“More PT, drill sergeant, more PT,” we army grunts, going through basic training, yelled in unison.
“Assume the prone position and give me fifty,” the drill sergeant barked. I groaned. I knew I’d be hard pressed to give him fifty perfect push-ups. My drill sergeant, who was reminiscent of my high school football coach, would not compromise. Fifty perfect push-ups was what was demanded and fifty push-ups was what I would try to deliver.
Fortunately, Mother Nature came to my rescue when the bright sunshine suddenly gave way to a severe thunderstorm. The drill sergeant had no choice but to dismiss us back to the barracks. Gotta love Mother Nature.
