Name Explanation

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

A quick note on names.

Just in case people haven’t noticed up until this point, I never use real names when telling my Army stories. This is because of two reasons.

The first is to protect the innocent. And guilty for that matter. I figure that some of the people I am telling stories about might still be in the service. Some might be in military-related jobs on the civilian side now. And not everybody has a sense of humor. I’d hate to see someone start getting crap or miss out on a promotion opportunity because I told a story that put them in an unflattering light. Or even just because they have a grouchy commander who doesn’t think Skippy’s List was very funny.

Even if they were in the habit of saying really stupid things, or acting like an idiot, I like to imagine that they grew up and got over it since then.

Also I try to remember all the idiotic things I have done, and how much I would hate it if someone put those all over the internet for everyone to laugh at me.

The second reason is that many of these stories happened a very long time ago. And I used to drink a lot. And I honestly don’t remember everyone’s name. Now get off my lawn.

On another note, I am beginning to reach empty on my “Magical bin of hilarious guest stories”. Which means that you guys aren’t sending any in. So get on that.
