Nothing triggers a flashback like seeing the terrifying face of the Green Beans coffee barista. Remember that one time when the son-of-a-bitch put in whipped cream? We said no whip, goddamnit.
We were well-versed in the "Cha-Cha Slide" before heading to Iraq, but this salsa business is just too much.
This guy gave us cancer. He's like the Agent Orange of the Afghan war.
Oh God, can we get back to the war already? Your "motivational speeches" make us want to punch a third-country national.
Sometimes we wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, screaming, and we remember how we'll never be able to see those gorgeous size 36-24-36 pom-poms ever again.
