Lastly, E told me a story the other day that made me giggle like a school girl. He told me that BT/ AIT soldiers are still so rigid from being so new to the Army, and that they are especially rigid around officers. E was in the DFAC (dining facility to you civilians) and got up to leave. He said the entry way was crowded with AIT soldiers and they saw him coming and E said it looked like Moses parting the Red Sea. He said one soldier didn't see him coming and that another one did and literally pushed the other guy out of the way. E heard the second guy say "I just saved your life" after E walked out the door, hahaha! Lily Burana talks about having an Army Officer as a husband in her book I Love a Man in Uniform. She said she thought it was kind of funny hearing people call her husband "Sir" and saluting him, especialy since he was the one who she fought over the remote control with at home. It's not that I don't respect my husband or think he's worthy of the respect he gets at work (I have nothing but the upmost respect and admiration for my darling husband), it's just that he's so silly, laidback and fun at home that it's hilarious that those soldiers were so intimidated by him. E said that it's funny that he got too much respect from those soldiers, but really not enough from his wild platoon when he was a platoon leader.
Anyway, my to do list for the day consists of baking that cake, getting dinner ready, laundry :(, and taking Mr. Buddy tot he park. Sometimes I really have to remind myself that he's a dog and not a little boy. Oh well... I love him so :)
By the way, I just can't believe that it's already October... where has the year gone?
