This week I'm reading "The Junior Officer's Reading Club" by Patrick Hennessey. Stay tuned for a review sometime next week (I hope - this week is extremely busy).
I know I"m supposed to open to a random page, but I don't like the idea of opening to a page past the point I've reached in the book, so I'll open it to the page I'm on. Here, the author is describing events of a 4 day field training exercise during the British Army Officer's basic training camp:
"Friendships were forged like lightning in that adversity.... My basher-buddy Bowmont and I had been engaged in a miserable discussion which had moved depressingly from what we were doing one month before (he - beach in Brazil, I - lounging in Paris) to what would induce us to come out from under our poncho (apparently not even Elle Macpherson offering a blozzer 20 metres away), but now, cracked by the fatigue and the absurdity of it all, we just broke down in hysterics..."
I'm such a nerd that I had to look up the word blozzer. Also, he spelled meters wrong. :)
