The Sketch of Sam Monroe – Chapter 5.7 – Basic 2.0

Image result for latrine

I awoke to the sound of drops on fabric. Groggy, exhausted, and unbearably hot I cursed the dawn.

Despite the planned expedition’s manifest including portable climate control, we would suffer a month of conditioning.

‘We need conditioning alright…air conditioning.’ I mused as the Jeep’s side mirror revealed my ruddy face.

My trek to the latrine was abrupted by a heavy accent.

“You did no check your boots.”

‘O Christ..’ It was Lobo.

He was wearing combat boots, cargo pants, a t-shirt, and a paddy hat. How anyone could stomach a hat, much less a woolen one, was beyond me.

“You will be killed…sick…before we start, this way…”

“Yeah, yeah…” I muttered drowsily.

His expression informed me that he didn’t like that answer.

“Look, Senhor Lobo I’m not a civ, I know this…I understand this.”

“You understand nothing.”

I really had to piss.

“I think the camp is wet enough without my fertilizing it.” I turned to go on my merry way. But I was stopped by a vicelike grip.

The sound of the rain, the feel of it, wasn’t helping the matter. A mad thought flashed through my mind as abruptly as the local lightning.

‘I’m going to kill this son of a bitch.’

The guy was bigger than the spook that had broken into the lodge. I’m a strong man and the position of Lobo and his hand would make it easy to slam him over my hip. But why alienate an ally? Why risk injury?

I relaxed.

“Look, I’ve already seen my share of drill sergeants. Lemee piss and then you can bitch me out…ok?”

He released me and I nearly jogged to the latrine. I was nauseous from my over occupied bladder.

‘This shit is bad enough at nineteen…at nearly thirty…unbearable…” I ruminated after relief.

When I returned he instructed me to get back in the tent, get out, and check my boots.

‘Yep..basic 2.0.’
