Have a Cigar!

"The Adventures of Private Chicken... as clucked to SGT F"

SGT F is a Twisted Few wine club member, serving in the US military someplace in Afghanistan, with his (t)rusty sidekick, Private Chicken. SGT F sends us periodic transcriptions of Private Chicken's tour of duty. (If you missed the first episode, here it is!) Your next installment...

Now, this is the life! Welcome to the third deck of the US National Support Element, or NSE for short. Here, we are able to relax (as much as possible) and enjoy the wonderfully crappy air. Every Tuesday night is cigar night (where we get to sit around smoking cigars - NOT drinking brandy and congratulating ourselves on being masters of the universe….). This is one of the few things we get to do that breaks up the monotony of being here (Private Chicken, you just got here - you don’t know about monotony yet - remember last week's theme…?)

No, the Private is not smoking his cigar - he has no way of holding a lit object. He is enjoying the camaraderie of the fellow soldiers and wondering why there are no chickens to be found anywhere (I just haven’t got the heart to tell him yet….) On some days, the view can be pretty nice but since they burn everything here (and I mean everything…) the air is downright awful - I did not know we were surrounded by the mountains till my second week here… [Actually, sounds just like growing up in LA - El Jefe]

The Private is missing California and his other family, but knows there is a mission to accomplish (embrace it, Private - embrace it…). He has been getting a little soft so next week we will show you where we go twice a day - the gym…..

some great submissions! However; I could totally see a video short, featuring the Video Conference Chicken on one end and a very baffled, confused and frustrated "business" type on the other end. My experience is that it's difficult, at times, to get a rubber chicken to focus."

I am full of emotions after reading this post. I really like it and it is good, that author decided to write on this topic. I would like to read his another posts. They might be really interesting.

That’s a nice way to write down an experience. Never heard something like this, describing one’s experience at a place. And here, being at an army camp, you described the experience totally different manner. Nice one.
