I had this brilliant (I thought so, at least) idea of having Archer be in the reserve military and he's working in the bookstore to make a living (my uncle just joined the reserves and he shared a lot of stories :) Then there's some sort of crisis situation in the Middle East and he has to go over there. It'll make for an interesting plot twist and we can have a really big 'happy tears' reunion between him and Sadie
At one point I was going to do that because my fdamily doesn't make enough money for college. I didn't want to fight in the military, I just wanted a college education and that felt like the only way. Well turns out I couldn't even if I wanted to because of my epilepsy. While I respect anyone who wants to join the military, I don't think college should be the reason some people join.
