I had a very strange dream the other day.
I was on a street, carrying my laptop under my arm. As I walked past a mean looking individual, he flicked glowing sigarette ash at me and it burned my skin.
I promptly called the guy an asshole, and he promptly started to advance towards me with full intendion to do more damage then the stil burning ash.
And that's when it hit me -- I can't fight him with my laptop at my side! I can't put the thing down, cause his budies will steal it. And I can't fight one handed -- I'm good, but I ain't Neo! (I'm really NOT that good, since I haven't technically practiced martial arts in over five years.. Cardio Kickboxing doesn't count)
Anyway, I woke up with a major revelation: fighting one handed is exteremely difficult and I need to remember to allow my characters to run around empty handed otherwise they would get the crap kicked out of them.
