The First Sergeant's Fifi

Volume 28, Issue 4


The first sergeant was trudging along in the rear before we were half way there

THE First Sergeant had told me that I could not have the weekend off right after I had won $2000 from him in a strictly friendly game of poker in New Zealand. He had drug $100 light on the last pot and I had not got my money yet, which I told the First Sergeant.

"First Sergeant," I said, "if I have to stay in this weekend I will not have anything to do except count my money. In which case I would like to have the $100 you owe me because every $100 counts."
