    Very nice. Good thing all you got sliced was your finger.

    Oh, my, I always had a weakness for a man in uniform. I would have considered either of you a fine catch.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Oh, yes, Elvis. Being an American teenager of a military family stationed in Europe made you very popular with the soldier boys. When I had already turned 18 my parents took me to the base adult evening get-together. We had a longish table with some other folks and I was allowed a sloe gin. I was sitting there admittedly getting a little bored and when I get bored I get kind of sleepy. And then this certain soldier I had already had my eye on and had visited at our home with some of the other guys, arrived and sat down at the table. After a little while this soldier shouted across the table to my dad "I want to marry your daughter", and believe me I perked right up after that. Let's just say this situation didn't turn out so well because my dad was a spoil sport and was this guy's sergeant, and sorry to say I never saw him again. But at least we had one dance.
