Care Package Backfires

Some time a few months ago, a loving relative sent me a can of Slim Jims. I had been slowly going through them, enjoying them.

When it came time for me to pack up and move last week, I noticed that there was a lot of empty space in the Slim Jim can, and used it to pack a few of my items, one of them something Very Important. Of course, over the days following, I completely forgot about it.

That is, until today, when I began looking for that Very Important item. One for which losing it would potentially cost me a lot of money and maybe worse. Something Not Good To Lose. I was having something close to a heart attack when I couldn't find it, and was calling my old office to see if I'd left it...

Until, finally, I was meticulously going through every item in my room, and I came across a heavier-than-it-should-be can of Slim Jims. What relief! All is well in the world again.

Hey there, came across your blog a little while back. I am currently at Balad, but when I was here in '03, we were at Al Asad. Anyway, take care of yourself and post pictures of Al Asad if you get the chance. I am very curious about how the base looks these days, as it was almost empty while I was there!

I have had that happen to me so many times. I always think I have lost something dear to my heart and find it some time later in the most odvious of spots. Glad you found it and can breath alot more easier.
