Woman Power Wednesday

Dedicated to all of those amazing women serving in the armed forces, with a special nod to one
magnificent young woman, who's just finished her basic training in the Air Force.

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the GIs on board information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, "Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your caption, Judith Campbell, and her crew take you safely to Afganistan."

An old Sergeant Major sitting in the eight row thought to himself, "Did I hear her right? Is the pilot a woman?"

When the attendant came by, panicked, he grabbed her by the arm and said, "Did I understand you right? Is the pilot of this plane a woman?"

A large smile appeared on the female attendant's face.

"My God," the Sergeant Major said, "I wish I had a double scotch and soda. I don't know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit."

"That's another thing, Sergeant, " said the crew member.

"We no longer call it the Cockpit"...


..."It's the Box Office."

******************************

Quote of the Day:

"Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater.

If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.

If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges whatever is given to her.

So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit."

Here's to all our sisters, serving our country on foreign shores and domestic.

Here's to the Box Office!

Also, a whispered 'Namaste' goes out to the mothers, sisters, daughters and wives who are hurting today.

Countess Sandi: Box Office. Hah. With the Oscar nominations just being announced, it seemed kind of apropos...

Countess Ti: Well said - and thank you, thank you, thank you for remembering all the cherished women that may be silently hurting.

Psst...

"while your caption, Judith Campbell"

Count Cormac: Ha Ha!! Maybe she's so important, she has her own closed-captioning, which they were referring to.

Darling, it's not like the New Yorker is lurking in my readership waiting to offer me a job...

Still, I bow to your mad editorial skills - you should have your work cut out for you the next couple of weeks... ;)

Countess MPM: I raise a glass of cough medicine to you, dear lady!
