How does a Marine de-stress and relax after a recent six month deployment to Afghanistan? Why….he watches his favorite musical, Anne, and sings along to “Little Girls”!
At least…that’s what my brother does.
We really enjoyed having him home for almost an entire month! I believe he is the most bizarre family member I have (funny weird), and I’m thankful that war hasn’t changed his personality. He’s back on base now, but I’m so thankful he is Stateside again.
My honey and I have the most incredible conversations driving home from a date night.
“The headlights from oncoming cars hurt my eyes. Feels like a hot poker jabbing through my eyeballs.”
“Why, what’s wrong?”, Rick asked.
“What’s wrong?!? I’m having what’s called a menstrual migraine. They’re not very pleasant!”
“Oh, no. I knew two days ago you would be having this problem soon; Satan appeared.”
***This is the point where I start to laugh hysterically, even though my head is exploding***
“I woke up to what I thought was the Dark Overlord from Howard the Duck saying ‘ I’m not April anymore! The transformation is complete. I am now… someone else'”, Rick explained, “I expected to see you spewing pea soup a la the Exorcist at any time. I knew then it was going to be a rough week! I still love you, though.”
It almost makes me feel sorry for him! Dealing with Satan, a Dark Overlord AND a demon possession, all within a week or so, can’t be easy! But then again, it’s not easy for us women either. It’s very difficult transforming into so many forms in so short a time.
Bless his heart.
Halloween this year was kinda….weird. This was the first year that we only had one child that went trick-or-treating. One left, out of five. My son, at fifteen years old, is now, officially, “too old” to dress up and go door to door begging for candy.
Kids…they grow up way too fast!
At least he was willing to pose for a few pics with his sister! Can you guess what she went as?
