The following is an email exchange between me and my buddy Ski, who is fairly high up the food chain at our local Big National Corporation. As I may have mentioned before, he was a corporal in the same air group and I was a captain back in the mid-80’s, but we first met two years ago during H1N1 when we were both serving on our county emergency planning committee.

He: Hey, got a question for you. What was your last name when you were in the Corps?

Me: "Ma’am."

He: Oh, funny. VERY funny.

I do believe that was also your first name...

No, my first name was "Captain."
