So I begin today with a little bounce in my step because I got to see Obama win this little election of ours. Nice... Makes me so very happy. Not to mention I get to sit here and give Pigpen a rash of shit about it for the next four years.
And what does my friend Pigpen have to say about all of this. Well, he says, and I quote, "While you guys are having a love in, I am going to go and nuke a gay whale for Jesus." Apparently you cannot get any more right wing than that, and Pigpen is having a hard time dealing with his new boss.
Ah, but before I get too far into this let me explain the title. "Hello Mr. Polish Man, I like your hat." Well this is in reference to all the Polish soldiers that are here with us waiting to go to Afghanistan. Now the US Army has a uniformity standard. We all have to look the same, all the time. Kind of a 1984 meets your wardrobe kind of thing. Apparently, the Polish army does not have such strict standards. The Polish wear some of the weirdest hats I have ever seen. Some wear berets that are like infant sized, some wear boonie hats that are a kind of eastern European crocodile dundee thing. These guys are awesome, they walk around to smoke, and shower and what not, totally in their tighty whitey's. Not that I like to see Polish men in their skivvies but it just makes me laugh that I would never walk around if I didn't look just like everyone else. These guys just don't seem to give a shit. Not to mention one of them has a "Mo-mullet" I mean it is half mohawk and half mullet. It's a beautiful thing. And last but certainly not least there are the chin pubes. Yes that's right, chin pubes. The Polish soldiers, or at least every third one seems to have pubes growing out of their chin's in kind of a pre-pubescent ZZ Top sort of thing. And I have to be clean shaven every morning. I am so friggin jealous.
Moving on, I may not be writing for a few days or weeks, I don't know. I take that back, I will be writing but I don't know if I will be able to post. I don't know what kind of internet we are going to have at the FOB. So I leave you in the care and good graces of the Lord.
Lastly, thank sweet merciful God Obama won. Now I can give all the Republicans here a huge amount of shit. Which makes me happy. Not to mention all the guys back at "the bar" especially you Paulie and Tony, how you like them apples, baby.
But anyways, things will be getting real, real soon so stay tuned. Up to this point this blog has been driven by my rather adolescent sense of humor. It's about to get driven by the absolute lunacy that is war. So sit back, relax, embrace the suck of it all and keep on reading.
I love you mom...
