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!
So you don't like to whistle while you workReplyDelete
No, I don't! ;0)Delete
There is a new Nerf bow and arrow with whistling arrows...don't buy that for Bubba!ReplyDelete
Mega Nerf gun..now on my do not buy list.
I saw the Nerf bow and arrow. I will not be getting that for my boy!Delete
The nerf got turfedReplyDelete
It did, indeed!Delete
We've had many a Nerf confiscated over here (most times it's my husband who loses his Nerf privileges lol).ReplyDelete
Haha! My husband has lost a few Nerf privileges in the past, too!Delete
One Nerf gun - confiscated!!ReplyDelete
Yes. And Mama won't be giving it back any time soon!Delete
I agree: Neft gun leaves the house.ReplyDelete
The gun hasn't left the house, but it's definitely well-hidden!Delete
I told you before that you need to put Schultz in charge of Bubba... he is menace to society.....ReplyDelete
Schultz was sleeping on the job!Delete
I'm sure it wasn't funny when it happened, but it sounds like it would have been funny to watch. :)ReplyDelete
I'm sure it would've been.Delete
LOL--could've been worse, I guess. I have a feeling you'll be reminding him of this incident for a while, though!ReplyDelete
Yes. What not to do if you want to keep your toys!Delete
Boys will be boys. Good thing for him you're calm by nature.ReplyDelete
Yes. Otherwise he'd have all his toys confiscated by now!Delete
Lol! .. I had to Google it. They're quite big aren't they!ReplyDelete
Yes, they are!Delete
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 LOLReplyDelete
Nice nephew! Maybe he should get startled a few times and see how he likes it. ;0)Delete
That must have been a scary experience! Glad everyone is safe, though. It would have been terrible if your violin was a casualty.ReplyDelete
Oh. You don't even want to know how angry I'd be if my viola was hurt because of it!Delete
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...ReplyDelete
Kids love doing that sort of thing!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Those little bullets can sting if they hit you, too!Delete
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). :)ReplyDelete
Watch out for those bullets, they can be a doozy! :)
I've been hit by the bullets a couple of times. Not cool!Delete
My four-year-old already wants one of those! Nope. Not for a long time in this household.ReplyDelete
Make that like, forever!Delete
Oh I want one! Probably not what you wanted to hear from me. But it sounds awesome!ReplyDelete
Haha! Just stay away from me while I'm practicing if you get one!Delete
Poor you! At least you got to keep the gun for a while.ReplyDelete
Just what I always wanted - a Mega Nerf gun!Delete
Might need to invest in a Kevlar headpiece...ReplyDelete
That's probably not a bad idea!Delete
That's what makes them kids. Being kids is so much fun and adventurous .ReplyDelete
It's all good, unless Mama ends up with a heart attack!Delete
