So, the temps outside here plummeted. Well, for here, it’s cold. And it’s raining. And that means drastic measures must be taken.
There are few pleasures greater than a good cup of cocoa on a cold night. Take a pack of MRE instant cocoa, mix with one or two sugar packets, one packet of MRE instant coffee and maybe a non-dairy creamer packet. Share with your battle buddy and spend the cup discussing how dumb your squad leader/platoon leader/company commander is and what a jerk your First Sergeant is.
My other favorite was the really crappy instant chicken noodle soup the cooks would occasionally send up for midnight rations.
And yes, as I write this, my footsies are wrapped in my poncho liner.
