124: Huh?

I received an email from M just before today’s pep assembly. It read:

“I turned in all of my late assignments and because of this, First Sergeant _____ is now allowing ____ and me to come home over the weekend.”

Huh?

Sitting on the gymnasium floor thoroughly perplexed, I searched for what I was feeling. My finding was that my confusion rested somewhere in between frazzled & concerned and excited & eager.

It was just 24 hours ago that I was openly appreciating the cut-and-dried rules that seemed so beautifully simple. And now I didn’t know how to feel. My thoughts were jumbled. On one hand…he hadn’t gotten in trouble because he used drugs or alcohol, but on the other hand… he still had broken a rule by skipping a class or two and having incomplete assignments.

***************************

Perhaps it was the spirited festivities happening all around me that brought me out of my furrowed brow mode. My excitement began to grow.

M is going to come home after all this weekend…and he’s bringing a fellow cadet.

Cross your fingers.
