Thought I would follow up on the comments to this post.
After correctly guessing that I was in Athens this week, readers and fellow Jarheads Nunya and SteveC both offered to buy me a beer if I started another riot while I was there.
Actually, the parliament building was about 4 blocks from my hotel and there was a protest scheduled by the government unions at 6:00 pm on Wednesday. Since I was already a few beers into the evening, I strolled down there and crashed the protest march – highly recommended…Although I think they knew I was not a Greek when I shook my fist and tried to imitate the chants…apparently I can’t do Greek very well ,…
Of course, crashing the protest broke all three of my personal rules – the rules which, if you follow them, will keep you out of trouble 99% of your life:
(1) Don’t go stupid places, (2) Don’t hang out with stupid people, and (3) Don’t so stupid things.
I will proceed to violate all three of these rules again in a couple of weeks when I go to DC to drink copious amounts of beer with Nunya and SteveC…
