I had a strange variation on the going-to-school-naked dream last night: I dreamt I went to a Veteran's Day parade in Class A's, but I had forgotten my beret. Talk about panic! I bolted awake and calmed myself down by reminding myself that I'm not even in the military...

And you're not Monica Lewinsky either (the beret, the beret). That's funny Sarah. You need a warm bath with aromatic salts and a glass of wine to rest easy.

LOL I used to have the "forgot my class schedule or high school gym locker combo" dreams all the time until I retired. Now it's "back to my old Korea unit with a beergut and a my underwear."

Last night, NBC's "American Dreams" concluded with a very lengthy Ford Mustang commercial - complete with a Marine travelling home in his BDU's. As the Marine stepped outside to the car, my husband (Active Duty, Army) yelled at the tv, "Marine! Where is your HEADGEAR?!?!" I was laughing, but he was not amused. He said that if they'd taken the time to make such a commercial (honestly, the gist was that a brand new Mustang is a nice "thank you" gift to your son for serving in the military) - that they should have at least gotten the uniform correct.

Suzy: I yelled at the TV too when I saw this episode of Smallville (see here). Improper military stuff bugs me too.
