Then I woke up in a hospital really out of whack had facial hair was wearing a diaper with a catheter in my penis couldn’t understand what was going on ! Made it to a telephone call my house and the phone had been disconnected ! ? Call my mother-in-law’s house and my wife answered that’s where the Story really begins ! My.

The military gave me 30 days to get my home life together before I went back to active duty, in that time I can’t remember how many days it was before my wife explain why there was so much tension in the household it was because there was a passenger in the car with me and the passenger was a female !

    There is a lot of life lying beneath this stream-of-consciousness story, apparently including not one but two stories about temptation—your own and your wife’s! I can see how these events might haunt you, and I’m glad you made it through them.

    Do you use voice recognition software to write your stories?
