I walked into J’s room as he was playing at his desk, looking straight ahead and speaking earnestly as he “fired” a “shot” from a makeshift gun. “What are you doing?” I asked.

“Oh! Hi!” he said, glancing at me. “Everyone, this is my mom.  Mommy, I’m on a TV show, called ‘Top Shot with a Boy.’ I teach little boys and girls how to shoot so they know how guns work.”
