One day, Harper may come to me and ask, "Why does life seem so unfair?"
To which I will reply, "Because sweetheart, sometimes you spend your entire childhood saying 'Nerf should obviously make swords' and they never do...until, of course, you're almost 30 fucking years old and it's no longer appropriate for you to buy them and even if you did, none of your friends will go along with it, so you'll have no one to play with anyway."
That is why these things fill me with a unique mixture of frustration, jealousy, and awe.
Hey Nerf, way to miss the obvious for decades at a time. Bunch of circus animals.
