Today is Pistol Patent Day. This refers to Samuel Colt's patenting of the revolver, although I don't know why this day is of importance, as it isn't even his birthday. I'm not sure exactly how to celebrate this holiday. I don't want to own a gun, as I don't trust myself with it yet (I'm a naturally curious person and curiosity and guns usually don't mix). I thought that I might want to look into patenting my OWN pistol, but t turns out that that process takes longer than a day sometimes, and I'm sure that the patent office is flooded with pistol ideas on this particular day. All that aside, I'm substituting for a first grade class today, and... well... celebrating guns around children is one of the least smart things a person could do. And despite what northerners may think of the south, it is also frowned upon. So instead, I'll just think of reasons that I'm glad pistols exist. Sounds easy, right? Not for me. I'm more of a sword kinda guy. It just seems more poetic and gentlemanly to duel with foils rather than glocks. I'm so not into guns, I don't even know for sure if that's how you spell "glocks".
Thanks for reading!
