Talking to a young paralegal today..she's about to leave the firm to get her MBA - so you wouldn't think she was a true Twinkie. She was asking me about DH and what he does. She had just had breakfast with a friend of hers who is stationed at Bragg. When I asked what he did... she said he's an officer. "ok.... but what unit/type of unit" Infantry, I think, was her answer - sigh. BUT the best is yet to come, my children. Hearken to this:
She asked where DH was deployed to. I told her Iraq. She then asked:
Oh.. Did you go with him?
No, I kid you NOT! I didn't snap back with something akin to "how dumb ARE you?" I said, thinking she might not have heard me, "I said, he was in Iraq". She asked again, oh did you go? My response finally was - no, it's a WAR ZONE...
sigh... It never ceases to amaze me!
