Quotes from the Boat, Volume 5

My husband says funny things. Funny things that often become even funnier in the voiceless environment of e-mails sent amidst the chaos of deployment on an aircraft carrier. In my Quotes from the Boat series, I'll be sharing select gems plucked straight from my e-mail correspondence with the king of the cruise himself. From funny, to touching, to just plain weird, these are Jason's musings from aboard the "big metal city."

You are a big deal, at least to me.

Everyone is jealous of how many care packages I get. They think that you are the best. :)

I can't help but be homesick. These experiences give me more of an appreciation for what we have, and it makes me not take things for granted so much. Everyone on this ship is sacrificing a big part of their life for this nation. They're not easy sacrifices to make.

I'm glad to hear that the roses are still looking good. They are only a small indication of how beautiful I think you are.

I got out of the shower and went to my rack to change into some clean clothes. As I bent over to grab my underwear, one of my rack-mates walked into our rack area and saw my ass, twig and berries. He was like "Dude! WTF!" I couldn't stop laughing. He thought I did this intentionally. He was like, "I'm gonna get you back for that!" Mind you, nobody else was around when this happened. So, I got dressed and as I was about to walk to my shop from the berthing, the same guy from before walked up to me in a towel and said "This is for you!" He dropped his towel and mooned me with his ass.


I had a rough evening. A combination of factors added up to be just too much for one day. But I cried it out, my kitties are playing musical chairs on my lap, I reread Jason's twig and berries story, and now things don't seem quite so bad after all. Moral of the story: my husband can cheer me up without doing a thing.

Aw...funny and sweet both. I'm glad he was able to cheer you up, and it's easy to see why he does.
