My friends, crazies, the lot of them.

“I still really want to join the Air Force,” she said.

“This is not the best time to join the air force; you know, war,” I said.

“Oh, I’m sure I could just get some sort of clerical job.”

“That’s not how that works.”

“…I kinda thought it was just flying planes and sorting papers.”

“What?!” I sputtered.

“…What? I could see the world, show N something more, learn another language,” she says dreamily.

“Dude! Dude… They do a hell of a lot more than that!”

“…Huh.”

“Wow, but wait – …You know what, you could be a missionary. Peaces Corps or something, go with your religious views. There’s traveling. And they teach you another language too.”

There’s a 30 seconds of silence.

“I don’t want to sleep on a straw mat in the Congo. Besides I don’t know that much about the Bible –”

“Seems to me you don’t know much about the Air Force either.”

“Um, well – ”

“What kills me though,” I said, “is your negativity about joining the Peace Corps but all willing to join the military. Bless you S.”

    This kind of reminds me of my wonderful friends during my sophmore year, who thought that they would take their years of working car washes in Grants to the next level, and start a car detailing business in Socorro. They figured that by charging $50 or so dollars per detail, they would have enough money for a Dodge Viper in about a year. At least the ideas of S are noble and somewhat thought out. Those guys were just idiots.
