The Old Salt Learns At 66+ Years
Ya think you have lived to be 66+ and know who you are, then along comes someone and blows it all to hell!
The Old Salt sat down at the Starbucks and ordered a cup of coffee.
As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him..
She turned to the Old Salt and asked, 'Are you a real sailor?'
He replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life working on and sailing in submarines; first an Auxiliary Submarine (essentially a reclassified fleet submarine with no snorkel as built for WWII), followed by Guppy 2, Guppy 2A and a Guppy 3 diesel configurations, then an ancient nuclear submarine (already 21 years of age when I went aboard) and lastly a brand new Los Angeles Fast Attack. I taught many sailors in various schools during my service tenure as well as those I taught on-the-job. I have sailed in the North and South Pacific, the North and South Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the English Channel. I have visited Hawaii, Canada, England, France, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Malta, Puerto Rico, Columbia, Panama, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Curacao, Jamaica, Mexico, Belize by ship or submarine, so yes, I guess I am a sailor."
She said, 'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.'
The two sat sipping in silence.
A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the Old Salt and asked, 'Are you a real sailor?'
He replied, 'I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian.'
