So, I got my knife today. It's pretty nice except it's a little tight in the sheath. I accidentally tested the sharpness on my finger. Yep, it's sharp.
So, I went over to the Barnes and Noble in Mesa on Val Vista and US 60 (ironically to buy 1984). I was wearing a nice button down shirt, dress pants, and dress shoes. It was at 5 o'clock, Saturday.
I was wearing it in the sheath of course, on my right side (I'm right-handed) at 3 o'clock. I didn't notice any looks except for a guy in front of me in line who stared at it for about 5 seconds but seemed to be hiding fear or dismay. Then the lady at the counter also stared at it and seemed awfully disturbed--as if I was carrying a gun. She talked in a very soft voice and seemed to be afraid to look me in the eyes. Of course I was very polite.
I kind of expected this. Going into a liberal hang-out like Barnes and Noble with a knife and buying a blasphemous book such as 1984 is gonna draw some attention.
Its all the crack pots we have moving in from CA Illinois and the East Coast. That is about 99% of what is going wrong in good old AZ. Most of my strange looks come when i'm in Sedona. Then again Flag has been over run pretty well by the libs moving in from the areas I said
