Friday I spent a couple hours hanging by my hands from the ceiling while a guy with a knife tortured me. The knife was okay; the hanging less pleasant.

An earlier text exchange between me and the Slayer

HER: I’m working today
ME: Cool. I’m going to be tortured to death by a rogue military operative.
HER: Have fun. C U tonight.

The woman in my life is very understanding.

Yes, it was a movie. Yes, it was fun.

Also, very, very uncomfortable. Apparently, hanging from the ceiling is not great for the circulation in your hands.

It probably didn’t help that I had to keep making jokes during the filming. I can’t help myself. I just like to see if I can make guys break character.

Rogue Military Guy: You’re awake. I’ve got fifteen hours to kill. Tell me what I want to know or I‘m going to see how long I can make you hurt without dying.

ME: You had me at “You’re awake.”

He laughed. On the other hand, it meant we had to do another take.

But it was worth it...probably. I’ll know for sure once I get feeling back in my right thumb.
