Ice Cream

I ate dinner with 1LT Bromgren, SSG Jones and a few others from Bravo Company 1st platoon the other night at the DEFAC on Camp Fallujah. I had just been out on a patrol with SSG Jones that morning.

I was getting ready to get up from the table when 1LT Blomgren said, "Aren't you going to have ice cream?"

"No", I responded.

"We ALWAYS have ice cream."

Noncommittal grunt from me.

"This could be the last night you ever have ice cream..."

"Good point. I'm in."

We both had mint chocolate chip, and it was great.

I had ice cream again tonight at the McDonalds here in Kuwait... you never know if it's going to be your last ice cream.

And with ice cream... a cookie, because I wouldn't want my last ice cream to be without a cookie.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip:
