It feels like little reminders are everywhere lately. I work at Dairy Queen part time, and the last few nights have been fullllllllllll of Marines. A few nights ago, an elderly couple came in while I was explaining to my coworker that my boyfriend might graduate late from bootcamp because he has pneumonia. They heard, and we spent an hour talking about the Marines because their son is deployed in Afghanistan. I felt bad for them, so I gave them a discount on their Blizzards.
Then last night, a brand new Marine came in wearing dress blues with his family and his girlfriend. He had just graduated boot camp and had just arrived back home. I was the only one available to take their order and I had to fight back tears the entire time. My hands were shaking as I made their ice cream. They got a discount too:)
I'm just being a big baby about all this. Does this happen to anyone else?
