Overheard at the Dinner Table

December 11th, 2011 Posted in Family Stuff

We were over at my parents for dinner and the conversation between my dad and I turned toward our days in the military.

ME: So here we are, washing down the bulkhead which has about 30 years of smoke buildup on it…

MOM: Why do you call it a bulkhead?

DAD: Because that’s what it is.

WIFE: But don’t you call the bathroom a ‘Head’?

ME: Yep.

Confused looks pass between my wife and my mom as dad and I sit there grinning.

MOM: Why don’t you just call it a wall like everyone else instead of making it so confusing?

ME: Well, we really do it just to mess with the Marines.
