Are you wearing that

“Are you wearing that to the Oscars?” I asked. It was radical – like something Lady Gaga might show up wearing.

“I’m not sure,” she said. “I’m considering a protest of some kind, but I’m not sure if this is the best way.”

“It would certainly get you a lot of attention,” I said. “Makes a statement.”

  1. “Are you wearing that?” Ethan asked his buddy Josh.
    “Why not?” Josh replied with a smirk, “Who’s going to say anything?”
    At the bar, the two good looking, 20-something men eagerly surveyed the crowd.
    Spotting a clutch of young women with half empty beers, they angled toward their table.
    Three steps from the table, a graying, slightly overweight man grabbed Josh forcefully on the shoulder.
    “Where’d you serve?” asked the man.
    Josh looked at him quizzically
    “Your jacket, where did you serve?”
    The man’s dark eyes were glued on the military insignia that emblazoned his jacket.
    As his grip tightened, Josh knew that this was not going to end well.
