I have never cleaned under a toaster with a toothbrush, and I do dearly hope that I never will.
Just wondering, if Vachel gets like this every year around this time, shouldn’t Ted have been expecting it? Or is Vachel’s first winter with Ted and Blake?
I once had to clean the latrine floor with a toothbrush in return for getting lippy with the First Sergeant.
Let’s see… Venezuela… cabins…
Nope, I got nothing
Venezuela… fever… Dengue? Come on, there’s gotta be a hidden joke in there somewhere!
@Ronald, well, maybe. It isn’t distinctly said that this is nor normal, just that for the moment, Ted was clarifying. But it was the first year that we as readers were with them, so it plays somewhat to us as well.
@War_Pig, glad to hear you’re a bit lippy, bummer about the latrine tho. :)
Hm. Perhaps, @Frank, I should put that in the title until they actually get there, to not give it away for new readers.
@ Christopher. Yeah, my sense of humor and wit used to land me in hot water occasionally. Sometimes the 1SG laughed, sometimes I got grout detail in the latrine with the toothbrush. One of my old drill instructors in USMC boot camp told me; “I only keep you around for laughs and because you can shoot like Carlos Haithcock.” He’d usually say that to me as I was doing beaucoup pushups for having something, which I thought was clever, to say. Once in a while I’d go too far and get smacked for it in boot camp (1970), but usually I just got the chance to make my biceps bulge.
