Write something about: the troops.
Had a productive and happy Mother's Day here today. Gave Kat a fun and impractical gift after breakfast, then spent the rest of the morning doing chores around the house that have been neglected for too long (mowed the lawn, washed the bathtub, bathroom sink, and toilet, got caught up on laundry and dishes).
This afternoon all four of us made the trip in to town to check out a small market (ended up buying a couple jars of local juice - pear and grape) and then we went to Kat's brother's place for a big family dinner. Kat's parents were there, along with Becky's visiting mom and aunt. Good food and good company.
Then we got the boys home and struggled to get the both of them to sleep. So now I'm quite exhausted and ready for bed myself.
"We need to rally the troops!"
"We need... what do you mean, why?"
"I'd think that one's pretty obvious. It's a one word question. This isn't like that time I asked you to call the president of France and only speak in German."
"Yes, well, I don't think you ever did properly explain that one."
"... what were we talking about again?"
"You said the troops need rallying. I'd like to know why."
"Right. Okay. It's just that they look as though they could use some cheering up. Don't you think?"
"What do they have to be upset about?"
"... you mean besides the near constant threat of death and or dismemberment?"
"People in big cities live with that feeling every day, you don't see them getting inspirational speeches and what not."
"They also have access to coffee."
"So do our troo... wait, do they?"
"No, sir. We ran out yesterday and the next shipment isn't due until the end of the month."
"Good God man! We need to rally the troops!"
