"President Obama?" I'm SSgt Perry Thomason. I'm here to bring you home."
I replied, "Well SSgt, we are going for fritters- so I hope by home you meant to say Tel Aviv."
He looked at me funny and said, "With respect sir, that would cause us to walk all the way through Iran- you were heading away from Tel Aviv. But, that’s good, because we have the entire 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion is looking for you.- and you are headed right for them"
That's when Geithner chimed in- "Does the 2nd MSOB have Potato fritters?"
The SSgt looked confused- these army guys are kind of simple sometimes. "No, we are here to bring you to safety." he said- "Look, you guys need to ride my camel-"
Geithner broke in with "Does that mean what I think it means?"
The SSgt Thomason was adamant that it did not.
Any how, the SSgt brought us presents- local clothing to wear. I think this will be fun.
