The few, the proud...

This morning I got a call from Staff Sgt. "Smith" with the United States Marine Corps, looking for my dear daughter. I said, "The Marines?" even though I had heard him correctly.

I told him she was asleep!

I said she was in college and wouldn't be interested, but thank you. I was polite.
The thought of Kid One joining the Marines is too much for me to process.
I respect the Marines and all they do for our country to keep us safe, but she simply is not a candidate.

you never know??? sometimes they do things that just don't make sense right now, but fall into place later. good luck, whichever way this one goes!

I quite agree, Miss Patti. Thinking of a daughter in the Marine Corps is too much for me to process as well.

Patti, I don't blame you!

My goodness. They surely are aggresive, aren't they?

How did they get your number?

Patti said...

Sarah: Yes, they are. Guess they need recruits.

Lynn: I really don't know..
