Spotted: Red Badge of Romance

I was waiting in line at an ice cream store trying to decide which flavor to get when I was distracted by a loud collective giggle behind me. I turned around and saw that the source of my distraction was, what I thought at the time, a group of 5 sophomore or junior girls in high school talking about boy drama, prom drama, shopping drama, or whatever high school girls talk about.

As I looked closer, I discovered that the source of their excitement was, instead, one guy proudly wearing his red badge of romance, at an ice cream store, at 8:30 at night. I could barely keep from laughing when I thought of what his pickup line must have been: "So, you girls look, yeah, I'm a Capitol Hill Intern."
