So every now and then I read a post from a fellow Mil supporter - mentioning what goodies they've sent off. The more unusual / fascinating objects then stick in my mind as "ooh I'd love to send that to X downrange" and get added to the "when I can afford / when he/she needs it" list that stores itself in the recesses of my brain.
And when I do manage to ship an item on "THE LIST" off to an adopted soldier, I mentally apply one of those hideously cheerfully coloured bingo markers and mark it as achieved.
Occasionally in the dead of night the neighbours may hear a muffled BINGO!
Latest item to go (giving me Legs-eleven) was a Spork. Sadly in a dull metallic titanium colour as Amazon.com has issues with sending the multi-coloured strengthened plastic ones Downrange.
Dull, boring but extremely useful (and hopefully tough enough to deal with MRE's) and apparently exactly what my Soldier needs in their life.
So anyone else have weird gift-giving rituals - or am I alone (yet again) in my oddities?
