The soldier and I on the phone:
“That helmet thing… you had these two big guys. They were going to help you. And you told the, no man. It’s okay. We’re okay. Not a minute later, you’re swinging that helmet at me.”
“You were trying to catch me off guard, but I never let my guard down,” he said. “You don’t remember this, do you?”
“No,” I said, as the memory faded in.
“Well I do. It’s okay. We’re okay. But I didn’t drop my guard because I know how tricky you are.”
“I’d played blackjack with you, couple times,” he said.
“Yeah. And my poor compatriots. You’d come on the base and play with them too. All sweet and innocent Elsa, you’d come in there and take them for their nickels and dimes. Whatever they had, you’d take it.”
I just shook my head. I was 17, and busted! 😛
Are you tricky? Where is Mercury in your chart?
