Private Talk

I became hysterical over this last night.

John is always teasing that I should join the military. I don’t know why. Maybe he has always wanted to experience the single-dad thing. He likes to point out that he is almost too old to re-enlist. I remebered that my mom just BARELY made the 35-year-old deadline when I was a child, but read in the paper that over the years they’ve upped it to 42. So I mention this to John last night, who felt that 42 is an obscene age to join the forces and go through bootcamp and blurts out:

“Can you IMAGINE a 42-year-old private?”

I laughed until tears came pouring out. Does anyone else get see the hilarious quality of this statement?
