Too Soon? ‘Celebrating’ Lizzie Borden’s 125th Anniversary
125 years ago today in Fall River, MA somebody 'took an ax' and brutally murdered Andrew and Abby Borden. I thought I'd celebrate by 'taking an ax' to work today!
More specifically, a twenty pound 19th century shingle ax!
In the photo above, fellow Lizzie Borden enthusiast and co-worker Karen(2K)Kiley is taking her frustration out on a small pumpkin.
The Instagram video above shows a quick 'whack' on a completely innocent carton of delicious ice cream!
I haven't been able to get the ax back from her yet.
In the last couple hours, she has chopped a half cord of wood, created a 'new fire escape' in the kitchen area and prepared a fruit salad out of several pears. (Lizzie Borden reference)
I think I'll wait until she stops wielding it before I ask her if I can have it back.
In the meantime, please celebrate today's anniversary safely!
