Gunshots heard when living in Humboldt Park, Chicago: 5-7
Gunshots heard when living in Lisle, NY, first weekend of deer hunting season: Infinite.
It's taking me a while to get used to the idea that these shots are trying to shoot NOT people. And it's still incredibly weird to run into dudes with huge guns wandering around like it's no big thing. Because, apparently, it isn't.
I am planning to spend the next two weeks being very visible, flaunting this season's hip orange accessories.
