Bob rolled up his sleeve because I asked him if he was in the Navy. I asked Bob if he was in the Navy because of his language. I like Bob. You’d like him, too.
Bob joined the Navy during the Korean War. Assigned to a ship transporting caskets back to the States, Bob vowed he would not spend the war on a floating hearse.
So Bob went AWOL for five days and 12 hours.
Bob’s punishment: four weeks in the brig, then put on a destroyer and he got to see the world. Bob got exactly what he wanted.
What do you want? Or more specifically, what do you want to change? Are you willing to go AWOL to get it? AWOL doesn’t have to be Absent Without Official Leave. For you it could be A Work Of Love or Acting Without Limits (this is becoming far more *new agey* than I planned). There’s no guarantee you’ll get what you want and you may not like what you get, but you might get a change.
