347/366: Ding Dong Ditch
I believe my boys may be 'ding dong ditch(ing)' the neighbor boy. They say they aren't, but the neighbor boy is doing it right back to us. Three times. I can see him run away...he isn't that svelte.
After the third time I asked him to come near so that I could kindly ask him to stop ringing my bell.
He denied it. That's fine.
But he was hiding behind trees and being all commando.
As he walked away, I got a horrible pit in my stomach.
He was dressed in dark colors. He carried a long wooden branch that had a built in handle.
And in his shirt back...a plastic sword.
I've seen this boy in similar 'dress up' and it always bothered me.
Today, it terrifies me.
A "toy gun" search today, on just the first page, show 90% of the results not looking like any toy I've seen.
Maybe we could start here.
