More Carlos

I wrote that our friend Carlos was joining the army. We went out with him last Saturday night after we got back from the beach. It was a lot of fun. No one threw up, but everyone was drinking.

So I got this email from Carlos today.

"Thanks to everyone for coming out. Some of you I haven't seen in quite a while, and it was great to catch up. As you can imagine, this hasn't been an easy decision (and the prep a pain in the ass), but everyone has been so supportive, even congratulatory. I can't tell you how much that means. I left Saturday night feeling truly blessed. I look at all my good friends and the caliber of people I know - I feel proud. I know this trip is only for training so I don't mean to be sappy or overdramatic. But most of you are aware that I will probably see action soon after, as some of you and many of our friends already have. Yeah it makes me quite nervous, but when I look at who I'll come home to, I consider it an honor.

Anyway, enough rough stuff. I know I'll be missing some weddings and birthdays and christenings and I'm sorry, but congrats where applicable and we'll just have to party twice.

Special thanks to Big-D for getting us the keg. Love you bro, and we'll have many more.

See you all this fall. Wish me luck and I'll be in touch.

Luv,

-Carlos"


I consider it an honor to have let that man touch my boobs.

Tell Carlos to remember that there's no such thing as heros.

I think he knows. If you knew him, you would know he's doing the right thing.

Man, I really miss the days when me, Carlos, and Mason would drink gallons of liquor and play Mortal Kombat or Twisted Metal completely wasted.

I guess I should specify those games on the Playstation 2. Although with our drunk asses, we'd probably try to act it out in person.

So all a guy has to do is be military and he gets free boob-touching?

*digs through closet for old uniform*

Does the uniform still have to fit? Er, I mean...

If I had known that was one of the fringe benefits of signing up for the Army I may have enlisted.
