Vermont rifle season ended yesterday and I wasn't the only one that had thoughts running through my mind. My wife did too. I was able to glean a few of the thoughts she had shortly after the season ended to share with you. Her thoughts are italicized, semi-audible mumblings under her breath are in bold, and clearly audible statements are in all caps and bold.
“Should I hug him or give him space?”
“Why does he just stare at the wall with a blank look on his face?”
“Did he just hug his rifle?”
"He did. He just hugged his rifle. You have got to be kidding me."
“Are those tears? OMG!”
