|Woman Hits Man With Hammer||Sunday, 2007 June 10 - 10:45 am|
Surprise! A Salt Lake City woman, Amy Ricks, told her husband Joel that she had a surprise for him. She blindfolded him, then proceeded to hit him on the head with a hammer as she spun him around.
A hammer. On the head.
Joel was able to take off the blindfold, at which point he saw that his wife had a knife, sleeping bags, and plastic bags nearby. He escaped and called police; she was arrested and could face up to 15 years in prison for attempted homicide.
I'm not sure what the craziest part of this story is:
- A man trusts his wife enough to let himself be blindfolded, even though there's clearly something wrong with their relationship. The only thing I can think of is that he believed the "surprise" would involve nakedness, and two other women.
- A woman gets the idea that hitting a guy with a hammer will be enough to knock him out. (Tip to would-be-assassins: You'd have to hammer pretty dang hard to achieve a knockout... it's not like hammering a nail.) I wonder if she thought it would be like a cartoon, and a four-inch-long lump would rise up out of the guy's head as little birds twittered around him.
- The woman is so confident in her hammering ability that she doesn't think to HIDE the knife and the body bags before swinging away. I mean, if it were me, I would whack the guy with the hammer, and if he didn't go down, I would say it was an accident. And I would pretend I was hanging up a picture. A picture of naked women.

|I thought about trying that once but I knew it probably wouldn't SHUT HIM UP, so I just left.|

|Perhaps she was looking for ways to 'liven' up their relationship and just misinterpreted 'nailing' him?|

|Oh, and the knife was for 'protection,' the sleeping bag was clearly for sleeping, the plastic bags were for cleaning up the mess (if you know what I mean), and spinning him around was supposed to help him 'unwind' from a long day.|
I honestly don't see what the problem was. If anything she should be arrested for misinterpreting the word "kinky."
