About my leave form...

Despite the fact that I had to participate in that most dreadful of military traditions this weekend--mandatory fun--I still found some time to finish a chapter or two in Chandler's book about Napoleon.

As it winds out, I discovered a fun fact about Le Petit Corporal. Did you know that during his first six years of service in the French Army, he spent a grand total of thirty-two months on leave?

Seriously, I am in the wrong Army.
