He's STILL mad about that eggnog.
I would be too under the same circumstances....especially if it was adult egg nog.
Little things like that mean the world to people who are a world away from home living day to day under bad conditions. I know that between September 1990 and June 1991 was the longest 10 months I can remember and it was the small things from home that got us through that deployment.
