Have You Ever Put A Gun In The Laundry...

Yep, that's what happened. Someone, I don't know who, well I do but I can't tell you. Put a gun into the washing machine here on the FOB. Fun for all of us.

So the local national that does our laundry found a fucking gun in the wash.

Am I the only one that thinks that your laundry bag would feel a little heavy if there was a gun inside as opposed to just clothes?

Well then after that they decided that they needed to make sure that everyone had their sensitive items. A military term meaning, "anything that costs more than any soldier makes in a month". So they sent the NCO's all over the FOB chasing everyone down and seeing if they had all their shit.

Fun for me.

You should see this guy now. All running around the FOB in all his gear which weighs a fucking ton. And he has to do it all the time, every minute of every day which makes me happy because as he runs by, yes he has to run everywhere, I get to laugh hysterically at him.

Well, I know that we should keep our weapons clean but putting them into the laundry might be a bit much...


I love you mom...


  1. Cleanliness is next to godliness I was always told - but it looks like this guy took it to another level. Note: I said guy as I am sure it wasn't a girl - we are more detail oriented and as much as I hate to reinforce the stereotype, we know to separate our "delicates" ;p

    Ok - I see you are back in rare form. See previous comment as the wiseness of restricting the view. Hang tough! And if no one's said it lately "Thanks!"

  2. mudpuppy...wasn't there a Beatles song, "Happiness is a Clean Gun"? ;)
    sorry, I'm watching the Grammy's and "Sir Paul' is receiving way too much air time for my liking!
    I'm tickled you are back, ugh...back to the Grammy's!


  3. Is THAT what was thumping around in the dryer?
