An F-15E from our base crashed after taking off on a training sortie yesterday. We didn't hear about it until the 11 PM news came on, but weren't worried after finding out no-one was hurt. (Local TV reports: "F-15 Eagle Crashes In Johnston County", "Investigation Continues Into F-15 Crash"; the subject quote is from the second linked story.)

Himself said there were chaplains running all over today asking people if they felt "affected" by the crash. When asked, he replied that since no-one was hurt and the jet's replaceable, he didn't really care. The chaplain just nodded and displayed a cheerfully blank look, so he continued that it really just meant one less jet to work on, though he bet the last maintainers to work on the downed jet were soiling their pants. The chaplain just nodded again and went on to the next guy.

After recapping all of this for me, he said: "I wish I could take you into work tomorrow." I was confused until he explained they're having steak tomorrow as part of some event honoring someone. Heh. I knew it couldn't be Bring Your Favorite Boobs To Work Day.

I could find a bra that would fit you. My sekrit wife (Cathouse) used to be a lingerie fitter and if she could recommend a bra that fit picky old me comfortably, I'm sure she'd be able to help me find one for you.

The real problem would be finding breasts to go in them.

I'd want to go if there was! I figure with Take Your Son/Daughter To Work Day and the multitude of greeting-card-company-invented holidays, there should be holidays for body parts.

The difficult part would be convincing whoever had my favorite body part of the holiday to go with me -- like my favorite pair of shoulders, for example. They're attached to my best friend, who's stationed in Germany. I don't think I could work out borrowing him for a day with all the transportation involved, but it would be really fun.

Hey, I feel affected. It's my tax money, dammit! ;) (My whole penny or so to cost...)

Seriously though, glad to hear the crew is okay. After all, that's the most important thing.

hahaha, still laughing at "bring your favorite boobs to work day"
I think Jon might actually bring me to that one! *giggle*

We heard the sirens go off yesterday right after it happened, and I didn't really pay attention to them, why? who knows. I did find out about an hour maybe after it happened. After I found out that nobody was hurt my next thinking was, I wonder how long Jons gonna have to work. Thankfully they didn't ask any of the cops already on shift to go out and secure the perimeter. :)

oh, and thanks for the crohns link! :)

I am touched.

Then I worry: would I have to dress up? I don't think any of my etiquette books address this sort of occasion. (:
