WHAAAAAAT THATS SO COOL HOW DOES HE DO THAT! ITS JUST A BUG BUT IT LIGHTS UP
lol it had never even occurred to my that there were parts of this planet where lightning bugs are not indigenous
I AM SO JEALOUS I WANT TINY LITTLE BUG LANTERNS
the fact that people haven’t experienced fireflies/lightning bugs… it just makes me sad, they were such a part of my childhood in Ohio. Also, ‘bug lanterns’ is maybe the cutest thing i’ve ever heard it my life.
I have posted the syllabus—it is under…syllabus lol”

This post was really soothing. And then the last picture happened.
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
