This week’s Illustration Friday challenge word is “jump”.
Two soldiers who were in boot camp together meet out on maneuvers.
“Hey, I heard you joined the paratrooper division.,” the first recruit says, “Pretty impressive.”
“Yeah.” answers his colleague, “Last week we went up for our first jump.”
“Great! So, how did that go?”
“Well, they take us up and I was the last one in a group of about twenty-five guys. So, one by one, the other guys are all jumping out of the plane and I’m getting real nervous and scared. With each guy that jumps, I’m getting more and more scared. So, they’re all gone and my turn comes up next and I can’t do it. I just can’t bring myself to jump. I say to the sergeant ‘I can’t jump, sir, I just can’t.’ and he says, ‘Get going, soldier! Jump outta this plane!’ and I tell him, ‘I can’t do it.’ He yells, ‘Soldier! If you don’t jump outta this plane right now, I’m gonna fuck you right up the ass!'”
“Wow!,” the first soldier says, “Did you jump?”
“A little at first.”
