Turn of the Screw

I'm blogged out today. I wanted to post an audioblog of a funny prank call I downloaded, but it isn't working.

I spoke for about an hour to Carlos. The fucker has joined the Army Reserves.

I'm proud of him. And worried. But really proud. I'm glad he has it in him. He's going to have a going away party the first weekend in April. He said, "I just wanna get laid."

I said, "I know plenty of guys who'll take care of that."

He said, "Screw you, bitch."

We joke like that.

I know many others either in training or actually over there or who have returned already, but I've known Carlos and Corrin the longest - almost as long as I've known Jethro. I'll worry.

Anyway, that's about all I have to blog about. Today was extremely hectic work-wise, and I haven't had a chance to wipe properly much less blog.

Zelda - I know what you mean about the worrying. My cousin just got back to the US a few days ago.

I'm sure he'll be fine. Probably only did it to get the uniforms for free, you know how women like men in a uniform. Or maybe that's just me.

Wiping properly takes priority over blogging.

Just remember that.

Carlos will be fine, unless of course he injures himself with his own gear. He has always had some kind of good luck that follows him around. Nothing horrible ever happens to him, even when he could care less about the situation around him.

But I understand why you will worry.

2 buddies in the military. Both good hearted, patriotic guys willing to lay their lives on the line for their country. I'm extremely proud of them too.

A friend of mine's 18 yr old son leaves next month. He's her oldest, one of set of twins, she's being brave, but looks like she is about to crack anytime.

I'll pray for Carlos and Corrin. We need more like them in this country.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts of Carlos and Corrin. Your family members and loved ones over there are in my prayers as well. God bless them all.
