Two Wonderful People
November 28, 2020
One is pretty. The other is ugly. They are two sisters. One of them is Nancy. She is the pretty one. They are pretty. The other one is Susan. They got a suitcase and a hat with a badge. They are in Vietnam serving their country. She's got something on her hat. She has a coat with a star on it. Kathy said that they might be airline stewardesses.
She put her hand on the suitcase because it is too big. They are cute. They are twins. She is getting a message on a computer. They are going to the Marines in Kenosha, WI or Tamarac. They are unpacking a suitcase or making a bed.
They are thinking about how many years they have been in Vietnam. Maybe four. They fight for their country so that they don't get shot up. Peter said, "thank you."
They are police officers. They wear hats like that in London. They are not in a war. They say they suppose to open up.
She loves her sister. They are hoping for Christmas and Thanksgiving so they can be home with their families. They are smiling. They drink whiskey, juice, a soft drink or rose`. They go out and dance and sing.
They are closing the suitcase down. They are packing stuff by the bunk beds and they are happy. It's stuff for the rummage sale. Big old smiling faces!
Pat sticks up for the men, not the women. The women are not in a war.
They might play guitar. They drive home and goto the store to get groceries and frying pans and new shoes at Walmart. She's crying. hey will dance at the community project. She has a little purse.
