An apology is order for the light hearted. I never intend to be callous to people but I’m not of a particularly sensitive nature. I might even be described as brash and I take no offense to that either. As it were, I am sorry to those individuals that haven’t been hearing from me lately. The truth of the matter is that I am a busy person and I have been dealing with a lot of stress from different aspects of my life. I am expecting to go on a deployment this year. And well I do hope everyone comes to my going away party and I probably, in a drunken haze, will tell you I love you (don’t take this to heart). The truth of the matter is that many of you will tell me that, ‘I will write you everyday! And send you care packages with booze! Just make sure you give me my address.’ I am no profit but I know I will give you my address and I probably won’t hear from you for at least a year. Oh don’t be fooled, I’m not looking for sympathy here, no…no….I just lived through this experience once. But I will tell you what will happen here.

(Random “friend”)Hey Chris! I haven’t seen you in a minute! How have you been?
I got back home from deployment (Afghanistan) last month. Oh wow! How that’s nuts, how was that? It was hot and then winter came and I experienced winter and what it’s like to live in the Central Asian version of Colorado…..
As I already know who my true friends in life are I will be polite and have fun with those of you who I probably won’t talk with again, or for a while. So here it is; SORRY! Truth be told, I won’t even be angry with you. No, I honestly care about you as much as, when you say, “I wish you didn’t have to go”. That is no insult, it’s just honesty. As I have already apologized to many of you, I would like you to know that I have a mentality of a famous artist.
“A sweet lie does not compare to the beautiful truth in life…”
-I’ll buy you a beer if someone can tell me who said that and from what book.
Well that’s the way the cookie crumbles and I hope I will have more time to blog…..hasta.
