Those Ducks Look Aggressive: A Look Inside Military Life

by Rachel Stephens Showman

There are hundreds of books discussing war, the politics behind battles, and the heroic actions of soldiers. Those books start at the end, the combat. Often times those stories are the last book civilians, parents, siblings, and significant others are able to read or want to read.

Behind the war, behind the soldier, behind the gates, lies a community with its own story. This is one of those stories. This is a chance for civilians to see inside a private population through a narrative that is hilarious, tragic, challenging, infuriating, slightly irreverent, and above all, honest.

“She informed me that anything handwritten would remain private, but anything typed – newspaper, cartoons, magazine articles – were to be read aloud by the receiving soldier. Each envelope garnered her ten push-ups, so I was to be concise in my messaging. Immediately I went shopping for romance novelsâ?¦. A couple of times a week, I dutifully scoured my stack of romance novels and
ripped out the pages I found particularly energetic. In individual envelopes, I sent off a couple of dozen sex scenes during the course of her basic training. During the months following her basic, I hid from her and her massive biceps.”

“I met spouses who introduced themselves as only â??the first sergeant’s wife’ or â??the captain’s wife’ or, better yet, didn’t even give introductions because I was just supposed to know who the hell she was married to. I introduce myself as Rachel Showman, or more often just Rae, because that’s who I am. For once I would like to go to a military function and not have to say, â??I don’t give a shit what your husband’s rank is. What’s your name?'”

“It took me ten years to figure out that I am the weird cousin who means well but talks too loudly and tells inappropriate storiesâ?¦. These soldiers are mine to protect and support. They are kin, and I will love them even when, sometimes, I dislike them. They are my family, albeit a dysfunctional, maladjusted, exasperating, admirable, extraordinary family. And who doesn’t secretly love the weird cousin?”

DIVORCE: living a life in quiet desperation

by veronika zyss

Imagine a successful surgeon, married thirty plus years, now in his sixties, finding out at a dinner party his wife is divorcing him as he was never man enough for her. How does he feel? How can he respond to a robbed life, a false life, a stolen life?

At a time when he is ready to retire to live the life he dreamt of, he faces a new reality; one of financial destitution, or a life of quiet discontentment.

Which life would you choose? Do personal happiness and fulfillment trump finances? Do you start over? How? Where do you even begin?

A MUST READ for anyone contemplating divorce.

Ms Zyss is the author of two books, DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE, A JOURNEY THROUGH END STAGE DEMENTIA and END GAME, both narrating life-changing difficult topics. This narrative evolved as a result of listening to friends, who in their golden years, found themselves alone and compromised both emotionally as well as financially.

Ms Zyss began her writing career just before her 58th birthday, after a family tragedy and inspired by her late husband. Writing proved to be a therapeutic outlet. She is currently busy working on NINE MONTHS AT THE SINGAPORE HILTON, chronicling her time in Singapore during the Trump-Kim Summit in 2018.

Hypocrisy is in the air

by Savneet Singh

Science calls us Homo-sapiens-sapiens, and this is done to celebrate the â??super intellect’ of modern-day humans. But the question is: do we justify being worthy of this nomenclature?

We talk about equality of the sexes but we hardly talk about violence against men.
Talking about sex is a taboo, yet we are the second most populous country in the world.

We cry our voices out against corruption but we bribe a policeman to escape the fine after jumping a traffic light. Wrongdoing is a crime when pulled off by others, but if committed by one’s own flesh and blood, it’s just an unfortunate mistake.

We raise a hue and cry about inflation only while buying tomatoes and onions, but we jovially spend more than Rs 200 crores in a week on a Bollywood flick.

…and the list of our ironical adventures is quite drawn out.

Shouldn’t we be better professed as homo-hypocriticals? Don’t you think we are just society with loads of double standards?

Read author’s anecdotal narratives, which combine tragedy and humour to illustrate that modern-day humans’ route to virtue is paved with pebbles of hypocrisy.

But they have to go, if Tired Oaks is ever to be made whole again. That is why, driven by a grudge over a parking space, Mike McKillican is leading a movement to take his town backâ??and he aims to bring his less-than-righteous indignation all the way to the Mayor’s office at City Hall.

L’ho fatto per divertimento (Italian Edition)

by Antonio Fanelli

Un hacker, Lulz, crea un finto sito di astrologia per spiare Giulia, catturandone così la confidenza. Ã? un lavoro “sporco”, commissionato dal ragazzo di Giulia, ma diventa ben presto per Lulz un’intrusione, anche sentimentale, così estrema, da spingerlo a provocare i comportamenti della ragazza.

Couples Game Night In: Book 8: Going Out While Staying In

by Kelly M

This is the eighth book in a ten book series that does not need to be read in any particular order. Each book is a collection of trivia, quizzes, and activities for a couple staying in for the night who still want to have their own party.

My husband and I used to spend time trying to find Trivia questions and reading the questions from different Trivia Games to each other. We’d come up with little side bets and do the whole thing with a glass of wine or a beer and some shots. It’s a fun time but kind of a pain finding all the questions and quizzes and all that. We put all that together into these books including the side bets to hopefully give you and yours an entertaining evening experience!

Staying in? Try this book for the night and see if you like it! Guaranteed you’ll have fun if you loosen up and enjoy!
