Title: Fire Away Author: amidalachick Notes: Written for the NSWFF Prompt challenge. Title taken from "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar. The "four touchdowns" line is dialogue from Married...With Children and not my own invention. I've been watching Married...With Children a lot lately, and this silly thing popped into my head when I saw the prompt. I literally wrote it in 20 minutes. Hope you enjoy! Disclaimer: Married...With Children is not mine. I just do this for fun, and much like Al, I make no money off it. ********** Al sat with his head in his hands, surrounded by women's shoes. Luckily there weren't any customers at the moment. Suddenly the bell over the door chimed. Al groaned and slowly looked up. His eyes widened. "Excuse me," the woman, a curvaceous blonde, said breathily. "I'm looking for some...athletic shoes." "You play sports?" Al asked. "Oh, yes," the woman said. "I box, and I'm also on a women's volleyball league. Maybe you'd like to come to one of our matches sometime." "I sure would," Al said. "Well, I'll get you tickets, then, Mr...." The woman's voice trailed off as she waited for Al to tell her his name. "Bundy," he said. "Al Bundy. Former football player at Polk High, where I once scored four touchdowns in a single game." "All in one game?" The woman gave him an admiring look. "Oh, yeah," Al said. He smiled proudly and flexed his arm muscles. "Excuse me!" a woman's voice snapped. "Can I get some service here, or what?" "Huh?" Al looked up, startled. There was no athletic blonde woman. Instead there was a very grumpy-looking older woman glaring impatiently at him. He grimaced as he realized he must have dozed off and been dreaming. He sighed, got up, and said grimly, "Hit me with your best shot."
