The Old Masters – re-interpreted 35

Major Problem: “Right men, this is no simple mission. We’ve got to defeat the enemy in a single movement this week.”

Private Parts: “Ooo this is sooo exciting. How’re we going to do that then?”

Major Problem: “We are going to surprise him from behind and dominate the area asap.”

Private Parts: “Sounds like fifty shades of camo, but pardon me sir I don’t think surprise will be the key element here.”

Major Problem: “Why not Private?”

Privat Parts: “Well, Major, with some of the Old Masters; an approach from the rear will  not so much come as a surprise but an answer to prayer; and domination will just be the cherry on the top.”

Major Problem: “Damn and blast these painters. A conventional pincer movement it is then. “

Private Parts: “Couldn’t have said it better myself sir.”

Major Problem: “Yes, well… I’m going in Private. Cover me.”

Private Parts: “Ooo I thought you’d never ask.”

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
