You want to hear a good one? This is back in my MTI days. As a drill instructor, the look is easy to manufacture. You want to be intimidating. You want those brand new recruits to wonder what they just did. Anyone who has been though boot camp will understand this. The biggest thing about that job, when the day was done was to "turn it off." This is also a job with long hours. So every once in a while I got to come home at a reasonable time. So when this happens I would usually drive up to my house and all of my son's friends and my son would be playing in the street. Riding bikes, throwing balls doing what kids do. As soon as those kids saw me drive around the corner they would scatter like roaches when the light comes on. Leaving all their stuff in the street, including my son, who would stand there wondering why everyone just left. I would never say a word to these kids, I never had a chance to.
