One of my favorite comedians is on his way overseas to entertain our brave men and women and he’s posting a lot of pictures and commentary detailing the whole thing.
Last December (2008) I went to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the Seargent Major Tour for the USO. I did shows in Army bases all over the Middle East. I had never done anything like it before and it left me with a lasting impression. I took lots of pictures and wrote several emails back to my family throughout the trip, mostly to let them know that I was okay, but they were very detailed. I have intended since then to post these stories and pictures on my site but I am a lazy idiot.
Today I feel four percent less lazy and stupid than usual, so I am going to try to start posting these stories. What I intend to do is post an entry each day as if I was there doing those things now. The reason for this is that it means I have to do less work to edit the emails that I sent my mom and sisters. I don’t have to change all the present tense stuff to past tense.
So this will start tomorrow. But let me just add the caveat that… I might not do it. I have a lot of energy right now and I’m all excited about this but tomorrow I might just lay in a pool of my own vomit instead.
And so it begins…
By the way, if you haven’t see his now famous “Everything’s Amazing. Nobody’s Happy.” bit on Conan’s show, well, you’re in for a treat…
“You’re sitting in a chair…in the SKY!”
