I had a piece of scrap paper sitting on my desk for almost a year. It had one word: "Monster-baiting". What's the first thing you learn when you train to be a warrior? How to bait monsters, of course! Hilarity ensues. I've been waiting to somehow work in that joke until recently. The flashback training sequence provided the perfect outlet for some lowbrow humor.
Next week we conclude our flashback sequence with "Monster-baiting" Part 2!
