Down in the Bunker, life goes on
But we are spending more and more time down there. And some of you asked what it's like, and whats going on. Well this is from the last time: We are down there and after ten minutes another siren hits, so this means that we'll spend at least 25 minutes down there. The radio puts on a song to pass the time, it's "I want to be loved by you", Marilyn Monroe singing circa 1959 from a wonderful movie called "some like it hot".
Anyway, the scene was to me at least, surreal. Just imagine: "I wanna be loved by you, just you", somewhere three dozen miles away two rockets are inbound, "And nobody else but you", in your minds eye your flying behind them, seeing the green valleys of south Lebanon below you, "I wanna be loved by you, alone!", your passing over Israeli troops now, seeing them building up in a few locations, "Boop-boop-de-boop!", you for a second glimpse a dozen special op soldiers moving bend over on the ground unaware that behind the next hill there are three Hezbollah terrorists, but your not going to see the outcome of that because your moving on, "I wanna be kissed by you, just you", your over the border now passing over Israeli towns, "Nobody else but you", you notice a mushroom cloud here and there from where other rockets hit, "I wanna be kissed by you, alone!", in the distance you hear the sirens winding down, "I couldn't aspire", the rocket is half way there and runs out of fuel, "To anything higher", it's silent now, you hear nothing but keep on flying, "Than, to feel the desire", down in the bunker people listening to the song smile, it's not so bad we'll pull thru, "To make you my own!", the rocket slows and it's arch points downwards, then you start to hear a whistle, theres Haifa now you can see the bay and the sunlight reflecting from the sea, "Ba-dum-ba-dum-ba-doodly-dum-boo", darkness.
That's how long it takes. Down in the bunker people are dancing a little bit to the song, the radio announcer comes on: "two rockets fell in open spaces, no casualties, we'll play a song or two more and then hopefully release you. Stay safe."
And that... is that.
