Not Self Defense Advice Fridays: Didn't Axe Nicely
Ax-Wielding Woman Chases Burglar: "I Hit What I Aim For"
The woman awoke to find a man trying to steal her watch right off her arm, then reached for her ax that she keeps near her bed
A burglar was scared off early Saturday morning when a skilled ax-thrower grabbed the weapon she keeps next to her bed after she felt the man trying to remove her watch from her wrist as she was sleeping.
The burglar, who broke in through a window, had already ransacked other rooms before entering the bedroom. The homeowner awoke Saturday at about 8 a.m. when she felt someone touching her wrist.
"I sat up and screamed," said Robin Irvine. "He was taking my watch off."
That's when Irvine reached down and grabbed her bed-side ax, which leans against a small table, and took aim. Wearing her underwear and T-shirt and harboring no reservations about unleashing the ax, she chased the man down the hall.
"I would’ve gotten him right in the spine or the back of his head," she said. "I hit what I aim for."

Looks like a nice old hewing axe.I'm picturing you drooling onto the keyboard as you type, one eye rotating independent of the other as your hands mash the keys. - Sophist
