If you are related or know a Marine, then you a fully aware of the phrase “The Suck.” The Suck is like an unfortunate string of events, an inconvenience or hell of some sort. This is my “Suck.” Observe:
RINGS! My Kayne West ring tone… its my Mom.
Mom: Hey, Beanie. Are you sleeping?
Jo: No, I’m layin’ around.
Mom: You sound like you’re sleeping.
Jo: I am tired but not sleeping yet. I’ve had trouble at night sleeping, Night Terrors.
Mom: You haven’t been taking your medicine have you? Are you dizzy? Shooting pains? Go get your prescription filled!
Jo: I did, I got a 3 month supply for 10 bucks… it’ll go away soon.
Mom: That’s good Beanie! When do you come home? I can’t wait! You don’t have to worry about cleaning, cooking, laundry, nothing… no more work it’s all taken care of!
Jo: Really? I really did quit this time. I’m just so busy Mom…
Mom: I know, you need to quit pressuring yourself so much! It’s all taken care of Beanie… how is Danielson? Did he find a job?
Jo: I’ll come home tomorrow, I’m so excited now, Mom… we can drink wine together! Dan is fine… no job… still Navy Officer possibility… I don’t care either way.
Mom: Yes, Beanie, we can drink wine and WORK OUT together. You should help him find a job, Bean.
Jo. No on both, Mom. I love you. See you tomorrow.
Mom: Oh, Beanie, don’t be like that! Don’t rush yourself or Danielson coming down tomorrow… take your time. K. Bye.
As soon as I hang up the phone, “Danielson” is bringing me a glass of wine, dinner, and made brownies!!!! I am a lucky Son O’ Bitch! I love “The Suck!”
**InterestingFact of the Day ** Jarhead is one of the best movies ever made in our generation. Per “Nestie” post this is also one of the best novel turned movie characters as well. Ooohh-Rah!!
Isn’t she lovely? She really is my queen! Dan & I are fortunate to have both sets of parents treat us “this way.” They are the sole reason we will NEVER really grow up. Thank God for Mommies & Daddies.
