We all know what the doctors say. But now listen to our soldiers-in-training. My son-in-law at ARMY boot camp has been put under a new “smoking” policy. According to the drill sergeant, whoever receives more than five letters in one day gets SMOKED. My boy has explained what he means by his “smoking” sessions:
Unlucky as it is for him, it DOES NOT involve TOBACCO products. What it does involve is between 200-400 Overhead Arm Claps (jumping jacks to us non-military types).
Then clap your hands over your head
400 Times!!! Ouch!!
Then back to starting position.
And that’s just the beginning – then they do Flutter Kicks. (Apparently Flutter Kicks suck, but I’ve been told you feel really good about yourself afterwards – GO FIGURE!)
You lie down flat on your back like this
Then you have to raise your feet off the ground six inches and hold the position, with legs completely straight, like this
THEN you start kicking your legs up and down (fluttering like a beautiful butterfly), counting 1,2,3; ONE, 2, 3; 1, TWO, 3; etc., all the way up to 100 – OUCH Again!!
Then after those, they do more push-ups, and jumping jacks – 00ps – I mean OVERHEAD ARM CLAPS.
And it wore him out just writing about it; and I gotta tell ya – it wore me out just blogging about it.
That’s ARMY STRONG!! Navy – What’s your smoking policy???
THE NEW SMOKING POLICY – – – – – GOTTA LOVE IT!!
PS – I think I’d better cut back on the letters.
