Well, that was certainly an awesome war yesterday. That's the furthest South I've gone for a Nerf war and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it went. My only complaints are the travel distance and heat, both of which were out of my control, but that's the risk I take when deciding I wanted to drive to and from Georgia in one day.Highlights:
+Being greeted by a round of applause when I opened my car door upon arrival
+Getting to meet in person and Nerf with a lot of new people from the boards
+Forcefully reminding people that I have 2 more shots after I shoot my Xbow
+Playing the shortest VIP round in the history of the universe VIA Cmdrmack
+Shadow scoring two headshots on me (incidentally, you should really invest in a reliable sidearm.
+Single-handedly pushing back an entire team during both rounds of CTF
+Being called "the Chuck Norris of Nerf" by a parent standing nearby
+Listening to people on the opposing team whine when I got picked in fear of getting shot
+The priceless look on Zaxbys face when I asked if he wanted to use my gun to finish the round
+Cmdrmack's kilt inadvertently flashing the large group of zombies that rushed him when he fell
The weather was harsh, but you can't argue with the fun that was had. There came a point where the heat just dominated everyone, and that's when you could tell I started doing so shitty (first headshot). This level of heat had not been seen since Armageddon 2006, when my hot glue melted off my Guru, and darts became mushy and began to fall apart. Luckily it didn't happen yesterday, but it was damn close. The Gunslinger round was pretty Effeminate, and it's a shame we didn't get a chance to finish it. I would've liked to finish it and have an Effeminate final showdown in the pouring down rain and thunderstorm to make it an ultra-dramatic Hollywood style scene but it was past our cutoff time anyways. We'll finish it next time.
I drove 7 & 1/2 hours through 3 states, battled through the rain and brutal, oppressive, and unforgiving sun; punched an elderly woman in the face and devoured a small child all while at SENO. So, I ask you: what did you
do with your day, yesterday?
