warrior class and awkward social moments
I won't attempt to claim that I'm some sort of war hero. I know people who are, and I've been right next to extraordinary people when they have outperformed the rest of us. Sometimes that's just the way these things happen.
With all that being said, I have no real redeeming/outstanding qualities. I simply do my job the best that I know how and try to improve every day, even if it's just by the smallest margin. The problem is that I haven't been able to find the healthy balance between work and non-work topics. Being in the profession of arms, I get to play with guns, bullets, tanks, and all manner of war-like nouns. I don't actually feel this is a problem because I don't really have a social life, nor do I have the friends associated with the social life I don't have.
Then there's my wife. Young, attractive, smart, articulate, and blessed with all the social graces that I lack. SHE has friends. Her friends also have spouses. Those spouses and I rarely get along because the only significant activity in my life for the past decade has been war. This provides interesting dialogue shifts if the conversation starts somewhere between classical music and gardening. Most of the time I sit there and stare off into nowhere. Oh, I LOOK like a space-case but I'm actually thinking about guns, bullets, tanks, and/or other nouns of battle.
If anyone has any sorts of advice, I'm all for it. Please pm me.
