A group of people were milling about outside the gate, chanting "Water, water, we want water!" and "H20, H20!"
Angry farmers who thought Nancy Pelosi was in town? New recruits being hazed? Navy wives driven mad by thirst?
WHAT WAS GOING ON IN MY BACKYARD?
I had to know!
So like any good
Water, water, they got water!
Well, the grass did, anyway. The tanker sprayed some on the grass, but not on the people.
And just like that, it was all over. The vehicles drove away without any fanfare and traffic began flowing through the gate once again as if nothing had happened.
It was just a training exercise. Nothing to get excited about.
We do that kind of thing here.
