you if you go away

Last weekend Tortellini's boyfriend came to town for a visit. It was the first time she got to see him since they moved here last summer, so she was very excited.

Mr M, on the other hand, was not. It seems that he doesn't like to have to interact with anyone he's not familiar with, which is basically everyone outside of my, or my ex's family.

About an hour or so before [Boyfriend] was supposed to get to their house, Mr M held up a toothpick then looked at Tortellini and said, "If [Boyfriend] tries talkin' to me, I'm goin' to poke him to death with this."

Looks like I don't have to be the dad sitting on the couch cleaning his gun* for intimidation purposes. Mr M's got it covered for me.








*Which is a good thing because I'd need to go out and buy a shotgun.

Maybe you just need to get some toothpicks...

Somehow I don't think sitting on the couch cleaning a toothpick is a good intimidation practice. Perhaps he should witness you killing a small animal with one.

Delirious, I'll get Mr M an unlimited supply.

Heff, agreed. I'll go catch a squirrel.

Manuel, he's the one who drew the turkey getting shot with a bow and arrow.

Steph, it is huh. And every review I read talked about how it was the "feel good movie" of the year, but I didn't feel that way about it in the least.

Shotguns are expensive anyway . . . at least I assume so as I've actually never priced one.

But the toothpick thing is pretty damn funny & probably surprisingly effective if wielded properly & with the element of surprise.

Rambows son could kill a sisters boyfriend eleven different ways with a toothpick. --- also Minnow if you read between the lines, Your son is only going to waste the dude with a toothpick if the guy talks to him. Dont see alot of concern regarding his sister though so you may need your own set of toothpicks
