Aaaargh a Meme
So Contagion wants to bring down my fury upon the masses by tagging me with a meme. Normally I don’t participate but this one seems to be fairly harmless and not so thought provoking on my part so I’ll give it a shot. I guess people want to know Five Weird Habits that I have. Honestly I have none. It’s hard to be the standard for normality and still be weird, so I’ll just have to go with what the weirdos that surround me everyday have said to me.
I have two phrases that I like using all the time, “For God’s sake be careful.” and “So that’s what they’re calling it now.” I use them all the time. Someone tells me they’re going to the bathroom and I tell them “ For God’s sake be careful”. Someone tells me they went bowling over the weekend, I say “So that’s what they’re calling it now.” I crack myself up.
I also have the super ability to sleep for long periods of time. My record was in Germany when I slept 56 hours straight only stopping to drink water and get rid of water. What a great weekend that was.
I might have a touch of OCD. I really don’t like my food touching on my plate. I’m not sure why. I tell myself that it’s because I want to be able to taste each dish distinctly, which also might be the reason why I eat one dish at a time too.
I once spent 16 weeks eating food with only a spoon. This wasn’t self imposed mind you, but I did it none the less. They wouldn’t let us eat with anything but a spoon in basic and AIT. They figured we didn’t have time to use any other utensil. If it didn’t fit on the spoon, pick it up and eat it. Also did you know that the going price for a slice of bread in basic was about $5?
I spent 3 years in the army without owning a pair of underwear. Before you get all grossed out, let me explain. In basic the Drill Sergeants gave out some free advice. They said, “Why would you want all that sweat and filth being held against your sack?” Made sense to me. For the record it was pretty good advice. After being out in the field for two weeks with out a shower you skin starts breaking out from being in contact with your filthy clothes (legs were the worse from the BDU Pants) but never once did the “boys” get any kind of rash. It's also alot easier to hold your rifle, pull security, and get your "gun" out to relieve yourself, when there is only one layer of clothes to get through. Anyway, after learning the benefits of “free-ballin” I just never wore them again until I got married. Come to think of it, a lot of things I used to do were stopped or modified after getting married….I guess that will be saved for another post.
I’m supposed to tag 5 more people but I have to put some thought into it. I’ll update later and point out the victims. Now is your chance to beg, plead, and compliment me so that I don’t tag you.
