I’m so exhausted. We had PT in the morning, a first aid class, and pugil sticks fighting. We learned mouth to mouth resuscitation. I wanted to put some lipstick on my dummy. Yeah, yeah. I haven’t gotten any in a month, alright!
The pugil sticks are big cue tip things like those in American Gladiators. Remember that show? We suited up with football helmets and padding everywhere. That **** is exhausting. After five minutes, I was ready to drop. And it was hard to breathe with the mouth guard on. It was fun as hell though. I literally beat the snot out of the other guy. Really. His nose was dripping.
It sucked that we were wearing boots. I have a big blister on each big toe. I’ll wear them tighter so my foot doesn’t move around.
I’m hungry. Dinner’s soon. Mmmmmm…chow. I’m gonna go read Contraband(newspaper)…Oh wait. It’s chow formation time. Never any time.
