Beer and sushi. I just really wish something so good didn't have to be so expensive. I could literally eat sushi and Taco Bell every meal, every day, for the rest of my life and never tire of it. And to think, the only places I've ever had sushi were Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arizona. I wonder what actual Jap or Okinawan sushi would be like. Probably taste like angels shitting on my tongue. And every time I pop one of those little bits of heaven into my mouth, I think about the fact that I came down on orders to go to Camp Zama, Japan, and signed a declination statement so I could stay in Kansas and keep training soldiers. DAMN MY DEDICATION!! I could have been eating real japanese sushi, fucking real japanese girls, and maybe even could have been a contestant on Takeshi's Castle and provided a good highlight clip for the show MXC. Ah well, I got something better. Two more deployments.
