– [Narrator] My father wanted me to do something with my life. I guess I joined the army because of him, although I wasn’t really in the mood to go to Afghanistan. And that’s Pat. You better not call him a fag. Pat and I had been across the river neighbors for what seems like forever. Pat preferred playing with gas than playing with my toys. Okay, let’s say he’s a sexually frustrated pyromaniac. The thing was, he always pushed everything too hard, to be like one of the boys. And that’s how Pat got suspended from his team back then. I was home on leave and I pushed him to hang out together. We’d been out in the world, away from our old ways of being easy with each other, so we hung out at my parent’s yard. I told him about my nightmares, the typical ones before a mission. Explosion, my potential death and the visions that follow. I asked him if he was sad that I’d soon be sent away. He answered.
– You’re fucked up.
– It hurt me because it’s true. I am fucked up. There was a time when we used to train together. He was the only one able to put up with me. I assume I must have been a pain to be with, you know, with my ups and downs. I was scared to die in Afghanistan, so I asked Pat to drive over my leg. It needed to pass for an accident. At the very moment I thought he was gonna do it, he looks at me and says.
– I’m leaving.
– [Narrator] God knows I’m 100% straight, but maybe it would’ve been easier to be like Pat. Maybe it would’ve been simpler. My dream was to find a wife, have a home full of kids. I saw myself taking over my parents’ house one day, when they took off to go traveling the world.
