Life with 'song and Elayna 
5th-Oct-2010 02:27 pm
Elayna, brandishing a SRS BIZNESS Nerf gun: "Should I bring this on Halloween?"

Me: "What are you going to be again?"

Elayna: "Zombie slayer."

Me: "Oh yeah, totally."

Elayna: "I think I'm going to move my ring to my left hand so I can wear the fingerless glove on my right. That just makes more sense."

Me: "Why's that?"

Elayna, looking at me like I am particularly slow: "So I don't get blisters on my gun hand."

Me: *cracks up*

Elayna: "Really, Mother! Be practical!"

Well, you wouldn't expect a real zombie slayer to make a rookie mistake like allowing blisters to develop on her trigger hand, would ya? :-D

I think I am most amused when she calls you "mother" - I can hear the tone of voice I would use in such a situation and wonder/hope/expect that she'd be using the same.

Which nerf gun? The belt fed vulcan machine gun is good, but impractical to lug around. We have a maverick at work, and while it's great for target shooting, it's range is disappointing.

[GRIN] Nice story to come home to.

Oh yeah, she's totally prepared for the zombie-apocalypse.

Although, to be honest, I did sometimes wonder if the 'Slayer' archetype really existed as an actual type of person. Now I know that she does, and her name is Elayna.

The blisters I've gotten have all been from either thumb web, or trigger finger. I haven't had a problem with my rings, if that helps her. [grin]

Not only is there the danger of blisters, but she could damage the ring!

"No jewelry on your weapon hand" is a good rule!

Your daughter is awesome. But then, you already knew that.

The little girls know what the men don't yet understand!
