Military Rhetoric

She said, “How was the store?”

He said, “Not too crowded and relatively peaceful. I can’t complain, although I guess I should just on general principles.”

She said, “Principals are bossy enough. Don’t go making them generals!”

He said, “That would be a major problem.”

She asked, “So what has put you in such a military frame of mind?”

He said, “It’s a private matter.”

      And I have been talking about moving to Friday Harbor since August 25th.

      1. I guess I’ve been a bad girl and not read all your posts. Now… where is Friday Harbor? Am I gonna have to Google it? Sheeeesh!

        Meta tags?? Register?? Oh, I so haven’t a clue about any of that.
