The Call Up

The boy's (bso) army call up papers came. Well, they came and then they came again. He got two. One for 11 August 2010 and another identical one for 5 September 2010. I wonder if he gets to choose. Its nice of them to give you a year and a half to pack. But, they make it clear that you belong to them now. Interestingly enough on the back is a list of what you need to bring with you. Boys need to bring 3 pairs of underwear, 3 T shirts, a lock (very important), reflective tape, pepper spray (women only) and a sewing kit. Well, bso, you have one and a half years to learn to sew.

Bwo was pretty shaken when she opened the envelopes. Now there is no getting out of it. Three years the boy will give to this country. I hope they appreciate it.

I'm sorry. I absolutely forbid this. Write to the army people and I said he's not allowed to do it. It's bound to work :(
