Here's more proof that HF's mind is in another place. This is a conversation we had before he left to go to class.
Me: I wish that it was only the academy that you had to go to. Not work also. I can't wait until you are just working and then I can't wait until you have a 2 week vacation. . .
HF: It's called paid administration leave because I shot someone.
Me: Okay. . . actually I was thinking that it would just be like a normal paid vacation and not a vacation because you shot someone. Hey! I think I'm gonna go shoot someone 'cause I could really use a vacation about now. Like that's the only time you get work off.
I wonder if paid administration leave is something they discussed the day before in the academy.
Vacation will have to wait. HF will be starting his FTOing on the 24th of April. He graduates on May 8th. Just 34 more days! He is being fitted for his body armor and uniforms right now as we speak. He's excited. He left grinning from ear to ear.
