I look forward to posting and reading your post and getting to know you all better (some more intimately then others:dgrin). Who knows maybe I am thinking or hoping for too much from my membership here. I figure at the very least maybe our communications will help me reconnect with who I was before I had kids. (Narrator from a show I barely remember watching when I was a kid)"Lets travel back to the thrilling days of yesteryear" Back in the 80’s me and my penis were great friends. I would be partying and my little soldier would be put on standby for deployment and very rarely did he fail me. Once and a while and I think the alcohol in his system was what prevented a successful mission. I will not lie sometimes he was thrust into active duty on missions that if one of us would have been thinking clearly we would have fallen back and let fellow partiers get some maneuvers in. We survived and semi retired about 17yrs ago don’t get me wrong we still go on maneuvers and flex our muscle only now its our home turf no competition to taunt by posing triumphant above the freshly tamed conquest no foreign troops plotting and planning maneuvers to overcome. Lately it seems that most of the time he just hanging around until given deployment notice then he will spring into duty and once in a while depending on what his general has ingested or watched you can see him achieve his form and ferocity of long ago and after those times when we are lying there our heartbeat visible through uncontrollable tremors and lungs sucking air like I had forgotten to breath I look at my little soldier as he slowly reverts to his pre-maneuver state. I watch him fade and think to myself what might have been had we not been domesticated then I start wondering #1 Does this soon to be 38 yr old unwillingly aged teenager still has what it takes to negotiate an agreement to allow for maneuvers in foreign regions. #2 Is my little soldier up to the task of engaging and enacting maneuvers in and on a foreign participant with results that satisfy our host and for self preservation of his generals soon to be dusted off and displayed pride….
