Hugs and Kisses

It was "tomorrow" when Daniel called, 1am Baghdad time. He sends thanks to G/G Ohlsen for the phone time :). He had just returned from a 24 hour patrol, one of those where you're so tired you can't sleep.
His story for today was a young girl sitting on the roof of her home close to where he was also roof bound, keeping a sharp eye out for "issues." The girl started waving and blowing him kisses. This went on for about 20 minutes until her mother or another adult female came onto the roof, slapped her face and dragged her inside.

I said that was sad she reacted in such a harsh manner, but Daniel seemed to think the whole thing was rather funny. I suppose it is one of those stories we'll have to flesh out when we have time to sit down far away from sandy streets which are light years from Seattle reality.
