Eh, I'm not usually so much into the whole writing...thing, but James thinks it would be good for me. Today, we were talkin to our partner system when Scout suddenly up an says he misses his mum, an I got a bunch of memories about RED Team's Scout's mum and me own parents.
I miss my parents too, but it's not like they cared for me much. Ah, I shouldn't say that. They loved me I'm sure. They just didn't especially agree with my, eh, life choices. I could see where they'd get that, since it was my job to go shoot people.
Anyway, Scout's mum was almost like a replacement mum for all of us while we were on the job. She sent us cookies and muffins and other food that we likely wouldn't otherwise get, and I thank God for that. An when things had died down a bit, sometimes she'd come and cook for us. Engie, Spy, Scout and Pyro helped out the most. Soldier too, if she could flatter the man enough. Of course, Demoman wasn't allowed to help. But can you blame the woman? He's a one-eyed drunk, and he's caused more than a couple fires in the kitchen. Oh, an' durin the winter, she'd send us these really embarrassin' mittens with our names embroidered on them. We always complained when we got 'em, but I'd be hard pressed to say they weren't useful in the cold winter days when we don't have much in the way of winter clothing.
Yeah, anyway the gist of this is there's a lot of reminiscing goin on lately an I needed somewhere to put it. So there you have it.
