We Were Ninjas…

November 20, 2010

Masked shadow warriors, all black everything… armed with stealth, speed, a razor sharp killer instinct, and a cache of weapons  and tools that would make Batman sh*t his spandex. Skilled artisans of the um…. arts… of deception and misdirection. Under the cover of darkness we were an unstoppable force, swift and smooth, but deadly like a pearl handled pistol. We trained relentlessly honing our minds and bodies in the fires of our will. Our technique was flawless, our style was impetuous, our defense impregnable. With clarity of purpose, focused determination, and utter ruthlessness we stalked the countryside striking fear into the hearts of peasants, emporers, and little sisters alike. We swore loyalty only to our respective clans and we bowed to no one. Ok, so maybe we HAD to do homework… and clean our rooms when we were told… and maybe even mow the lawn every now and again…. none of that mattered. For you see my friend, these indignities forced upon us during the day hours were of little concern to us… for there remained one unspoken truth. A truth that defined us, and allowed us to smirk in the face of adversity, authority, and even fate itself: WE OWNED THE NIGHT!!

We snuck out of the house wearing all black. We could (and still can) run down every form of martial art, tell you where it originated, and its key characteristics. We fought and beat the hell out of each other with crude home made weapons. We knew that Bruce Lee was clearly the one and only true deity. We were absolutely addicted to Cinemax, not for the softcore porn, but for cinematic gems like Kickboxer 4, China O’Brien, Ring of Fire, No Retreat No Surrender and any and everything starring pre Tae-Bo, post professional bodyguard, but always dead smack in the middle of fugly Billy Blanks… and ok, yeah… also for the softcore porn.
