Shortly afterwards young Boris accidently went and got his father's hunting rifle, he accidently loaded it and accidently shot the maid dead several times.
Boris told his parents that he thought the hunting rifle was only capable of shooting deer dead, not real people like maids. "You kill fish with a fishing rod but you never hear of people being killed with fishing rods, do you? I thought it was the same with hunting rifles."
No one ever tried to comb his hair again . . .
