My first waking moments of this 日 were punctuated 由 the lethargic rhythmic sounds of high powered fighter aircraft landing on the deck above me. I stood up and shook myself, waking myself up in the process. I glanced over at my big brotha Colby, who was still conked out in his bunk. We were in his quarters aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, a Nimitz class aircraft carrier of the US Navy. I'd come aboard ship last night really late in an F-14 owned 由 Colby, only to have dinner, which was delicious, btw, and be launched back into the sky.
