Leveling up

I've decided it's time to take my archery to the next level. I can't just keep going to the range to find targets, I need to hunt them in the wild, where I'll need my wits and keen vision to track down and nail a four, or maybe a five ringer right in the bullseye. You know, before they get me first.

As you can see, on a day like today, it'll take all the training I've self taught myself (?) if I hope to come out of this alive. You may have noticed that I've only got two arrows in my quiver. One is for the kill shot. The other is to split the arrow that delivered the kill just to prove it wasn't a lucky shot. The hat is obviously ugly, but I needed something to keep the hair out of my eyes. It's getting way too long up front. And the last thing anyone wants to hear when you come home empty handed is some lame excuse about how you had the target right in your sights, but a slight breeze blew your unnecessarily long hair into your eyes and you missed. I've heard way too many drunken hunting stories that ended with the old slight breeze hair in my eyes routine. I won't be one of them.

I know your tags have something to do with The Hunger Games. Is it big on archery? Is this whole thing a veiled insidery reference to THG? TELL ME!

Syar, it's not like we had all three books in hard cover and I was so obsessed with them that I bought them for the kindle so I could use the kindle app on my phone and iPad to read them at work. It's not like I read all three books in the span of 5 days and slept restlessly while my dreams were infiltrated by life in Panem. It's not like that at all. I don't know what you're talking about. I don't know what to tell you. Sometimes tags are just tags. They don't mean anything.

Oh okay, that explains everything. That's on me, Jon. Totally my bad.
