Let's see what I can remember from my flyboy days...

Wilco - Will comply
ack ack - anti-aircraft fire
meatball - the bull terrier from Baa Baa Black Sheep?
Zeke - aka A6M Reisen aka Zero
Scuttlebutt - gossip?

Ah, we have a pilot in our midst.

Perhaps I shouldn't say too much, lest I give too much away for Chaos. *Grin*

Thanks for dropping by, Mr. Sanguine.

Ai, doing the quiz and getting them all correct are two different things, my friend.

Two weeks... two weeks... you have two weeks to refine your answers should you feel the need to.

My lips are sealed till then.

(You can SURF THE NET during a MEETING???)

Well, being no flyboy, aviation lover, nor aspirationally deluded, I do not profess to being able to score in the quiz.

In fact, that wasn't a requirement. All that was required was I do the pop quiz. And THAT, I did.

Sure I can surf during a meeting. I have a lap top and its connected to our network. No one can see what I am typing as the meeting progresses and I did mention I typed fast, no?

Aye, now that you've reminded me, I think I did say if you tried the pop quiz. Alright then. Let me think of what to get for you. *Grin*

But how's about I dangle an extra carrot for getting all of them correct? :P

Nah... I am pretty sure the meanings in there are valid. Just a matter of whether those are the terminologies you want.

But still... if I get em all correct, then I get an extra prize! WOOT WOOT!

Ha ha ha... Chaos, you very the buay pai seh leh. But a promise is a promise. Let me think.

It is not about being not shy.

- It's about a promise made
(of which I would lay my life down for)

- It is about honor.

- It is also a recognition for having done something I didn't want to do.

- Ok maybe a little is also to see how innovative you can get with a prize.

I leave the prize selection up to you. Make it useful, reminder of this quiz and related to aviation.

serves you right for making me do this quiz!

Blogging is stressful.

Lucky I am quitting soon.

Blogger ChroniclesofChaos said...

I wonder sometimes, at the number of times you mention that you are quitting.

Could it be that with these words, you are expressing your own regret at quitting it so soon?

Hmmm... I wonder.

Blogger Acey Deucey said...

Of course there is regret. No, it is not a regret.

Rather, it is a natural progression that will leave me little bit sad.

I enjoy blogging. No doubt I will feel some withdrawal effects when it happens. But I'm sure the events then will overwhelm this feeling quite thoroughly.
