The look on the lady's face was priceless. I'm at a thrift store, a kind of nice one, actually, looking for items that we need for The Lonesome West. I'd been looking around for a while, and a clerk came over to me and asked, "Are you looking for anything specific?"
I smiled and answered, "Yeah. A crock pot, a shotgun and a crucifix."
To be honest, I knew I wasn't going to get a shotgun at a thrift store, but it was too, too funny.
I'm easily amused, I guess.
On a completely separate note, I know everyone is completely covered up with contests and exchanges, but I have some story ideas I'd like to bounce off of someone... as well as have them run a beta-eye over them. My primary beta has so much of my stuff that I think it's choking her, and I haven't been able to post anything in a while because she's so busy. It wouldn't be anything long term, like a two year long chaptered fic, just a couple of one, maybe two-shots. Anyone up to being a part-time beta to a properly appreciative author?
Incidentally, I found the crock pot at that thrift store. The lady was all too happy to sell it to me and get me the heck out of her store. I'm pretty sure she thought I was a deranged, sacreligious girl who liked to slow-cook things in her spare time. =D
Perhaps I am! *insert icon sound*
