What a great story.
How can that be?
Paul, I just left you a voicemail and hope to speak with you. I had intended to remove that line, but it made it to press. With your blessing I'd like to print your comment above in our letters section as a correction.
My wife says Gunnar was the one who yelled, "Fuck!" That's our boy.
A few years ago, I took my youngest son and his friend Niles to Calibers in lieu of a traditional birthday party. We tried out a variety of handguns on their zombie targets and it was a lot of fun, though none of us became expert marksmen and actual gunfire is incredibly loud. I also recall that loading ammo into a clip was difficult, and I discovered that the cheaper bullets misfired more frequently. I had previously assumed that misfires were a Hollywood plot device. Not so. You have a decent chance of survival against a pre-teen with a rented gun and cheap ammo.
Around that same time, we would often shoot BB guns in the backyard. A large plastic drink cup from Rudy's makes the best target because hits dramatically chip away its plastic without toppling it. My neighbor threatened to call the police.
My son recently announced that he is old enough to legally pilot a helicopter. I get nervous every time I see one.
and I will mention that every single time her name comes up, forever.

was listening to Jerry snort at every line of dialogue. We stopped making comments early on. I suspect the plot makes sense in powerpoint, but it's much less important than anything else you're thinking about. It was like paying the gas bill on Mars. I found myself wondering what was happening in the hallway, like I was missing something.
It was insulting. I always feel insulted, but especially by this whole Mars movie thing. "Hey, Petey! Do you want to see that one Mars movie?" This is it, people. The last straw.
There was never an episode of Gilligan's Island that left me so hopeless, alone and ashamed of humanity.
about the multiple glasses!
We talked about that concern. I suggested running a different cover, and interviewing other reporters about the experience of meeting her. In the end, though, we think ours was a good read. We strive to provide the most timely and insightful celebrity gossip under the gum display. (Psst: finish your emails, the library is closing in ten minutes.)
