You're KIDDING! NOT since 1955!?
A battle-seasoned, long-serving Marine Sergeant Major found himself at a gala hosted by a community college in honor of local members of the military.
There was no shortage of very attractive women ranging in age from early 20s to mid-50s and even older. One of them—seemingly mid-40s to mid-50s—approached the Sgt. Major to start a conversation.
"Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?" “Negative, ma’am; I’m just serious by nature,’ he replied.
As she gazed at the multiple rows of award ribbons decorating his uniform, she casually told him; “It looks like you’re seen a LOT of action.” Again, with a seriousness bordering on sternness, he replied, “Yes, ma’am, a lot of action.”
Approaching a point of irritation at her difficulty in trying to make this dude lighten up a bit, this mature, but ever HOT-looking woman said, "You know, you should lighten up! Relax a bit and enjoy yourself."
But he didn’t crack so much as even a tiny smile and replied in an ever so serious tone, “Yes, ma’am.”
Finally, in complete exasperation, she said, “Please don’t take this the wrong way, but when’s the last time you had sex?” With the seriousness of a brain surgeon performing life and death surgery, he replied, “1955, ma’am.”
"Well, my GOD,” she exclaimed; “No wonder you’re so serious and uptight!” She led him by the hand to an unlocked office nearby, where she spent the next two hours “relaxing” him... THREE times.
When it was over, as she cuddled half on top of him on the office sofa, she expressed her amazement that he had apparently “NOT forgotten a thing since 1955!” To which, while nonchalantly gazing at his watch, he replied, “Yes, ma’am; I hope not, since it’s now only 2155!”
And, NOW, you know WHY the military has ALWAYS used a 24-hour clock to express time. They’ve even given it the name of "MILITARY" time.
Drinking under a different name is not the same thing as joining Alcoholics Anonymous.
