Battle of the Bullet Holes

February 18, 2009 at 9:31 pm 4 comments

I spent Tuesday afternoon at a Panera Bread in Roanoke, Virginia. The free Internet came in VERY handy in handling a variety of issues stemming from a recent email migration. Once all the fires were put out, it was time to hit the road and when I headed out into the parking lot, something caught my eye– A Ford Explorer with a bunch of those fake bullet hole stickers on its back.

Here’s a picture of it… next to my XTerra… which sports a REAL bullet hole.


Fake bullet holes, REAL bullet hole

Now based on the license plate, the driver of this vehicle apparently has a Purple Heart. That means even though the vehicle doesn’t have a real bullet hole, it is very possible the driver has remnants of a bullet hole on his/her person.

So in this particular Battle of the Bullet Holes– I think I lose.

(or win, depending on how you look at it)

    Had they not been a veteran, I’d been tempted to call them a poser. ;)

    @Aaron– haha, yeah! I think my first thought was something along the lines of “Oh look at you, thinking you’re so cool.”

    Then I noticed the license plate. :)

    I have been trying to find Jeremy Turner since I was 17 when he dropped off the face of the planet! He used to live in the Sudley area of Manassas,VA then went off to college @ evergreen I think. I just googled his name to see if I could happen to find him and I found this bog about the counting crows singing, funny:) Can you get him to email me or look me up on face book? Or has he dropped off the face of the earth again :)
