When I was a kid, I told myself that one day, when I was grown up and able to buy whatever I wanted, I’d own all the awesome Nerf guns I saw on TV and not just the simpler models my parents gave me. I’d have the most incredible Nerf guns in the world, and no one could say no.
I was going through the store the other night and sauntered down the toy aisle to the Nerf section. There were even more different and amazing models for sale than I ever remember seeing when I was a child.
I could, if I wanted to, buy any of those guns off the shelves now. But I didn’t. I have a transmission to pay for, along with rent, electricity, food, water and other problems. I can’t be buying Nerf guns anymore.
I turn 25 in a couple of weeks. I don’t want Nerf guns anymore. I can buy the real ones now.I just have to save up for them.
