A New Year's Story

While there were no injuries or other damages reported during our New Years festivities, there was one goof-up that occurred that should be shared with everyone.


Equals what?


Yes, somehow, a pair of my handcuffs got locked to a knitted throw that our host owned. And, somehow, I used the wrong key when trying to open the cuff, which somehow trapped the key and wouldn't let it go. And the key somehow broke, so that a part of the key is still in the cuff, which is still attached to the throw.

And yes, the cuffs are pink. Like the picture above. Exactly like the picture above.

So, I get to carry a pink-handcuffed throw to a locksmith sometime soon and see if he can save both the throw AND the cuff.

Somehow, with all the stories the locksmith has heard, I bet they haven't heard this one.

Look at the bright side...at least there wasn't a person stuck in the other cuff!

Thanks for the laugh. I thought this sort of whacky thing only happened in my leather family.

So, is the locksmith going to charge you for airfare from Leicester? It might be cheaper to replace the cuffs and the afghan!

(eisa and Puppy Monster made it home safely. We were delayed by the weather, but the ride was otherwise uneventful Well, except for the alien abduction, but that was wiped from our memories and the aliens have time travel, so they dropped us off back when they picked us up and no one really noticed.)

The story is great, but the pictorial way of telling it is even better.

that's awesome... although i agree with those above that the situation, ahem, could have been much, much worse. can you secretly videotape your locksmith interactions??? regardless please do keep us posted.

You have pink handcuffs and never used them on me?!?!?!? Now I'm miffed.
What kind of lock mechainism is it? I can't tell from the picture. If it's the kind where the silver part of the cuff is serrated, I might be able to help you.
