I have awesome friends.

After seeing the picture of the awesome shirt, my friends decided to buy me the shirt for Veteran’s Day[1].

Awesome indeed.
[1] I don’t usually think of Veteran’s Day as a gift-giving holiday. While I certainly welcome the shirt (it does, after all, put off the dreaded Laundry Day by another day), I feel a bit sheepish in the face of all the attention my friends have been giving me. I did a job, got hurt, and came home. Not a big deal. Seriously, if you feel that you should honor veterans, that’s fine…but please direction such honor towards those who Went There and Did That. They deserve it, not me.
