Response to And so the adventure begins...
Among the battery of shots we were given at MCRD PI, the last one--administered in the buttock or hip, if my memory serves rightly--had all of us hating life even more so that day. Don't know what it was or what it was for, but on taking the first step after the injection, it felt like someone had connected with a roundhouse swing with a sledgehammer to the thigh. And every step produced another sledgehammer blow. Of course they had seen fit to administer the shots on the top floor of the building, and we had to double-time it down the stairs after getting our shots.
At least it took our minds off the skeeter and sand flea bites for a while...
