Anyone who has ever seen any type of war movie has heard military ABC's. Yeah yeah yeah. I know it's called the phonetic alphabet or something like that. Whatever. Just nod your head and tell me you know what I'm talking about already!
The other night Fred, Paige, and myself were in the kitchen chatting whilst cooking supper. Somehow the phonetic letters were brought up. I was trying to go through the whole list to see if I could remember them. I did pretty decently for a person who doesn't use them on a regular basis.
I do have one teeny tiny beef about those letters, though. And it's not like what I think matters because the letters have been that way for a while and I'm pretty sure they're not going to change any time soon.
I was reciting letters and got to the end when I realized I had no clue what the letter "Y" stood for. And for good reason! The phonetic thingy is "Yankee". Now hold up a minute.
Where is the fair representation in all of this?
If Yankee can be used why can't you use "Rebel" for the letter "R" so that both sides of the coin can be seen? That's not hardly fair and I'm starting to lean toward some discrimination.
Paige totally saw my side to this argument (of course Fred just stands there and lets me rant and rave with his arms crossed not saying a word).
Paige: I know, right? "R" could be used for Rebel or REDNECK. We're not picky.
I got me one smart kid there.
I hope I'm never in a situation where I have to use the Military ABC's because if I am?
I'm totally gonna use Rebel or Redneck for the letter R.
(For those who don't know....Romeo is used for the letter R. How sucky is that?)
