Hare Trigger

This doesn't affect me.". Oh, doesn't it? You explain to the family, the wife and mother, the hundreds of little bouncers flitting about with unbridled excitement. You tell them why daddy isn't coming home. Sure, go ahead and have another glass of water or, perhaps, iced tea. Go ahead and look forward to that commercial break. Mark my words, it will be on your hands as you finally zip up.
