I decided to do Monday’s crossword puzzle today (it’s Tuesday), because doing Monday’s puzzle makes me feel smarter.
One of the clues asked for the rank above capt. I knew it was maj. and so did my husband, why?
Not because we live in a military town—we do
Not because my husband works on base a lot—he does
Not because I am an historian—I am
No, my husband knows because Stratego was his favorite game as a child
And, I know because of M*A*S*H.
Thank God for cultural literacy.
Oh, by the way, I still have four squares blank on the crossword. So much for self-esteem.
