    When cough drops where like crack cause you couldn't get anything else with flavor. Now I can't stand the damn things.

    My Platoon had a stash of antihistamines and other sniffle shit behind one of the drawers in the supply room. Anyone that went to sick call and didn't use all of the pills and potions that they were given would contribute to the stash. As far as we could tell from the notes on the box, that stash had been going on for years and was passed down from platoon to platoon. That shit was fucking gold.

    1992- I was in fourth grade. My teacher was Mrs. Vahn. I was stabbed in the arm with a pencil, witnessed a girl stab a guy in the eye with scissors, was suspended for fighting, and first met my current wife - she hated me.

    In 1992 I had been out of the AF for 9 years, married for 10 years, fathered three sons, just been transferred to NC (with AT&T), and was about to be promoted to Software Applications Manager for all NC and SC AT&T offices.

    it wasn't me. it was the monkey.

    I signed on in 1984, a few months after the split. Good times. Unlimited overtime.
