So What Happened with General Petraeus. . .
Last week the election meant I stopped getting questions about Lance Armstrong's drug use. For many people in my life, I am the only bicycle racer they know. So they ask what I knew about Lance's drug use.
And if they asked about my race results, they would be SURE I was not on drugs, or that I should switch to better drugs.
And now I am fielding questions on General David Petraeus. "What is going on with Petraeus?" I heard from several people.
I answer by checking my iPhone to see if BFF Gen. P. has txted me abt wazzup!!!
Really, Gen. Petraeus does not regularly check in with Army National Guard sergeants. Or colonels for that matter. If the Army was the Empire State Building, the top generals are right up where King Kong was hanging on and I am on the second floor without a window.
But if David or Lance hits me up on the down low, fshizzle I will update my status.
