Poker nights

Sometimes on the weekends it would get pretty boring in the barracks. So we would play poker. I don’t remember just how often we did this but that doesn’t really matter. The point is we found a way to exist thru another otherwise very long and boring weekend. We didn’t have much money so we bought White Ripple Wine. Then we would each buy a Teem softdrink and empty the bottle in the sink. We then poured the Ripple in the empty bottles. That way the Security watch, DNCO, and DO wouldn’t know we were drinking. As long as we played “penny” poker, we didn’t get in trouble for the card games. We hid our supply of Ripple in a footlocker. As the night wore on we would get a little boistorous, but never to the point of getting in trouble. Mostly we just joked in private about our subterfuge and had a good time. The duty knew we were up to something but she just couldn’t figure out what.
