149: The Holidays Are Here.......yaaaaay

Posted by Michael J. Penney on

The holidays are here……..yaaaaay. On this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories, Mike and Bennett are talking holiday fun time and all the crap that happens around this time of year.

It’s interesting being deployed during the holidays. The images we remember from holidays past seem to bubble up in our minds. Big family feasts and presents under the tree. It’s like we all grew up in a Norman Rockwell painting. The reality is much different. For a lot of us, the holidays have become….blaaaah.  It’s just another time to waste money on worthless crap that we give each other as if there’s meaning to it.

Let’s call it what it is, “winter break”. It’s a vacation from work during the dreariest worst time of year. A brief reprieve from the snow, ice, and wind making our lives a frozen hell. A reprieve from the harshness of winter, now that’s understandable.  Translation, being cooped up indoors with people from all around the country bringing sickness from all corners of the world. Reminds me of bootcamp.

We’ll be here through the doldrums of the holidays. Give us a listen and share with a friend. Subscribe, rate and review the show now on iTunes, Stitcher and Player FM.
