Ok, I sent my Friday email to her:
Hi, how has your week been? I've been really busy dealing with all the new people coming in, mostly Australians and Dutch officers. I ran into a Portuguese captain at Camp Eggers on Tuesday and tried to talk to him in Portuguese, he applauded my efforts and said I was the first non-Portuguese person in Afghanistan to try speaking Portuguese with him. Then yesterday in the SIPR room I somehow managed to touch the server rack, which is ungrounded, and the metal security door simultaneously. So I became the ground for the rack, and caught a couple thousand volts of electricity. No one else was in the SIPR room to hear the string of profanity that resulted. I haven't been electrocuted in like 10 years, I think I can go another 10 years without it now. It's Friday here, my day off, so I slept in and just ate lunch, and I'm about to go to the gym. Apparently it's the rainy season here, and it's been raining a lot. It's nice since it clears the air of pollution, and makes all the plants grow. Speaking of which, I thought it'd be nice for me to send you some flowers, all the way from Afghanistan. wink Hope you have a good weekend.


Attached a couple pictures of the roses, which came out great btw.
