Beware of the Pain Train

My husband is just a big kid who never grew up. So this weekend, when my son was having a Nerf gun war with his friends, he had to get in on the action.

It started innocently enough. My husband was sitting on the sofa with a Nerf gun tucked under his leg. He figured nobody would see it. And they didn't.

When the group of ten-year-old boys came up behind him, ready to shoot, he gave them the shock of their lives. He grabbed his weapon, stood up, whipped around, and fired. All in one motion.

Let's just say, the boys didn't stick around long. They scattered, howling from the stings of the Nerf bullets, and retreated to safer ground.

My husband let out an evil laugh and shouted, "Beware of the Pain Train!"

Right. Especially one with military training!

  1. That's the sort of thing my late husband would have done. A big kid at heart. Loved the post Sherry, great to read.

  7. Sounds like a good time. Around our house, the nurf gun is used to pop squirrels on the birdfeeders

  8. Sounds like something my boyfriend would do, but to me! I'm better with water guns because I don't think I've ever actually used a Nerf gun!

    1. They actually have battery-powered automatic Nerf guns now. That's some serious rapid fire action!

    1. Nerf guns are fun, but when they bullets hit you, they kind of sting.

    1. I'm sure you have. Nerf is a toy company that produces a sponge-like material . Nerf footballs are soft and sponge-like, as are the Nerf gun bullets (except the bullets have rubber tips to make them fly.)
