Quit your sniveling, Kid

1982
My shack and the neighbor's house were at right angles to each other on the same piece of property, and there was a tree right outside his front door. One day, I was trying to kick back inside my shack, but this damned ol' magpie was screeching in the tree outside Bouncer's door. After about 20 minutes of that bullshit, I picked up my Ruger 22 automatic and shot right through my screen door, knocking the pest out of the tree and in front of Bouncer's 4 year old daughter who happened to be standing just inside their screen door admiring the magpie, traumatizing the kid for life. I bet it was 30 minutes before she could quit screaming long enough to rat me out.
