There's Still Some Army In Me

My son was a stereotypical teenage boy.  He didn't move very fast.  If we needed to leave for school I'd have to hustle him along on many mornings.

When he called me on Sunday he said something like, "I know where you got some of your sayings.  I'm already sick of hearing 'move with a purpose!' here."  I'm sure he could hear me smiling through the phone as I said, "See?  See?!"

Some things just never leave you, I guess.  I wonder what other army-isms I still use....

I just still back and smile when I hear one of my adult children use one of my Army phrases. Even more so when they use a West Point-ism.

It's not just Army. How many times have you heard your father's voice when you say something. My daughter called me the other day after saying something I told her for years. Commonsense should get passed down.
