(Chris Kyle: The American Sniper was gunned down at a shooting range.)
Yesterday, I hiked ten miles through the rice paddies. I had a good time. I enjoy exercise. It helps cut my stress level. Poor old Smith is an anxious sensitive boy. I worry constantly. My demons have demons.
I took the family to church. Driving on the peninsula is ridiculous. I said the f-word over and over again. Koreans must not be allowed to purchase cars. Instead, each family should be issued a horse and buggy. So let it be written, so let it be done.
The sermon was outstanding. We focused on Mark 16. My pastor is a card-carrying member of the Ivy League Mafia. He graduated from Yale. But I don't hold his education against him. I'm marvelous that way.
We went to McDonald's for dinner. I had a Quarterpounder with French fries while the Children of the Rice enjoyed McNuggets. The Dragon Lady didn't eat. She doesn't like fast food.
I was mean to my eldest son Jim. I want my children to excel in math and science. I also want them fluent in two languages. Jim speaks Korean well. But his writing and reading skills are weak.
I said, "That's OK, son. Not everyone's cut out for college. There's a great future for you in the military."
He said, "You suck."
Jim's right. I do suck. I certainly don't want to be one of those fathers who tortures his children. But I expect results. Plain and simple.
We returned to our Soviet-style concrete tenement. I couldn't find a parking spot. So I had to drive to the second floor of the underground garage.
I watched a Die Hard marathon on the Super Action Channel. What great movies. Bruce Willis is an entertaining guy.
I paid homage to the Christ God. I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees. I believe in the good news of the resurrection. Jesus defeated death and sin.
I went to bed at 9 p.m. I had a nightmare. I screamed several times in my sleep. I woke up at 5 a.m.
I drank coffee and read the paper. Six U.S. soldiers were arrested for sexually harassing a 20-year-old woman on the subway. Those guys are going to get burned. Koreans hate Americans. And they have a lot of power under the current SOFA agreement. Good luck getting a fair trial.
I turned on Fox News. Chris Kyle, a talented sniper, was a member of the Navy Seals. He had 150 confirmed kills. That's a lot of blood. He was also famous for supposedly kicking Jesse Ventura's ass. Klye was murdered at a shooting range by a Marine with PTSD. Even tough guys don't last forever.
It's currently 7:30 p.m. I'll try to watch the Super Bowl. Go Ravens.
Anyway, talk to you later. God bless.
