Nice try.

I got an email earlier today that something to the effect of, "I'm a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner and I'm doing a story on Streetwars. I'd like to ask you some questions and get a few pictures. Would you be interested in participating?"

The email address was @thesfexaminer.com, a domain that was registered about two weeks ago, when Streetwars started.

I wrote him back and said, "Sure... what would I need to do?" and he responded saying that he'd like to set up a time to meet, and possibly tag along on one of my missions. This is actually kind of smart, because if I fell for it, I'd invite him along on my hit, and he could get me, and then get my target, which he'll have inherited.

I responded and told him I'm doing a hit tomorrow night. The plan is to lure him to a place where I can watch for him from a safe place and soak him when he comes within range. This won't kill him, but it'll neutralize him for 24 hours, and will give me an awesome story.

I have to say that at this point, I'm growing a little weary of Streetwars. It's really a lot of work, and my chance of success at this point is kind of low. If I don't engage my current target by Thursday, I'm sunk. At the end of this week, Sudden Death will start. I don't know how Sudden Death works, but it sounds like it'll be the kind of thing that requires even more time. Plus, I just learned today that I have a meeting in Seattle next Thursday and Friday, which means I'll only be around for three days of Sudden Death.

Damn, dude. It really does sound like a lot of work. I admire your stamina.

Don't admire it too much. It's quickly running out.

Hey, you lasted way longer than I would have been able to, that's for damned sure.

Are you glad you did it?

Totally glad I did it. It's seriously been a lot of fun. I just wish I had more time for it. I guess that's the part that's a bummer - it's been a constant reminder that I've succumbed to the grips of adulthood, where I have to put things like my job ahead of shenanigans and tomfoolery.

I'm not done yet, though. I'm gonna play it out as best I can given the other stuff I gotta do over the next couple of weeks. If I go out, it'll either be because someone seriously wanted to get me, or I'll be disqualified for not making quota.

Damnit, when you sign on to the life of an assassin, you sign on FULL TIME. Do you hear me soldier? So get out there, and soak some ass.

Over and out.
