I always worry when my friend Angela is going to pick up something that she found advertised on Craigslist. When I finally went with her on that expedition at the hoarder's, that just confirmed it. Weird character in a shady house in a bad neighborhood. You just never know.
I'm pretty tall at 5'9" and I feel pretty confident that I could take someone out if they tried to attack me.
Unless, of course, it required any kind of upper body strength. Then I'm screwed.
But Angela is very petite. She's not quite get her own reality show short, but she's under 5' tall.
She needed a weapon.
Okay, so maybe not a gun but some sort of self protection.
I jumped on eBay to see what was available.
Brass knuckles - She wouldn't be able to knuckle 'em any higher than their knee. That won't work.
Ninja throwing knife - Too much work. You need to take it OUT of the sheath....it's a whole thing.
Tomahawk knife - I think there might be the no upper body strength issue here.
The intimidating necklace - Mmm....I'm thinkin' no. Did I mention she's 4 feet somethin'? Although, now that I think about it, she does scare me sometimes.
I decided on pepper spray but all the pepper spray looked too much like, well, pepper spray. It just didn't appeal to me so I decided on the pepper spray that looks like lipstick and since they were 2 for 1, I got one for myself.
It looked pretty true to size online until I got it in the mail.
It looks like lipstick for Donatella Versace. Or Janice from the Muppets.
Coming soon - Chrissy accidentally sprays herself in the face.
