1 - Baseball and the redhead
No big deal, we find another set of seats nearby.
A redheaded kid started to annoy the three of us with his loud antics. He left and came back with a beer. I told my cousins I would take bets on him being underage and, before they could reply, he made a really big show about giving a Driver's License back to his friend.
To make a somewhat long story short, less than 5 minutes later the kid was pulled out of the stands into the hall by security. He came back and told his friends he was only in trouble for "swearing too much". This turned out to be a lie. Jon was coming back from the restroom and came across the security people telling him if he drank underage he would be thrown out of the game.
2 - Dave and Buster's
Joe, Jon, and I went to the Legends for a brief stint of man-shopping. I wasn't buying anything, so I decided to pass the time the same way I do when Melissa goes shopping for clothes - by doing embarrassing things without shame.
I danced. I juggled anything I could find. I pretended I was playing Battlefield in real life (okay, we all kind of did that last thing).
Then we went to Dave and Buster's. It had been a year since I had been there last time. Jon was with me back then, too. We had the same waiter that we had had so long ago. The very fact that we remembered him should go to show just how good he was. He can (and did) recite the whole "V" monologue from "V for Vendetta". It was awesome (again).
Then we played games. I won the most tickets - mostly on account of getting lucky once.
3 - Battlefield 3
We played Battlefield 3 every night after coming home from the day's festivities. We played as a team and, in doing so, won a lot.
That was a short story.
In other news:
Melissa comes home in 17 days.
Joe and Jon jointly taught me a new pen spin. It's nifty, but I'm terrible at it. I can combo it into the one I already have mastered about 5% of the time right now. Here is an example of a good one.

There's a church bell playing "America the Beautiful" outside my window somewhere. I've lived here for almost a year, and I have never heard a bell before.
