Last year for Christmas my wife gave me a gun. I have no idea where she got the idea that this was something I had been desiring. Truthfully, I don’t think I had been pining for a firearm. Nonetheless, I was immediately intrigued when I opened the box because I sort of had been secretly pining for a gun. Ironically, this whole incident relates to that oft-mentioned draft post that I’ve been trying to write for about a year.
Unfortunately, we were not able to find ammunition for this gun until recently. Also, I had no idea how to use it and was at the mercy of a friend who is a gun expert (I am very concerned about gun safety and becoming a good shot). The guy also happens to be a doctoral candidate and a young father with zero time to spare.
Today, it all came together.
