Private Talk

I became hysterical over this last night.

John is always teasing that I should join the military. I don't know why. Maybe he has always wanted to experience the single-dad thing. He likes to point out that he is almost too old to re-enlist. I remebered that my mom just BARELY made the 35-year-old deadline when I was a child, but read in the paper that over the years they've upped it to 42. So I mention this to John last night, who felt that 42 is an obscene age to join the forces and go through bootcamp and blurts out:

"Can you IMAGINE a 42-year-old private?"

I laughed until tears came pouring out. Does anyone else get see the hilarious quality of this statement?

ROFL I love when funny things like this just get blurted out, then they become lil private jokes with eachother.

Oh that's wonderful. All the girls in my admin department got it. Of course, we stay in doors and smell xerox chemicals too much, but...

...that's still pretty great.
