dominant, carpet, magazine, duster, finicky, display
carbine, boots, tactical, determination, filthy and disgusing
or you can use the expression
Let's take a shot at it, shall we?
I do admire my sons determination to complete his basic training. I know he absolutely hates boots, (I mean who doesn't right?) says they don't 'go' with anything. Yet, he stands tall and proud, shoulders his carbine, and takes part in the tactical manoeuvres even though it's a filthy and disgusting muddy mess he has to scramble through. He's my brave little soldier. Here at home he was always so finicky about the house; plying his duster every day, tidying his display of crystal figurines, straightening the magazine rack, vacuuming the carpet in his room. I don't know how he is standing the dreadful conditions he finds himself in.
Greg wiped a perspiring brow and grinned at his drill Sargent. That maniacal megalomaniac of a domineering mother of his made sarge look like the tooth fairy in comparison. He was enjoying every moment of being a 'regular guy' getting dirty and sweaty, flopping on his bunk with his boots on...it was wonderful. Ma may not realise it but her little boy was planning on being a career soldier. Already he was marked as officer material. He could hardly wait to be 'large and in charge'. He'd had plenty of 'basic training' in that.
