...Boyfriend. Apparently I am one*. For those interested, the flashlight in question is the Streamlight 66318 MicroStream C4 LED Pen Flashlight, which is the size of my finger and runs off a single AAA battery for several months of real life use, and seems just as bright as the Stinger I was issued for work (just not as good of range.) LEDs are amazing little things.
*It's not a bad thing though.
