From “Psychological Seduction”:
As a young child no more than seven years old, I went gift shopping with my mother in a department store named McCrory’s. The title, Psychological Seduction, comes from those memories. As I walked down aisles filled with toys, I was seduced by an M16 toy machine gun like the ones I had seen being used by soldiers in movies about the Vietnam War. I pleaded with my mother to purchase the toy gun, yet she had the sense to refuse.
