How to Avoid Missing the Point

1. Using your non-trigger hand to guide your shotgun barrel, aim at a position just behind the point.

2. Sweep the barrel through the point's path as the point moves across your field of vision.

3. As soon as your barrel passes in front of the point, squeeze the trigger.

Note to My Neighbor About My Sexuality

Dear neighbor:

Last weekend when you came over to my garage to borrow some tools, I noticed you took my sexuality.  I'm sure you figured it was your sexuality, and that you must have loaned it to me previously and were just taking it back to your house again.  In any case, no harm done – please feel free to use my sexuality all this week if you want.  But if you wouldn't mind returning my sexuality when you're finished with it, hopefully by this weekend (my wife and I need it Saturday night), that would be great. 

Thanks neighbor!

  For any motivational quote containing the word 'flaws,' substitute 'floss,' and the resulting insight will be even more empowering.

  He who hesitates at the lost and found is probably trying to be funny.
