Now I know what is Tit for Tat

Army lives make a big difference on innocence. Its a war everyday and with the wives it is a battle. Battle of wills, battle for attention, battle to survive...and yet we do. Sometimes its a triumphant feeling of victory over how you passed the evening without having to say what you actually wanted to say but sometimes its difficult to hide whats in your mind. Then comes the times when you say things out aloud, let your emotional intelligence govern over common sense.

Army wives do not make good friends nor are they your long lost sisters because the advice they wanna give is just to satisfy their egos. Cause all those years of slogging their butts behind another senior officer's wife should not have to go waste. Now the only game plan they have is to vomit all the information they have in their minds, all the scheming and planning should come to use after all, now that they have the younger lot to follow them. But sadly they are so very mistaken. Today's army wives are not looking for examples. They are THE 'examples'. Maybe they do not know how to be witty when a senior officer's wife is bullshitting them but they do know that cold silence is the way to just avoid the crap in the army. Sometimes they work and sometimes they do not. But this is what is the thing to do when all you want to do is pick up your highest expensive heel and throw it at them...

  2. Being a writer you can easily avoid these frustrations and should consider the individuals as characters where the situations and interactions as part of the plot and you being the audience to it. Being a writer you should be aloof from any emotions as how your characters react to certain situations but be tender to these characters. Enjoy them.
