Bring Your Wife to Work Day
This week Husband’s unit is hosting a day where spouses can tour the unit. I think they call it something like “Spouse Day,” but I’m (jokingly) calling it “Bring Your Tootie to Work Day.” They’ll give us a tour of the flight line and the tower, and at some point we get to try out the aircraft simulator. I did the simulator at our last assignment, and let’s just say that “crash and burn” sums up how I did quite nicely. I think I would make the worst kind of aviator because even with Husband’s helpful directions (“pull up!”), I was totally unaware of how badly I was doing until I crashed. But then again, I can’t be trusted to parallel park a car. Luckily, we’ll be doing other activities like eating and chatting that I’m confident I can do quite well without any instructions.
