So, I’m driving home from the store Friday evening waiting to make a right turn into traffic. A car passes in front of me, slowly, because it’s coming up on a stop light. There’s a kid in the backseat, maybe six or eight or something. I don’t know, they all look the same to me at that range. Anyway, his window is half down and he sticks out a N-Strike Maverick and pretends to shoot at me with it. It’s not hard to imagine that he’s done this to every car they’ve passed for their whole trip.

A range of reactions unfold before me. But, really, there’s only one option. I pull out my N-Strike Maverick and pretend to shoot him back. I’m pretty sure that was the most amazing moment of his life.

What, you don’t have Nerf guns in your car?
