Indeed, I can take this a step (!) further.

	At this most recent Pointless War, I was honored to receive my
	Award of Arms from TRM Logan and Arielle.

	Though I was seated in the front row (I always enjoy court) and
	didn't have but a few steps to walk, when Herveus called my name,
	I asked my lady wife to escort *me* into court.

	I wanted her to share in the experience, and for everyone else to
	see the beautiful, gracious angel who supports me and inspries me
	to the kind actions that the award recognized.

	(And she wasn't bearing any weapons. :)
