With all the Costa love out there, I figured Travis should get some of that wealth.. besides, a Marines girlfriend couldn't be wrong

"What did he do before MagPul?" she asks suddenly
"He was a Force Recon bubba." I answer, trying to watch and eat and make her less interested in Travis.
"Oh, he was a Marine?!" she asks, really interested now. Fail. I curse myself for having worked so hard to get her to watch Generation Kill last month! Double fail.
But suddenly, she lets it go. Win? She asks a question here and there, but it's directed at me and how I do things when I'm downrange, etc. So maybe this is bonding after all? Not so fast, Payback!!!
As we are getting ready to go out for the aforementioned dinner, she comes up behind me, runs her hand over my high and tight motivator haircut and asks, "Baby, have you ever thought about cutting your hair like Travis in the video?"
I ask, not sure that I heard her right
"You know, a little more tapered on the sides, not so, extreme? It looks really good on him." Now, again, you had to be there for the way she scrunched up her face when she said "extreme" and the tone of her voice when she said "...really good on him." This and the fact that she had always said she liked my moto cut up until now got her the following response:
"Well, first of all, Travis can cut his hair however the hell he wants to, he's not on Active Duty anymore. Second of all, he was a Recon guy, I'm at Parris Island, there's a BIG difference in that thing we call the grooming standard!" Now, I thought it was over at this point but then she giggled and said,
"You sound like that Sergeant Major in Generation Kill, yelling about the grooming standard. Ha!"
(I swear to God, I almost lost my shit when she said that.) All I could say was, "Get. Your. Coat."
After driving to dinner in silence, I think she got the hint.
