You: it was so horrible
Stranger: sounds like it
You: still haunts me to this day.
You: ...seems like the only way a man can feel at peace these days is by chattin' it up with a cyber-stranger, you know?
Stranger: mhm
You: little kid body parts raining down on me and the boys. So fucked up.

You: don't study American History, unless you want to know about all the awful things me and my boys had to go through
You: shit, I couldn't even talk to my wife about it, guess that might've had something to do with the divorce
You: but somehow, for some reason, god knows why, I feel comfortable talking with you.
Stranger: thanks its always good to talk to somebody
You: maybe you could write my life story and become a famous author.
Stranger: maybe
You: I can use more flourishing words to dress it up if it would sound better on the printed page that way.
Stranger: yeah
You: but the orphan kid parts, man. There was no way to tell which parts went with which. That's messy, but what do you expect with 500 lbs of C4.
You: we shoveled 'em into the feed troughs 30 clicks away in a pig pen.
You: a big pig pen.
You: Those hogs took to 'em like white on rice.
You: gobbled up ever single last one of those kid parts.
You: Are you writing this down?
Stranger: yea
You: cool,
You: I think I have some good names for the book.
You: "FEVER of the JUNGLE"
You: what do you think?
Stranger: thats a really good name
You: cool, so we have my blown up orphan story, that's a good one and should take up a lot of pages.
Stranger: true
You: I have a pretty horrible one about a rice paddy gangbang.
Stranger: ok
You: one where me and the boys, we put a brick of C4 in the rectum of a water buffalo.
