I started not to confess this one. Seriously. It’s a bit much. But, if you are really going to get inside my head, then I should really tell you this:
I went AWOL once.
It’s hard to own up to this directly, so let’s do this in a ‘hypothetical situation’ way. Guess what I mean when I say that I went AWOL:
a) I failed to show up at an important event where my presence was anticipated.
b) I seriously let down a close friend who needed my help, when I shrugged her off and didn’t help out.
c) I joined the Air National Guard in college, and between the time that I was sworn in and the date that I was to leave for bootcamp, I decided that I would rather not go, but instead would get married and skip the whole “bootcamp” scene, so I just called them up and told them that I changed my mind.
Yeah, you guessed it. It’s C.
Don’t worry, though, I’m mostly a grown up now.
