In the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Ten, there came to be an edict in the land of the Army. They did command that my Army Man should go forth unto the land of Afghanistan. The Army man did not murmur or cry, Tis a hard thing you have asked of me. He simply prepared whatever was needful for his journey.
And he said unto me…”Wife take this smart phone. And use it unto your own good. For it shall not work in the land of sand. So tis needful that I pass it down unto you.” And the wife agreed to watch over the smart phone along with their two small offspring.
And so it came to pass that the Army Man did make his journey. He did leave behind many precious things. And he did command his wife to watch over them all.
But in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and eleven, on the 14th day of February, there came to be call for mourning. A great cry went up from the wife. For she had dropped the smart phone and shattered the touchscreen.
And so she called forth unto her husband. She was full of sorrow. She did cry for forgiveness as she confessed her error. (And also thanked her husband for the flowers and chocolates.)
And the Army Man laughed with great mirth and said unto her….. “Would I be a bad husband if I said that I knew you would demolish it before my deployment was up?”
