Can You Stab A Boogeyman With A Butterknife?

     0735: Tamara has ostensibly left for work; the basement door has shut and latched, ka-thunk.

     0736: Roberta goes to the kitchen and butters three great big crackers for a light breakfast.  There is a sound from the basement, great brute boots tromping up the stairs: clomp, clomp, clomp...

    0736:20: Roberta is thinking, ohGawdohGawd, I'm gonna have to take on the boogyman with only a butterknife?

     0736:25: Tamara's cheery voice through the basement door: "Later!  First boot-wearing morning since Spring!" Clomp, clomp...  The back door slams.

     Oh, that.  Okay.

Fire extinguisher, stray them in the face and beat with the can. You do have one in the kitchen?

Cast iron pans build a hell of a lot of energy up in a good swing.

Just saying.

A good idea, even if you never took the course!
