And WOAH WHERE DID ALL THESE BUTTONS COME FROM!?
So I was at Brickfair and realized, "Woah, BZP still exists, and so do I, so maybe our existences should coincide more often."
Anyways, I have a story! *Ahem.* Once upon a time there was a member named Turakii who got married to a member named Toa Lhikan Hordika and moved to Santiago, Chile (in South America!) (speaking of which, Chileans get very offended if you call yourself an "American" because they technically are too, so you have to basically call yourself a "United Statian") (Actually, that wasn't really on-topic at all, so just ignore all these parentheses and move on).
Now, Turakii's mother (Macku: Toa of Bubbles) was a very wise bubbly Toa, and she always told Turakii, "When you're shopping, you should never leave your purse in the cart, because someone can just walk by and take it and you won't even notice until you reach the checkout line."
And the very first day Turakii was in Chile that definitely did not happen nope not at all.
But if it had happened (which it definitely didn't), then it would have really sucked for the thief. Most people steal stuff hoping to find money or credit cards or diamond belt buckles or gold teeth and other things that people usually keep in purses. This thief, however, was fortunate enough to walk away with:
- A cell phone with no coverage in South America (SO MUCH USEFUL)
- A passport (and they would only need a tiny bit of plastic surgery to make use of it)
- A New York learner's permit (so if they ever happen to visit New York, they'll just have to find a licensed driver over 21 and they'll be able to drive legally! How convenient!)
- A couple of books (in English) (the primary language in Chile is Spanish)
But he/she did get my adorable pink purse with the little dead animals printed all over it. =( I just hope they use it well.
Moral of this story: If you're not going to wear your purse on your arm, fill it with all kinds of useless stuff so you can laugh evilly as you imagine the thief sobbing, "Where's the money? Where are the credit cards? Who the heck brings BOOKS to a GROCERY STORE!?"
