Dismembered Torsos

You have the oddest experiences when you are sufficiently active in the SCA. One of the SCA activities we have is called “live weapons.” These are real bows and arrows, real spears, and real axes thrown at targets. Now – one of the things that gets a little old is throwing this gear at haybales. So occasionally you have a marshal that gets the bright idea to stuff a shirt with wal-mart bags and wrap it in duct tape. This produces a human torso shape that is somewhat more interesting to throw stuff at.

But – you know, an empty trailer is a tempting place to store stuff. And when you need to load your trailer, it’s often easier to just throw your stuff out on the ground and sort it . . . Unless it’s getting dark and your cargo looks like a dismembered human torso. I reached to grab that thing and throw it out into the street . . . and thought better of it. My (mundane) neighbors were out on thier porches, and, I just didn’t feel the need to load test them with the image of a human torso flying out of my trailer and into the street.
