    So I had an interesting experience the other night, and just wanted to share it with you guys.

    I met a girl at a New Years Eve party a few weeks ago. We hit it of pretty well, and I've hung out with her a couple of times since then, and we text fairly often. Basically, I could see things leading to a relationship with her.

    Last week we were texting each other, and the topic was vacations. She asked me what I couldn't leave home without... ;D So I told her my basic EDC, knife, light, multitool, etc. She said she's never heard of a multitool.

    Sunday, I went to her house to watch The Notebook, and I placed a condom in my back pocket, right beside my wallet, you know, just in case. Well as we were watching the movie, we started talking, and she asked to see my multitool. I showed her, and she asked if I really carry all the stuff I told her about in my pockets. I said sure, and stood up, and proceeded to do a pocket dump for her, laying everything on the sofa we were sitting on. She thought it was pretty cool, up until I pulled my wallet out, and the condom landed on the floor right in front of her... She looked at me, obviously a little shocked and embarrassed, and I said "I told you I'm always prepared."

    Needless to say, the mood was killed at that point, and the condom never got used. Oh well, better to have it and not need it... ain't that what we say here?

    Of epic proportions. Apparently it didn't bother her too badly, as we have plans for tomorrow night. I just wanted to share the story. Maybe someone will get a laugh out of it.

    Good luck tomorrow night.

    Thanks for sharing the story. I'm trying to think of a moral.

    I think the adage "The more you know, the less you need" applies more than "better to have & not need." Sometimes a piece of the EDC puzzle that some lack is a proper reading of the situation and tailoring their carry to suit it. I'm not trying to criticize you; just ruminating.

    See, the problem is that you didn't have it in a nifty color anodized titanium case. That would have made it all better.

    Thanks for the story, man. I was ROFL! :crackup:

    Cheers and better luck next time!

    Hahaha, nice

    Well the good news is your joke probably downplayed the idea that you thought you were gonna get in her pants. Kudos!

    Funny thing is, condoms can be used for more than just STDs and such.

    Do you know what would be really awkward? If her newfound curiosity about all things EDC led her to check out this forum...

    You didn't inform here that the condom actually a "compact emergency water carrying device"?

    The only reason any dude I know ever watched The Notebook with a lady friend was to get laid. In fact, one of my best friends ended up with his second child after watching The Notebook. Great story, bro - thanks for sharing!

    She should take comfort in the fact that at least you use them!
