I know you've woken up many a morning and thought to yourself, 'Self? What is a fun way to get a bruise on my shoulder?' Perhaps you had no answer to your very important question. I know because I, too, have asked myself this question many times. I could only come up with ways that didn't sound very pleasant. Today is your lucky day because last week, I figured out the answer.
First, you must convince some sucker to take you shot gun shooting even though you know nothing about shooting. If you can get a hold of some fake official hats, even better.
Before shooting even one round, make sure you get some pictures, because let's face it, life isn't about experiencing things, it's about how those experiences can turn into blog posts.
Next have someone trained and professional teach you how to use the gun. And, finally, put the shotgun against your shoulder, make sure no one is standing too close (and you have in earplugs) and shoot. Tada! Bruised shoulder. It's really quite simple. And fun.
When you're all done, take some more pictures.
These are some of my very favorite people (from left to right): Stephanie (My baby sis), Me (I guess I count as one of my favorite people), Candi (My bff), and Nicki (My dear friend. We told her she had to stand a few steps away from us because she can shoot a gun better than all of us combined and we were jealous.)
(This was me realizing how bad my shoulder would hurt in the morning....or maybe I was just trying to lick Nicki, I don't remember and can't be held accountable for my actions at that point because I had let my fake FBI status go to my head.)
