Everybody loves a BB gun. At least most ten year old boys. I was no exception. Moms, not so much. It took me months pleading negotiations before mom finely relented. But first, she said, I must write an essay.
Mom was big on essays. My all time classic was "Why I should be able to watch football with dad on Sunday instead of going to church". But that's another story.
So I sat with pen in hand and inked my masterpiece: "10 Rules of Responsible BB Gun Ownership"
1. I will not shoot animals
2. I will not shoot windows
3. I will not shoot people
4. I will not shoot my sister
and so it went...
Amazingly I was pretty faithful in abiding the rules I penned that day. I didn't even shoot my sister. Tempting target though.

"I'm in a bit of a hurry, Mimi, I would just like to purchase my phone and get back to work."
"No problem" says Mimi, " but first can I interest you in Mobile Me?"
"No thank you"
"... more text messages?"
"... perhaps a nice case?"
"... Do you want fries with that?"
"NO!" My God, get me out of here!
I rushed out of the store, phone in hand. I voluntarily signed up for this abuse, but let me tell you, I don't have to like it.
