Whatever it was, one thing is for certain: single girls like MacGyver's ingenuity and resourcefulness at using everyday items to get himself out of perilous and, oftentimes, life-threatening situations.
Examples: Oh no! MacGyver is stuck in a mine and needs to create an explosion with just bubble gum and a paper clip? No problem! Yikes! MacGyver is trapped in a cage over a fiery pit and needs to unlatch the door using a tube sock and dental floss? Consider it done!
These MacGyverisms left such an impression on us, most single girls don't even realize we have been MacGyver-ing ourselves out of dangerous scenarios for most of our lives.
Dangerous scenario: Ack! Out and about when the strap to our camisole breaks!
MacGyver solution: A-ha! A safety pin! (No safety pin? A-ha, an earring!)
Dangerous scenario: Horrors! A giant pimple has erupted on our face and we are out of Clearasil!
MacGyver solution: A-ha! Toothpaste!
Dangerous scenario: NO! We wake up and that giant, RED pimple is still on our face! (And yes, we are STILL out of Clearasil.)
MacGyver solution: A-ha! Visine drops!
Dangerous scenario: Ugh! Got into a brawl with our guy's bitchy ex-girlfriend, cut our knuckles open punching her ugly face and we're completely out of rubbing alcohol!
MacGyver solution: Alcohol? Did someone say alcohol? A-ha! Popov vodka (where did THAT come from?) in the freezer! (Some for me, some for the wounds...)
Dangerous scenario: Zoiks! We have a giant piece of chicken/spinach stuck in our teeth!
MacGyver solution: A-ha! That boring dude's business card!
Dangerous scenario: Eeks! That bra we can only wear with THIS dress is missing!
MacGyver solution: A-ha! Band-aids! (Note: only to be applied with the smaller-chested.)
Thanks to MacGyver, us single girls have learned how to make do with the contents of our pockets and our handbags.
Trying to escape from a bad date? What would MacGyver do with duct tape, tweezers and a bobby pin?
