Smarching

Me, spinning in formation

“1st Platoon!  Atten-SHUN!”

We all throw our shoulders back and stare straight ahead into nothing.  And we don’t move.  Leaders mill about, thinking about things, looking over their retirement accounts, playing Tetris on their phones. 

But we, the little people, just stand there.  Sweating.  Sweat runs in what feels like lightning patterns down my face.  Down my neck.  My back.  My rear…and down my legs.  I stand there taking a sweat-shower.  Spin me around fast enough and I’d fling so much water in every direction I think I could personally ease the drought problem in Texas.

“SMAAAARCH!”

Well, he actually say ‘march,’ but, really, you just can’t call it that.  No nuance.  We aren’t marching.  We’re walking around in 104 degree F heat, with sweat pouring from our bodies on par with your average Bangladeshi monsoon.  So we’re sweating.  With a little marching thrown in. 

It’s smarching.
