Jesus loves to wear camo pants.

I just took a very brief walk around the University of Alabama's quandrangle and something funny is afoot. The bell tower has a small swarm of upright citizens rocking out to completely benign sounding Jesus rock. I turn the corner and approached the darker portion of the quad.

I hear some rustling and someone grunts "HUT.HUT. If you've got a clear shot then take it".

I look over and the ROTC is crawling through the leaves attacking the indian mound on the quad. Some army guys are lined against building walls. Some are running around randomly dodging sorority girls in pink long sleeves out for their hourly calorie-burn fest.

Seriously, is the ROTC trying to take out the Jesus followers?

It's so weird, but it took my mind off of work if just for a few minutes. For that, I have to thank both Jesus and the ROTC.

I love your title. Also, were the ROTC guys carrying guns? I can't imagine that they were, but...

I had SO much fun at your house last night!

They did have guns. I have no idea if they were real or props. no idea. It was a really bizarre scene.

I had a blast last night. Thanks for coming over!

You think I would know better by now, but I guess I'm a slow learner.
