more quotable quotes

Here are some more life-changing sayings HF brought home from the academy:

"After you graduate, you'll know just enough to get your @$$ kicked."

"Kick @$$, Take Names, Dominate, and own real estate." (whatever that means!!!???)

And my personal favorite: "If you look like food, you will be eaten."

I can't help it, but I picture HF's instructors looking like Chuck Norris or Steven Segal whenever HF relays one of these sayings to me. I know, these are meant to help the cadets out and keep them in check, but that's just a little insight into my mind/sense of humor. Everything HF tells me about the academy is played out in my mind with the following actors:
  1. Chuck Norris
  2. Steven Segal
  3. Charles Bronson
  4. Clint Eastwood
  5. Steve McQueen
  6. Mr. Miyagi
  7. the bad ex-military sensei in charge of all the cobra kai's
  8. Rex, as in Rex Kwan Do from Napoleon Dynamite
You get the point. If only HF knew the suspense and excitement going on in my mind while he's filling me in about his day in the academy!

along with the inward eye-rolling, because who REALLY needs to know for the 16th time how to put a proper elbow lock on a criminal?? LOL!

Yes, the food quote must have an extremely deep meaning as it is currently over my head. I will go meditate on it...

VERY funny post! I always know if my man's just done some serious testoterone-induced whooping because he acts really dorky on the phone (like watching a Bruce Lee flick or Chuck Norris movie). I've just given up trying to get anything useful out of him until he comes home and gets a little bit of suburbia back into his system. ;)

Okay, Rex Kwan Do did come up multiple times during defensive tactics. I'm not surprised! :)

Also, CopHubby also brings home a garden variety of YouTube videos that his buddies have enjoyed. Some include a "Hamster on a Piano Eating Popcorn" and a "Chimpanzee Riding on a Segue" just to name a few. :)

I'm so glad he is happy doing what he is doing at the Academy. :)

Slam Dunk- When HF told me this one, I was thinking like Homer Simpson, picturing a nice cheeseburger meal and thinking, "yes, you will be eaten", but it's basically a manly way of saying, if you look weak and scared, etc., then you will get taken advantage of, etc.

Natalie- I know what you mean. When I talk to HF on the phone when he's with other guys, I have no idea what he's talking about. I can almost hear all the chest to chest bumping going on. I draw the line when he tries to do that to me.

L.I.T.-nice to know our future protectors are getting their laughs watching animal videos. . . :) You should start a police wife blog so we can bond over our soon to be police hubbies!
