So this morning on my way to work, I see a soldier walking along the busy highway. There is no sidewalk and it is raining hard. Cars were passing him left and right. Well...I stopped and yelled "Hey...you heading to Hunter?!?!?" He smiled this huge smile and said "Yeah" I'm like "Get in!" His name is Ephraim and he's from NY. He is stationed in my town and lives in the same apt complex as I do. He doesn't have his license because he didn't need one in NY. Well...we chatted all the way to the base (I work extremely close to where my bf was stationed). He is in the process of a divorce and he just had ankle surgery. All of his battle buddies are being deployed next week and he is staying here. Anyway, so I thought that I could just drop him off at the gate...no...of course not...the guards wouldn't let me. I had to get a pass (wow...this is starting to remind me of 6 months ago...I did this all the time). So...I couldn't find my registration and by this time my scatterbrain had both the guard and Mr. Ephraim laughing. I guess my idiocy causes random boughts of laughter. =P Anyway...so we start to drive inside and I drop Mr. Epraim off and there it was...my bf's barracks. That was the last place I saw him before he left for Iraq. That is the last place he kissed me. The last time I saw his goofy smile. I didn't cry. He will be in my arms in 8 days!! 8 DAYYYYYSSSSS!!! Anyway, I just wanted to share this silly story. And just because a soldier is on US soil doesn't mean he doesn't need a helping hand every once in awhile. Make it a great day ladies...I know that mine started out pretty AWESOME!!!
