So, All this time I thought Craig was in Germany. Nice safe and sound.
It's been about 6 months since I've heard from him. I wasn't even going to check my email right now I just got on to put in an address change and to check a car price for my uncle. :-/
If you didn't know I'm at the Baghdad International Airport and have been for almost the past three months. I'm probably the safest place I can be so please don't worry. [deleted] I went swimming at the presidential palace(the one we bombed the hell out of)
I saw that on the news and I thought about him but then thought, oh no no hes nice and safe in Germany.. far far away.
I haven't been shot at yet which is a plus. Driving through this God-forsaken city is like playing Grand Theft Auto - weaving in and out of traffic in a three or four Humvee convoy...missing cars and people on either side by mere inches. It's actually kind of a rush in a wierd sort of way. It also scares the shit out of me to think while I'm driving that any piece of trash on the road could be an explosive device or someone could be waiting on an overpass to drop a grenade on me or shoot an RPG at me. It's not a very comforting feeling. The only to cope with it is to not think about it. Of course you have to think about it while you're doing it, but as soon as it's over with you have to start thinking about something else or you will drive yourself insane worrying about it all the time. It might sound strange to you, but that's the only way I can do it.
I hope to hear back from you soon. I do hope that you are not mad at me. I will try to make it up to you the best I can. Take care and enjoy your summer.
Iraq - the 51st state,
But don't worry right [/sarcasm]
He doesn't usually sound like that. I should put parts of his old emails on here to show how he's changed.
I don't have a clue what to reply to him. I have nothing to say that can even compare to that.
Suggestions will be helpful!
