Turtle Power!

A bit of back-story: Red (a.k.a. KitKat) was trying to catch my little hair whispies this morning and managed to just ever so lightly scratch my face. It did not even show up until after I had come to work and ended up flushed from working under the IV hood, at which point one of the young techs asked what happened.

So I told her. Or rather, I told her that it was a wound given to me by the avenging pet rat of a martial artist I had slain. But not to fear because the rat may have scratched my face but I had managed to slice off his ear and that frankly, I was hoping the wound would scar and further increase my street-ninja-cred.

She looked at me like I was crazy and so I explained *cough*TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles*cough*.

And do you know what she asked? What she had the audacity to ask!?

"What's that?"

Really!? Is it really so much to ask that people always hold the cartoons of my childhood sacred above all others? Kids today!
