The Naval Aviator

The Naval Aviator As Seen by Himself:

An incredibly intelligent, tall, handsome, innovative, and highly trained professional killer, idol to countless females, and Gentleman Adventurer, who wears a star sapphire ring, carries a hair-trigger .45 automatic in a specially designed, hand-made quick draw holster along with his trusty survival knife, who is always on time thanks to his ability to obtain immediate transportation and the reliability of his Rolex watch.

As Seen by His Wife:

A disreputable member of the family who comes home once a year all bruised up, driving a stolen jeep up to the back door carrying a B-4 bag full of dirty laundry, wearing a stained flight suit, smelling of stale booze and JP-4, wearing a huge watch, a fake ring, and that damn ugly beat-up pistol in that stupid holster, who will three months later go out the front door, thankfully for another year.

As Seen by His Commander:

A fine specimen of a drunken, brawling, jeep stealing, woman corrupting liar, with a star sapphire ring, fantastically accurate Rolex watch, an unauthorized .45 in a non-regulation shoulder holster, and trusty survival knife.

As Seen by Wing Headquarters:

The embodiment of a drunken, brawling, jeep stealing, woman corrupting, lying, zipper-suited Sun God, with a ring, a proscribed 1911A1 .45 in a non-regulation shoulder holster, a Rolex watch, who for some reason carries a survival knife.

As Seen by the DoD:

An overpaid, rule-ignoring, over-ranked tax burden, who is unfortunately totally indispensable simply because he has volunteered to go anywhere, and do anything, at any time, only so long as he can booze it up, brawl, steal jeeps, corrupt women, lie, and wear a star sapphire ring, Rolex watch, and carry an obsolete hand gun and a survival knife.

As Seen by the Enemy:

The implacable face of death!

  1. Don't we all see ourselves in the best light all the time.. hehehehe.. good one.

    Have a good weekend Sandee!

  2. Ah, there is something about a Navy Pilot in those dress whites. Be still my heart. I ♥ JAG and just watched it last night.

    And I don't know nuthin' about no non-regulation shoulder holster or any of that other stuff. Just sayin'. :)

    Big hugs xoxo

  3. Sure doesn't sound like anyone I want to meet. Hope you have a great week end Sandee.

  4. That was wonderful and very poignant for me right now.

    ...Not the Naval Part, just how different folks see the same thing differently.

    Have a even-keel weekend and have a boat drink for me...Aloha :)

  5. A great story! People do see things from different points of view. Usually their point of view is wrong but then again they may need therapy. LOL

    Have a great day!

  6. Ah yes, I know several people who fit this description even if they aren't aviators as they are in the Navy!

    Have a great weekend, Sandee!

  7. And everyone thinks his/her opinion is the correct one! :). I do admire a guy in uniform. Just sayin.

    Big hugs honey...

  8. i can't think of one without thinking of lala's hubby matt now!!! lol

    smiles, bee

  9. Whatever be your profession, it is impossible to impress your wife and colleagues. Of course they know your true color!
    Have a great day!

  10. A Naval Aviator has to to do what he has to do! And that seems to be having a ball!

  11. o yes indeedy we are all awesome! God bless you my friend:)

  12. It's always in the eye of the beholder.

  13. perception is a funny thing isn't it.

  14. Is that really G.I. Joe?
