Guess what? I'm still here. A big black helicopter didn't come and steal me in the middle of the night.
I did go in and talk to the Marine recruiters again today. It is starting to look inevitable that I will be shipping sooner rather than later. Do you know what that means? Inside of a week I could be getting called "MAGGOT EATING SCUM OF A VIETNAMESE WHORE" or something special like that. That's the kind of something you have to prepare your mind for.
I hope I don't get a short little Drill Instructor with a Napolean Complex. Some guy that will pull a stool over in front of me, stand on it, and then proceed to scream and spit in my face about how tall I am.
D.I. - "WOOD, HOW TALL ARE YOU"
ME- "Sir, This recruit is six foot six, SIR"
D.I.- "SIX FOOT SIX? I DIDN'T KNOW THAT COULD STACK SHIT THAT HIGH!!"
Oh well, if nothing else, my torment will be comical.
