Every time I've thought about my situation lately, I've always done one thing without fail. I became pissed off. That alone doesn't do anything, and moping certainly doesn't do anything. So I figured I'd seek the wisdom of a true badass.
What would John Wayne do?
The answer? Well, he'd probably slap the one reprimanding him and demand they focus on the mission. Probably not the best idea. But a better idea surfaces as a result: Take it like a freaking man and learn from it. I screwed up, but the game isn't over yet. Would Ditka complain? No, he may tackle the MPs and use their vehicle as the getaway car and find a REAL party, but he certainly wouldn't feel sorry for himself. Chuck Norris...would probably stroke his beard and then roundhouse kick anyone in his vicinity, while doing a commercial for the Total Gym. But he'd be damned if he'd shed a tear.
I'm relieved. For a minute there, I forgot that I am truly and inarguably awesome.
