So I am noticeably more grouchy lately. I blame the training, for real. We even got a letter issued from the commander saying that we will be irritable, jumpy, & have nightmares. Check, check, check.
So get this: on the taxi to the airport yesterday, I was talking quietly on my cell phone and there was this obnoxious idiot SCREAMING right in my ear, attempting to communicate with some other caveman.
“OMG IT WAS LIKE C-17 WHAAAAAAAAAT? AND THEN I WAS LIKE-”
“HEY. It’s not like I’m on the phone or anything.”
… on the bus back from training, some other caveman lieutenant had the foulest, most frat-boy mouth I’d ever heard. I was embarrassed that he was an officer.
“DUDE-DUDE-DUDE GET THE COCK OUTTA YER MOUTH AND-”
“HEY. Shut your loud mouth! Nobody wants to hear you!”
Tomorrow I’m going shopping and meeting a friend for dinner here in Spokane, WA. Hopefully that will lift my spirits. I’m just really stressed about having four days to pack up my house & move in a week and a half. Lost ten pounds in survival training. Snapped at Larry last night because he wants to rent a car & visit me while I’m in water survival training in Pensacola. For my own good, and the good of others, I have holed up in my hotel room today to avoid offing anyone else’s head & try to get well from a really high fever I had last night. Scrubs will cure all, I believe.
Lastly, here is a cute picture of Audrey Hepburn and a baby deer:
