First Day of Camp

June 18, 2007

This will be a short one because I’m pretty wiped, but I wanted to fill everyone in on my first day of camp.

I lucked out with a great group of 9-11 year olds. My “Camp Name” is Mr. Flintstone, but they insist on calling me Mr. Fruitcake. One kid loves to fart and loves his own scent even more. We’ve developed some etiquette rules, so that he at least excuses himself before he singes our nose hair. I forgot how funny farting is when you’re younger. It’s just something you avoid talking about when you’re older, but these kids take pride in their farts.

During closing, which is a short big-group session, one of my campers pulled on my hand and said… “Mr. Flintstone, I did something bad.” I turned and said, “Did you toot?” Her face said it all. She had a giant shit-eating grin, much like my own, and she just nodded proudly. How did I know, you ask? Because it smelled like rotten cabbage all around me, and I knew it wasn’t me.

These kids have a lot of energy. They were running circles around some counselors, but I managed to last the whole day (over 9 hours). I’m definitely pooped now after working out and going out to dinner, but it was well worth it. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow.

And now… another random drunken Marine quote:

(To his friend at a table across the restaurant): “Hey faggot. Yeah you… eating the pizza. You should have played beer pong on the beach with me. Instead, I got really drunk… pussy. Fuck you dickhole.”

I really liked the combination of “fuck” and “dickhole.”

Adios amigos… tengo que relajarme antes el largo dia que viene.
