The other day, while Hubster was helping me make the bed with freshly washed sheets...I told him that fresh sheets on a bed; are truly my favorite of all simple pleasures. The conversation went on that if we ever 'struck it rich', I would not want a huge house or a bunch of maids...but I would want fresh sheets on my bed every day for the rest of my life. That's it.
Hubster served in the Navy and spent many an hour on a submarine...he missed an ice-cold Coke most of all. He's not even a big soda drinker, but he did miss Coca Cola.
As I think of MudPuppy, Mark, Christopher, David and countless other soldiers who sleep, eat and breathe dust all day, every day... I wonder... to those who are currently serving and to those who have served in the past.... what do/did you miss most? Even if you are a civie, please chime in...what would you miss most, if you were to find yourself in Afghanistan or Iraq for a year?
