The weirdest thing so far...

OK, this is possibly the most surreal moment I have had in my 11 years in this man's Army.

I was en route to a meeting today with the Local National Air Force so we could do some planning for a major exercise we are going to do together (which I wish I could tell you about, because it's pretty cool. But you'll have to trust me). And it's me, my boss (a Major) and another American Captain in the car with a Local National First Lieutenant on the way from the Local National base to the Local National Air Force HQ. And my boss asks, "What kind of music do you have on your iPod, Lieutenant?"

And this leads to all four of us, three Americans and a Local National, riding in the Local National's SUV.

Singing Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler."



With backup vocals.

Do you get to see SNL while you're there? Because there's a newer recurring skit involving 4 guys (in a bar, in a car, in a hat, with a cat) sharing memories during the verses of a song, and then all joining in to sing the chorus together. With backup vocals.

(My description doesn't do it justice, but I think you'd like it.)

It's what I envision happening in your world.

I have seen that skit... it's actually a lot weirder than that skit. I don't know how my life has come to this point... kinda depressing, really.
