My fav cadet signed off today. I’ll miss him. He wouldn’t speak much or express any emotions. He’d work hard and do what you say. Trustworthy, sincere, quiet but tenacious. A bit secretive or shy. He’s from my town so there’s a chance I might meet him in future. But looking at how much we are alike (me from inside, although I speak a bit too much now to camouflage my shyness) I doubt that we will. So that’s what makes one adorable- being silent and agreeable? He’s only 19. I feel a generation of difference with him. I’m missing him already. His replacement is from my town too so at least maybe that is some solace.
