Demolition Derby Report

A quick follow up on my post last Wednesday. My friend "A", fresh back from Fallujah, entered our local demolition derby at the county fair. In the first round on Saturday, he didn't last very long. The battery in the car exploded in the first minutes.
Which meant he was able to compete in Sunday's "mechanics derby" where cars that broke down in the first round compete after being repaired.
He won. It wasn't even close.
When I asked "A" about it, he said "piece of cake. A lot easier than dodging IED's".

A man with perspective. It's a beautiful thing.

And I don't mean that in a snarky, sexist manner either.
