Yesterday I was watching a movie when the daughter came downstairs to let me know the husband was online and wanted to talk to me... so I paused the movie (which was Hereafter, btw) and got in front of the computer...
Nothing... no response.... for 5 minutes! So I logged out of Facebook and resumed watching the movie.
Ten minutes later the daughter comes downstairs again...
"SGT Jekyll!"- OK, she really did not call him that... I call him that.
So I pause the movie YET AGAIN and go and log into Facebook YET AGAIN.
Me- "You there"
Two minutes later- "Yes, I am."
Then nothing... finally 4 minutes after that he asks me: "How do I send you an article?"
Me- "You copy the URL and paste it into the chat box."
Five minutes later, nothing...
"You will see when I send it to you."
Me- "If you press Ctrl C that copies and Ctrl V pastes as well... it just takes seconds!"
Him- "It won't let me"
"I gotta run, I will call you in a bit"
Now to him a bit can mean a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days... so I went back to my movie. A minute later he called.
He tells me that there is an article on AKO (Army Knowledge Online) that talks about what they are doing and there is a picture of him. So I log into AKO and check all of the news links... nothing.
"Babe, it isn't here."
"Just keep refreshing the page! It will pop up!"
"It does not work that way!"
Finally he tells me that it is on the login page BEFORE you sign in. I finally find the picture with this caption...
Me- "That is not an article! That is a featured photo!"
Him- "It is an article!"
Me- "No it isn't!!! It is a photo with a caption!"
Him- "No, it is an article!"
Me- "Fine, it is an article... all about you... the whole world wants to know who this Sgt. Jerkyll is!"
Him- "I don't know, but whoever that guy is I am going to kick his ass for getting my name wrong! I told him how to spell it like 10 times!"
He then asked me if my hair was still two-toned. I told him it was. He said that I am such a beautiful blonde, why would I want to have that ugly pink in it? I told him that I could do it here, it is ok here, I can have my job with it here and no one looks twice at me. I cannot do it Stateside, so just let me do it while I am here!!! He said "Fine, keep the pink; get it out of your system!" I love my husband!!!
He always says: "Honey, I did not marry a freak."
To which I reply: "Uh, yes... you did."
