My friend, Melissa, is obsessed with all things Pentagon/FBI/CIA/Ninja related. Last year she and her hubby went to Virginia and Washington, DC to visit her sister-in-law who lives right at the states' borders. Part of their touristing (yes, that's a word. Because I just said it. So there) was touring the Pentagon. Of course, Melissa saw the signs saying "no photos allowed," but she didn't actually believe they meant she couldn't take any photos. To be sure the signs were only for the people who looked shifty and like they might be terrorists. Eventually she did get yelled at by a security guard in a golf cart type of vehicle.
Knowing that she'd get a kick out of the race I'll be doing in October, here is the email conversation that took place between us:
I’ll tell you the details when we head to lunch, but guess who’s going to D.C. in October… This chick! We’re going for a race – The Army Ten Miler (which opened at midnight last night/this morning and SOLD OUT BEFORE 11:00AM!!!).
[Note: I apologize for the cheesy ass "whoot, whoot." I was excited that Jason and I actually got registered for this damn race.]
I know we’ve already talked about this, but I am SOOOOO freaking excited for you guys!!! I demand LOTS and LOTS of pictures!! And I mean during the race too! Haha!
[Note: Melissa and I had discussed the race details over lunch.]
Are you TRYING to get me arrested???? I’ll see if I can sneak some. But you better be willing to bail me out. Hahahaha!
Hahahaha!! Hey, how cool would it be if you got arrested at the Pentagon? I mean, besides the body cavity search, it would be the coolest thing ever. It would put my silly “I almost got in trouble” story to SHAME! Lol! Take one for the team, Missy. I will totally bail you out.
And I would make YOU a t-shirt that says “My friend got arrested at the Pentagon and all I got was this shirt.” Yes, I will take one for the team. Because who doesn’t like a body cavity search?
Hahahaha!! Exactly! A body cavity search would totally add to the realism and authenticity of your story. Plus: coolest blog story ever! Bonus!
I’m totally excited about that shirt now too. Ahah!
So a couple of new goals in my life are:
1. Find new friends who don't encourage me to get arrested. Or succumb to a body cavity search (that just sounds
2. And see if I can push the envelope as I'm running around the Pentagon. Oh Lord. If there are no more blog posts from me past October 21st, you'll know what happened.
