Boss: You're through with all your major medical stuff, right?

Me: I hope so.

Boss: So it would be possible for you to travel and you've got a passport, right?

Me: Yeah.

Boss: When does it expire.

Me: Umm... sometime in 2008. I'll have to look when I get home.

Boss: No, that's good. As long as it doesn't expire before the end of next year.

Me: Is there something I should know?

Boss: Yes, but I can't tell you yet because nothing has been decided.

Angola is nice this time of year. I know we have one installed system there and could probably find another customer if we tried. I'll even train you on how to do the installations.

Just try to ignore the fact that they have more landmines than people in the country [Eek!]

So my HS chemistry teacher was in the Navy (Air if you must know). He told us once that when you join the Navy they tell you you're going to see the world, but they don't tell you that 75% of the world is water.

So they're being paroled after only 30 days? [Eek!]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
