Re: Tom H. and the knife incident

A lot of people don't/didn't believe me when I finally talked about this. I can, and do, give every single bit of the credit deserved to my ex for getting me to open up. Even though it wasn't with him since I knew if he found out he would kill Tom in cold blood.

Around the time that I inserted my "there were issues with his drinking a knife and myself" into the previous comment, maybe a little before, he got overly drunk, had gone out drinking at the bars to pick up women like he always did. He always got drunk, came home, slept, got up the next morning with a horrible hang over and was a real horrible person to be around for the next 3 days -- if he stayed sober. Which he usually didn't.

He had gotten drunk, came home, slept it off, for an entire day to be exact, and the next day, I had a deer to gut out.

I dont remember who brought it home or why no one else was home. I just remember I had a deer to gut/skin and so when I finished I was covered in guts and blood. Like usual. I stunk... as you can imagine, and threw my knife in the sink to wash later. Which is very odd for me, since I always wash my knife after skinning. I dont have any idea what led me to not wash it that day...

I took a shower and thought I had the house to myself, when in fact I didn't. I usually grab clean clothes so that I go in dirty, come out clean, but I thought I had the house to myself so I didn't this time and just wrapped up in a couple towels. Big mistake.

I wanted a drink of milk so I went to the kitchen, I heard him come stumbling down the stairs and was surprised but ignored him. Second mistake.

He pinned me against the sink, and started... you know. And I was able to get my arm/hand free enough to grab the knife... thank goodness for my laziness... and stabbed him in the arm.

Now that I've had this medical training, I realize just how lucky I was not to hit a main artery. Although on the one hand I'm glad I didn't hit an artery... I suppose I wouldn't have been worried if I had either. *shrug* I hate him. I wish he would go away.

Re: Tom H. and the knife incident

Lucky shot. You got your point across, but you didn't get arrested for manslaughter either.

Of course, it could have been self defense - but the lawyer money to set you free would have put you in the poorhouse. Unless the court appointed you an attorney, which could be just as bad.

But either way - you came out ok.. and that's what matters.

Everything happens for a reson.

Re: Tom H. and the knife incident


He wouldn't have gone to the cops about me. If he had, I'd have turned him in for attempted rape and since he was already on parole for attempted rape... meh

Sounds like a real gentleman. I just love sarcasm! :)

Re: Tom H. and the knife incident

Yeah, I really love sarcasm too. :-)

When I said he was the lowest being on the face of the earth I wasn't kidding. I was completely and totally serious.

Actually, there is only one being which is lower then him, and it isn't much lower since he considered himself to be a devils advocate/someone who would carry out the devils deeds.
