For My Friends in Iraq

Via one of those friends...

You have been in Iraq too long when:

    You say, "It feels cooler today," only to find out that the temperature is 105
    You kick aside the M-16 on the floor, without a second thought, when you sit down to eat in the Dining Facility
    A Glock 9mm on a lady's hip is considered sexy [I know, I know... for some of you that's SOP.]
    "Scoring" means you acquired a new weapon! [Again, that's different how?]
    Driving on the sidewalk is normal
    Driving on the wrong side of a divided four-lane street is normal
    You get upset that you don't get C-130 frequent flyer miles
    Your carry-on luggage includes body armour and a helmet
    You start believing deodorant should be a personal choice
    You get excited at the presence of clouds
    The quality of the plastic utensils becomes a hot dinner topic
    The color white is no longer an option
    You can recognize 12 different camouflage patterns
    Stars & Stripes seems to be a liberal newspaper
More from a great list here.
