Just gotta re-post this here, I think I posted it in "boardies as kids"
For you Jules!~
I smell like Army Surplus.
Y'know that Salty aroma? that analine Dye smell? Giant Vats cooking mass quantities of herringbone tweed and Nylon/hemp Batches of fabric used to make combat jackets and pants.
The military "air of familiarity" when you walk into a surplus store, I think it's because even my pillowcase and bedsheets are all G.I. Issue.
I Bleed O.D. Green.
My mom Always thought I was a re-incarnation of a Bomber crewman.
My highschool nickname was Capn' Melvin!!!
And the same bunch of guys STILL address me as Melvin!
