Life's little horrors

Postby Valp on Tue Oct 25, 2005 7:18 am

Because everything has an opposite..


Knowing that you have officers in your brigade that haven't been able to see/hear/smell meat in the frying pan or over the grill in ten years thanks to memories from their service in the peacekeeping troops in Kosovo *shivers*
We all enter this world in the same way: naked; screaming; soaked in blood. But if you live your life right, that kind of thing doesn't have to stop there

A quote from a former service man I knew:

We were joking around, and somehow the conversation made it to talking about cooking monkeys if you're in the jungle and need meat.

His mood changed in a lightning bolt, and in the most devoid of emotion way he said "Don't joke about cooking monkeys."
"Why?" I asked, suddenly alarmed
"They smell like human when they cook."

I've never been able to shake that feeling he gave me, when he just went from happy and funny to that cold, dead pan, lifeless voice.
It still gives me shivers.

WOW!...just, yeah, WOW! I talked to a few longtime marines (20+ years) before I considered enlisting at one point and I decided I never wanted to be like them. They weren't bad guys, I just desired to remain blissful in my ignorance of the horrors which they had faced. "Marines are soldiers, and well trained at one thing: killing other people." yeah, I think that was the line that really did it for me.

Getting a message on my answering machine from my grandfather, letting
me know that he made a blowgun, and wants me to come over to try it
out...nothing good can come from that.

"Lets just be friends" or "I love you but I'm not IN love with you"

and don't forget my personal favorite

The media and fashion industry's view of the ideal female body is garbage. I like my women with curves, not angles.
