So lemme tell y’all about my weekend:

  1. Delayed at LAX
  2. Got my tattoo finished. FINISHED!
  3. Fun with Julia and Friends
  4. Delayed at SFO

How was YOUR weeekend?

Yes. I really do send out these kinds of emails to my friends. Usually with more cursing and/or creative curse words as to avoid my FUCKINGWORKFILTERS (:see example). I’m very dedicated to keeping offensive content in my e-mails. I sent this email AFTER I sent out yesterday’s BHFOTD. Because SOME OF Y’ALL are not shy at all about harassment when you think I’m running late. Did y’all like my sissie’s fact? I bullied her into doing it because I didn’t wanna have to come back and spend my Sunday working. BUT IF SHE HADN’T this woulda been yesterday’s fact because It’s February BLACK HISTORY MONTH, which means that pretty much anything can be worked into a BHFOTD. Including shit I did over the weekend and jokes like these:

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, “What time is it?”

The tower responded, “Who is calling?”
The aircraft replied, “What difference does it make?”
“It makes a lot of difference,” the tower replied —
“If it is an Southwest flight, it is 3 o’clock. (It’s probably late, and was supposed to arrive at 9AM or some other ridiculously early time *cough* – changed airline name and smart ass comment added by me. FOR REASONS)
“If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
“If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
“If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
“If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it’s Thursday afternoon and 120 minutes to ‘Happy Hour’.”

I feel like you can guess where this fact is going. Nesto gets the BHFOTD too. And then I got a request. Normally, I only take requests AFTER February, because I’m an artist, and I’m sensitive about my shit (anybody wanna name that song? Anybody?) I’m kidding. It’s because I’m contrary, and I don’t like being bossed around. But I suppose being married to me is trial enough for anybody, so he deserve SOME perks. Aside from the obvious ones *nudge nudge, wink wink*

SO TODAY’S (wikipedia reading) FACT:

Frank E. Petersen Jr. (USMC) (born March 2, 1932 in Topeka, Kansas) is a retired United States Marine Corps Lieutenant General. He was the first African-American Marine Corps aviator and the first African-American Marine Corps general.

Petersen served two combat tours in two wars — Korea (1953) and Vietnam (1968). His first tactical assignment was with Marine Fighter Squadron 212 during the Korean War. He flew over 350 combat missions with over 4,000 hours in various fighter/attack aircraft.

He held command positions at all levels of Marine Corps aviation — commanding a Marine Fighter Squadron, a Marine Aircraft Group, and a Marine Aircraft Wing. He was also the first African-American to command a fighter squadron, a fighter air group, an air wing, and a major base.

And as if today’s fact isn’t long enough: I’m throwing in a flashback BHFOTD:

So one day, I was talking to Nesto and watching Lock and Load with R. Lee Ermey (“let me see your WAR FACE”) and they were doing a segment on pilots and he says to me… Did you know that I was in Iraq/Afghanistan with the first black female Cobra Pilot?

Vernice Armour.

(Because this IS getting long, and I’ve got one more day of work before I rock out in Vegas)

Semper Fi!
