Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

I enjoyed the film “Forrest Gump” immensely, but there’s one scene that struck a jarring note based on my military experience in the 1st of the 22nd in Vietnam. It’s where Tom Hanks says that “My mother told me that life is like a box of chocolates.”

Any grunt knows that life is more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today, might burn your butt tomorrow!
