My ex-boyfriend is currently serving his duty in Iraq. Around here, he's only known as Iraq. "I got a phone call from Iraq today!" "Oh, the whole country?" "Ha ha, very funny."
The only reason why I'm bringing him up is because I have a soft spot for soldiers, especially those who are deployed, and next week is the fifth anniversary of our invasion of Iraq. I'm thinking about him. You can think about him, too. Good news is that he'll be back in April.
Oh, and if you used to work at Shoe Carnival way back in the day when it existed on South Boulevard, you probably know who I'm talking about. He used to be the general manager before going back into the army.
Support the troops!
