We were at a World War II reenactment fair when my beautiful boy noticed someone carrying around an Air Force backpack. Oh how he wanted that backpack! To earn one though, a person had to do 20 pull-up's/chin-up's. But, said the recruiter in charge, it was his last backpack so the fee was now 30 pull-up's/chin-up's. We all stared and made grumpy faces, and the recruiter said, "Okay, 25."
So Checkered, newly thin and always protective of our sometimes fragile boy, began.
1,2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10, 11, 12.. 13... 14....15. That was it. There was a caveat though: Checkered had done a set of 10 prior to the set of 15. Doesn't that equal 25?
According to the recruiter: no.
Stinky Air Force!
