Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

So does my tool fetish
really qualify as a fetish?

A subjective view

Well, I think so.

I draw strength and understanding and calming from handling tools. I feel diminished when they've been taken from me without my permission.

I do the other fetishes too. I have black leather wrist cuffs. I usually wear a "Pagan" pendent, (it's the waning moon, so it's my bear medicine shield today). I've been known to wear a bear claw or a shark's tooth. In my younger days, I even wore one of those Avon arrowhead pendents (hey, it was the late 1970s, at least I didn't wear the disco suit).

I've been experimenting with body paint for rituals.

So I do know a little something about fetishes.

Draw you own conclusions.

But I would invite you to consider why you believe "modern" tools can't be fetishes…
