An Anniversary I Missed

While I was celebrating my own 21st wedding anniversary today, I missed quite a significant anniversary for the Submarine Force. Luckily, SubSunk over at Blackfive didn't miss it, and he tells the story of Turtle's attack on HMS Eagle in New York Harbor 230 years ago today.

So this other anniversary is more significant than being married to ME. Well, that will be costly to you. I am thinking 21 baskets. One basket for every year. I LOVE that thought.

Cut a shipmate some slack, huh? Obviously, it couldn't have been more significant than being married to you, or he wouldn't have forgotten it. It can still be significant, and he didn't say it was "more" significant, just "quite" significant.

Isn't that just like a woman to take things out of context, and turn this into something it's not. And no matter what we say or do, it's wrong. My wife is an expert at it. Tell me something, do you ladies go to school for this, or does this evil skill come naturally?

So, how'd I do? Did I stir the pot up good enough?
