soldier boy

8 Jan

He had his passing out parade yesterday and boy, was it hot.
there was a couple of dragon boaters rowing around.
my dad was kind enough to drive me there, amidst the heavy traffic.
it really was much like a well-rehearsed play (:

the men marching in unison and the loud siren.
the smiles and chatter of excited parents and girlfriends and friends.
the hugs, the picture-taking, the smell.

oh
my
god
the
smell.
