*****UPDATE: The whole lot of them are smartasses! LOL The Yankee Sailor stopped by the comments....it's "My Navy Coterie".....not "Ny....". I'm glad someone has sharp eyes, have I explained how old I am?*******
.......and why I need it.
I have a secret stash of Sailors. When I can't figure out something on my own, I email them. Their primary mission is to make sure that I do not look like a jackass at Roundtables, here at my place and everywhere in the blogosphere. Secondary to that important task, is that they must go drinking with me should they find themselves within a 100 miles of me.
My sisters will tell you that keeping me from looking like an asshat is a Herculean task and more than can be expected of this group of heroic Sailors. LOL
So, today I am discussing the blog and the Roundtable with SB and there was this exchange
SB: .............btw...you only wish a person fair winds...etc when they are leaving for good or retiring
Maggie: Oops! I thought it was any trip. How come you never told me that before?
SB: Some think that but I don't
Maggie: I have said it many times, why have you never corrected me. You know you are supposed to make sure I don't look like an asshat. Geez!!
SB: Because it was not a big deal. You look fine.
Maggie: Good thing I have my Navy coterie. Clearly I can't rely on you! I have a new member today. Lt. Nixon, he of the rant, lol. I explained his duties were to answer my questions so I didn't look like an jackass at roundtables or in the blog and more importantly.......if he finds himself within a 100 miles, meet me for a drink
SB: He's a mere LT
Maggie: No shit, he's only 27!!! His mother comments in his blog. But, he said he was already looking forward to "knocking back a few with me" Lol
Maggie: He is in Iraq and has showered exactly four times this year
SB: So what is he bitchin about? Quarterly pms...
SB: Supposed to come back to a farewell dinner ....one where we can say Fair winds....etc
Maggie: LOL! Efffffff you Southie!
That's why there is a whole stash of them. It's a big job to keep me from stepping in it!
