So, you can imagine my shock when I rounded the corner to find Brint stark naked. OMW (oh my word) I could not believe he was standing there completely "undressed." Did someone beat me to the goods? I played it cool.....I took a very deep breath and casually inquired about "THE APRON." Apparently Mr. Brint had shoulder surgery a few months ago and it is best that he gives his shoulders a break. So I say, " Hi Brint....oh I'm so sorry to hear about your surgery." The entire time all I could really think was......OH YES!!!! (just like Meg Ryan in When Harry met Sally.....just the exact same feeling :)
By now most of you know Brint, Famore Cutlery, "The Scissor Man" at Quilt Market. You already know that I think his apron is "scissor porn" and I've fantasized about stealing it from the first time I laid eyes on it. I know lust is typically frowned upon in most religions.....but I've not found one yet that said I could not lust after some of the best scissors made that all attached to one apron. If there is one....I'll just change the post to read, "strong desire."
Just after the man walked away, Brint sat down and invited me to chat for a bit. Imagine my incredible luck when he needed to excuse himself for a minute. "No problem Brint....I'll smile and be welcoming to all passersby and I'll let them know you will be right back.....I just need to have that apron for just a minute however....go on and take care of your business....I'll be right here when you get back." See....I'm a good tricker....I learned it from my youngest co-worker!!
So....when you are caught....what do you do? Dance of course....throw them off a a bit.....do a IHAN Ninja move on them......
These are wonderful for machine embroidery....so I tell Brint I need to buy some of these for my Machine Embroidery customers but I need the points to be blunt. "Ok, I'll just machine them for you and make them blunt"....says Brint. You don't get better than that!!! Famore Rocks Planet Earth....but gently because of the hot lava flows...LOL
Famore Cutlery.....excellent scissors.....great prices......THE APRON and a guy who will machine scissors for you.....can't beat that even with a big stick. Oh, yeah did I mention....he is not too hard on the eyes either!!!
Smile for the camera IHAN bloggifers. You've been
As you can tell, I had a great time....both at Market and with writing this story....fiction of course :)
