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.

Cool!

And for the record I crash and burn playing Grand Theft Auto so I'm sure a flight simulator would be completely beyond me.

Lol, oh my! I want to do a day like that... I think when we were still in 29 Palms they did something like that but I was a brand-new wife then and terrified!

Are you talking about me? LOL My husband thinks I need driving lessons when it comes to parking! I have amazing space orientation and I never get lost but when it comes to jugding space I have for parallel parking - I get lost. It's so sad! :D

Sounds like fun to me! And I never parallel park. Ever.

I always love these! It's fun to have a day in our husbands work lives and see what they do all day long. Enjoy!

This sounds like so much fun! I would love to be a fly on the wall in one of my husband's classes or baseball practices :-) Enjoy eating, chatting and hopefully NOT crashing and burning! (I can't parallel park either, if it makes you feel any better.) XOXO
