Heheeeeeeeeeeeeee, yes it'll happen some day.

Lemme tell ya a story. This cover reminds me of a Chinese throwing star that I found in my school. I promise the story gets better.

Two years ago, during my freshman year at RIT, my fellow classmates and I were working on a class assignment, and when we discovered this thing, we started pretending to be ninjas and throwing the star into the trees. I was the one to hang onto it because I thought it was really cool. Class ends, I put the star into the smallest pocket in my backpack, one that I never touched. And because I never needed that pocket again for the remainder of the school year, I never touched it again.


My family and I are going on a cruise in late July. I bring the same backpack I had all year. We go through customs at Philly International, I GET THROUGH WITH NO PROBLEMS, and we fly to Florida to our Royal Caribbean cruise ship. We go through the customs there, and they have to stop my bag. They start searching and say, "Ma'am? What's in you bag?"

I say, "A sketchbook, book, and a stuffed animal."

She goes into that little pocket and pulls out the throwing star. I had completely forgotten about this thing, and my dad starts cracking up. "Is that a THROWING STAR?!" and "Where the hell did you get that?!" and "THE FUCK?!" was all I heard from my family/the families I went on the cruise with for that next week.

What boggles my mind is that the Int'l airport customs didn't pick this up, but CRUISE customs did.


Something tells me that Angel Star won't be a quarter as exciting, but may be just as confusing.
