Our first bullets fired! That may not seem like a big deal now, but trust me, when re-readers come back over this page in the future, it will make sense. I mean, there’s not a twist with bullets or anything. It’s not like bullets are symbolic like oranges and death in The Godfather. There’s just going to be a lot of them. It’s like the first BLAM off the assembly line of the new BLAM factory.

Monty picked this gem of a song for this scene, and I nodded a lot when he played it for me. Don’t let the fact that it’s a Tiny Tim cover fool you– this is prime action scene music for real.
