Be All That You Can Be

Terrrifying.

The Unites States Army is actively recruiting me.

Me... Scary. I always said when the Army needs me they are in deep poop. Well, I guess things must be going terribly.

It all started with the Middle Son  talking me into playing the virtual Army experience with him at the Alliance Air Show. They got my email address and phone number as well as my age.  Being 37 I figured that would stop any danger of calls.

Oh no. They called. THE WIFE warned them I am 37, have a bad back, high blood pressure and I am overweight.

No problem they said. He can be 42 they said. What does he do for a living they asked?

He's in communications.

Apparently that is like blood in the water as they actually showed up at the house yesterday to talk to me (of course I was at work). Funny though.

So the Oldest Boy asked if I was going to enlist. I'm not planning on it, but it's interesting to think about. Could make for good blog fodder.

What do you all think?

That is insane yet hilarious. I don't really know what else to say about it--I can't quit laughing long enough to come up with anything witty.

I had an incredibly witty response but given the events in Killeen today, I don't feel like I should go there... I will say that I thought the pitbull recruiters left you alone after 35 though?? wow.
