For several years I took JJ cake, but I can't remember when it started. If I recall correctly I'm sure it started as a total fluke. JJ can do that to people. Cause flukes I mean. The first time he called me on the phone to remind me it was going to be Veteran's Day and just wanted me to know he wasn't going to be at work the day after (we get this holiday off) Veteran's Day. He didn't want me to feel bad when I brought cake in and he wasn't there. My mind was whirling. I couldn't remember bringing him in a piece of cake on his special day. However, in case I had forgotten, or in case JJ couldn't SUCKER any other lady to bring in cake for Veteran's Day, I decided to make this my personal tradition with him. In my mind I could picture JJ sitting in his office calling his favorite girls first trying to figure out which one he could entice to bring him cake. (There was probably a small audience egging him on.) Unknown to me which number I hailed, I baked cake for JJ. So the tradition began.
JJ, you will always be my favorite Marine. In my heart I hold you forever eating cake!! Happy Veteran's Day JJ!!
