I didn’t mean to be rude

I was browsing Facebook after Christmas and I saw a picture of my friend’s young son with a toy rifle in his living room.

It was captioned something like, “He sure loves his Christmas present.” The kid was next to his father, who was showing him how to sight down the barrel.

Of course, I immediately thought of Ralphie in “A Christmas Story,” and the air rifle he wanted for Christmas.

So I commented with this meme, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”

I thought that was pretty clever, but apparently my friend didn’t.

She actually unfriended me!!

I guess it was offensive?

Seriously, though, it was a joke! I’m not anti-toy-gun! (I’ve even posted about that before.)

I’m not even anti-REAL-gun! I’m from ALABAMA, for crying out loud!

Anyways, my ex-friend, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry.

I’ll try to be less offensive in the future.
