Now that one over there, she’s more my type: little dangerous. See the
eyes, the mouth? Stormy — but that’s because there’s passion.
Don’t mind if i do. Thanks.
Logistics — operations, container shipping. No, you wouldn’t. You
really wouldn’t. It was just as boring in Vietnam. Different ports,
different stuff, same old shit. Been doing it too long to get out. I’m
supposed to keep a lid on costs. Sure. Goes without saying. But you tell
me if some pissant jiggering of operations is going to get you going in
the morning. Don’t think so. No.
Me? Because there’s always the chance that something will blow. You
wouldn’t believe the shit they put in these things: You have your
weapons, your fireworks, lithium cells, pistachios, nuclear waste,
ammonium nitrate — there’s a classic for you. Ever hear of Texas City?
Blew a couple planes out of the sky. You get containers of that stuff
and you’re checking on that ship every five minutes. They’d can me for
sure. Out in a blaze of glory.
