Tough Exterior and a Soft Interior

My uncle is a pretty tough guy. He has been in the military for so many years that he’s been in longer than he’s been out. He’s gone through constant training and has even seen some combat over the years. You would think that something like back pain would be nothing for him, but it turned him into a big baby. He injured his back and had to go to a San Jose chiropractor, and the entire time he was crying about how bad the pain was for him. I had never seen him look so vulnerable.

If any of my uncle’s army buddies found out how he was crying about the back pain, they would probably never let him live it down. They usually pick on each other for various reasons, and something like this would last forever.
