Me and my (little) PTSD

Last night, about 11 PM. Kids asleep. My wife and I had just finished watching an episode of Orange is the New Black (great show btw). Turned in for the night, lights out. Quiet. … THUD. A distant but very distinct THUD. “Did you hear that?” my wife asked. My eyes were closed. “yes, I heard that. maybe an interception.” I lied. Quiet…. . THUD. THUD. THUD. every cell in my body knew exactly what we heard. In my mind I went back to summer 2006.

Note: Uri was our guide in Israel, and a better one you will not find.
