Henry: I don’t know why you’re so obsessed with me being in THE SERVICE. That was only three and a half years of my life.
Me: Three and a HALF? Why the half?
Henry: Because I left early.
Me: OH MY GOD, YOU WENT AWOL?
Henry: Wha–? No! They let me and a bunch of others leave early because there was no war or anything going on at the time so I wasn’t needed.
Me, suddenly understanding: Oh, you mean they didn’t need you because you weren’t good enough.
Henry, tired of talking about it: Yeah, that’s it exactly.No tags for this post.
