Bwog was fortunate enough to land two tickets to the 4th Annual Military Ball last weekend, attended by our nation’s finest. With increased respect for the work they do also came some interesting stories.
“And then I punched a car window back when I was on leave in California and I was bleeding and everything. And then I had to run like 13 miles, drinking from sprinklers on the way. Yeah, that was wild.”
We stood in silence. That was definitely not what we were expecting when we asked him for a story.
“You must be very fit,” one of us said finally. He looked pleased with this reaction. We awkwardly wandered away.
To be honest, our initial reason for going to the 4th Annual Veteran’s Ball revolved largely around two things: the venue (the fabulous Gotham Hall, which would definitely be someplace the Joker would target) and the open bar. We weren’t disappointed with either; after checking our coats, we were treated to a glass of wine, a panoramic view of the majestic ballroom, and the best dressed collection of people we had seen since senior prom.
