Monday night at the Community outreach after dinner service three Veterans of the Wars
aged 69,71,80 talked about their service and the 71 year old talked about how he was assistant to the chaplain but was let go cause he was "smoking like a chimney drinking like a fish and carousing around" at 26 years of age he quit cause the doctor told him he would die in 6 months if he dont stop
if these men smoked cigars and drank from brandy sifters i would have swore i was in a billiard room at some private exclusive old mens club
# smoking jackets and a fire place with silent ladies massaging their feet with ear plugs
after a few stories of hilarity he mentioned again his "carousing" with EXTRA EXTRA laughs and i didnt think any thing of it then he told me what he meant by carousing - uhh ..having sex with all kinds of women!
alot of ladies
lucky i didnt get a visual
the other two men laughed and gave each other knowing looks
oh to be young again!
with no restraint
and pretty ladies all around
lust and fornicating
and fathering babies in other countries that they knew nothing about
and illegal abortions that had to be performed cause soldiers were so virile it didnt matter if the women were ripe for fertilization
also some woman got carried away with these handsome soldiers and hated themselves in the morning for giving in or even possibly date rape that wasnt acknowledged back then by authority and the countless victims
it was just carousing
and the men bonded at the table
boys will be boys
my gay friend and i didnt try to compare our stories when we were "carousing"
it would have been seen as a sin by them
# i love these dear men and i assure you it was not a temptation to do such a thing
its a propriety/gentlemen/Christian thang
