Update 3 From Afghanistan: We Needed Bigger Shirts

“Two outta three ain’t baaaaaaaad…” – Meatloaf

Good touch: Nothing got blown up.

Bad touch: We’re gonna need a bigger boat.  I mean “we’re gonna need bigger shirts”.

Update #3 has come in from the far away and dusty desert land…

If you missed the earlier updates, our first package arrived safely…but our shirt got blown up: http://www.ITinTheD.com/3614/okay-taliban-now-its-personal/

Package #2 arrived safely…and our shirt’s still alive and well: http://www.ITinTheD.com/3681/package-number-2/

Package #3 has arrived…and yeah, we should’ve gotten bigger shirts.

But still, Chief Crawford’s a good sport and took the time to let us know that everything got there in good shape and that it was all well received!
