Yesterday was a very interesting day. The day itself was very boring as most days are lately. But come 3 o clock yesterday afternoon started our company party. So me and my friends from my section went and changed into our civvies (civilian clothing) and headed out to the recreational area on post here. As we pull up what do I see? A beer cart with Miller Lite on tap. I couldnt have been a happier soldier. We were having a huge cookout with hamburgers, hotdogs, and HUGE racks of ribs. So picture over 200 people eating good food and drinking beer....yummy beer. Well, as the afternoon progressed into evening, I was getting pretty lit along with about a dozen or so other soldiers and we were having a grand ol time. We all decided to do our own singing above the songs and somehow I got up on top of a picnic table and singing "I Love this Bar". I should have known then I was getting hammered but hindsight is 20/20. As we are singing, one of the guys comes running up dressed up like a cheesy wrestler with a gawdy blue mask on calling himself the Masked Avenger. Let me tell you he looked really ridiculous at an Army outing. He was dressed more for a kid party. Anyway, he starts singing with us and getting even drunker with us when someone started chanting "In the lake, In the lake!" As the chants got louder, you could tell he was on top of his own little world. So, like any other egotistical, wanna-be macho person he took a mad dash for the lake and jumped in and started swimming in this little lake all dressed up with his mask and cheesy tights. Needless to say, we pretty much kicked all the kegs and ate some good food. So around 8 someone gets the idea to go to a local club. Only problem is that for the next couple of days we are on lockdown and cant get off post. But anyone can get on or off if they arent in the military. Sometimes I feel like they treat us like caged rats with no privilages. Oh well, at least I know that I will be home for a few days soon and a hiatus to the madness. Then the big countdown will start till the madness is over this time.
