After trying several times to locate a vein in my left arm, the technician applied a Band-Aid, and then inserted a needle into my right arm, drawing blood this time, and then put a Band-Aid on that arm as well.
One day, at the dry-cleaning shop of a local Air Force Base, I overheard a young airman describe in great detail how he wanted his uniform cleaned and pressed.
When he finished, the counter clerk asked, “Are you getting an award, or do you have an important military function to attend?”
“Nothing like that,” the airman said. “I’m going home on leave, and my little brother is taking me to his second-grade class for show-and-tell.”
