So I have been in the Navy for 25 years now and been on a couple ships. It never fails when you get to the mess decks (dining room) and they are having surf and turf nothing good can come from it. Usually within a couple hours of dinner being over the Skipper will come on the 1MC (announcement system) and hope the crew enjoyed the meal and what a great job our cooks did and what a great crew has been doing just to end the pep talk with "we have been extended on station for at least another month (so a 6/7/8 month cruise just turned into a 7/8/9 month cruise which ultimately will end at 12months...thank god I get "free" college, sorry i couldn't help myself). So now that you know my back ground here is what occurred with my wife last night. I am looking at Vipers, which is nothing new I am constantly looking at cars (because I love them). She walks in the room and says "whats that" and I tell her its a Viper. She says do you want one? I said I woudl but not really sure I want to spend 90-150K on one. She says if you want just get it...of course that makes me happy, but all I can think about is surf and turf on the ship, what is coming down the pipe...LOL!
