Giving Mama a Heart Attack

My kids like trying to startle me.  But it never usually works, because I have a rather calm disposition.  Yesterday, my son succeeded.  Let me tell you about it.

I was practicing the Walton Viola Concerto and was in one of my intense focus modes.  All of a sudden, something whizzed by my head.  And it sounded like a nuclear missile!

Let's just say, it's a darn good thing I didn't drop my viola, or my boy would've been in even bigger trouble!

"What was it?" you ask.  A Nerf bullet launched from my son's new Mega Nerf gun.  And  I kid you not, the sound that thing makes whistling through the air, is just like a missile!

Needless to say, he won't be playing with the Mega Nerf gun for a while!

  3. We've had many a Nerf confiscated over here (most times it's my husband who loses his Nerf privileges lol).

    1. The gun hasn't left the house, but it's definitely well-hidden!

  7. I'm sure it wasn't funny when it happened, but it sounds like it would have been funny to watch. :)

  8. LOL--could've been worse, I guess. I have a feeling you'll be reminding him of this incident for a while, though!

    1. Yes. What not to do if you want to keep your toys!

    1. Yes. Otherwise he'd have all his toys confiscated by now!

  11. Close call :) I can see how that would startle you if you weren't expecting it. My nephew does that to my sister with his Nerf gun all the time LOL

    1. Nice nephew! Maybe he should get startled a few times and see how he likes it. ;0)

  12. That must have been a scary experience! Glad everyone is safe, though. It would have been terrible if your violin was a casualty.

    1. Oh. You don't even want to know how angry I'd be if my viola was hurt because of it!

  13. Yikes! An assassination attempt in the midst of playing the viola. My hubby's granddaughter loves to startle me at the most unexpected times too. She gets a good reaction out of me...

  14. I saw a picture online of a note on a front door that said, "I'm hiding somewhere inside with a Nerf Gun. Here is the other one. Loser makes dinner." It made me want a Nerf Gun but then I realized that having my boyfriend jump out at me somewhere would probably make me scream in surprise.

    1. Those little bullets can sting if they hit you, too!

  15. Ahh, Nerf guns--the bane of my existence! I think we have every one that's ever been made. We have the Mega, the Ultimate, the Ultimate Extreme, the Triple Ultimate Knock-Your-Socks Off Extreme Super Weapon (I made that one up in case you couldn't tell). :)

    Watch out for those bullets, they can be a doozy! :)

    1. I've been hit by the bullets a couple of times. Not cool!

  16. My four-year-old already wants one of those! Nope. Not for a long time in this household.

  17. Oh I want one! Probably not what you wanted to hear from me. But it sounds awesome!

    1. Haha! Just stay away from me while I'm practicing if you get one!

  18. Poor you! At least you got to keep the gun for a while.

    1. Just what I always wanted - a Mega Nerf gun!

  19. Might need to invest in a Kevlar headpiece...
