I said I was going to see Kitty Flanagan.

Well, I did, and she was very good. After the show, I went up to her and asked her for her autograph. I apologised for only having a ripped out sheet from a programme to have her sign, and whilst we were chatting I fished in my bag and brought out what I thought was my foldable pen. She looked at it, and said "What should I sign it with? That lighter? I could set fire to it, if you want..."

At which point I realised that it wasn't my pen I had grabbed from my bag.

So I rummaged in my bag, found my pen, and flipped it open. She then went "What's that? A razor?"

I'm so embarrassing.

But. I just read this and this


Seems I'm not alone.

Joe, I wouldn't carry the glass pen around in my bag - I don't want to break it.

It's okay Joe, she doesn't carry the cornbread mix I sent her, either.

I was making light of the situation...

Cornbread Chary?

I can understand why you'd have a lighter in your bag...but why on earth are you carrying round a razor?

Ooh, and word verification is "ssmog"

It wasn't actually a razor, Smerk, but the pen does look somewhat like one...
