c) stand on my head and drink a beer
d) shoot myself in the ear with a service revolver

Just go out and see what happens?

To quote Gregory Peck in Twelve O'clock High, "Your problem is you think you are going to survive this war. You think you are going to go home! From this moment on, you are dead. Once you realize that, you can do your job!"
13 sorties in a Fee is remarkable. I would be proud. Your B pilot awaits!

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
