when using my nose hair trimmer just now.  Should I change my pronoun or something?

    I still remember the first time I saw it and the number of old vets who got up and left after the opening scene. I could not even talk to my wife about it when I got home. I started tearing up trying to explain it.

    I was OK until the medic got shot and then died.

    Shakespeare in Love beat out Saving private Ryan for the Oscar that year. Spielberg did win best director. The all star cast of that movie was amazing. Me and my son probably watch it 3-4 times a year, along with Full Metal Jacket

    When my dad died last August, he was delirious, some of his last coherent statements were asking fellow GIs if they were alright and please keep your head down.

    Some years ago which seems in a different life time I was a "counselor" for a funeral home and had to meet with a WWII vet and his wife. She kept complaining to me that her husband (who was coming to the end) that he kept reliving his time in WWII, which she said it was the first time he ever did that in their 60+ year marriage.

    It’s amazing how the brain reacts to things that were important events in one’s life. 

    I may fake it and beg my wife to stop beating me.
