whispered, "Joe! I'm worried about you! Seems like everyone is mad at you right now. Can I help?"
Nah, no worries Anna. I can deal on my own. Thanks for the concern though.
whispered, "Merry Christmas, Joe! Celebrate with lots of umbrella drinks!"
Merry Christmas Anna. And will do.
whispered, "Joe!! Aloha!!! How are you? Christmas puts me in a bad mood, so I haven't been online much to talk to you. Plus, it seems that you've been very busy. I heard you went to Japan! Is that true?"
Hey Anna. Well, this Christmas is gonna be tough for me too. I got some things I gotta fix, so I won’t be spending it with joy and laughter. But, I hope you have a good Christmas.
whispered, "Got your Christmas shopping done yet, Joe?"
No. not yet. I don’t think I’ll be shopping this year. I have other more important things to take care of.
whispered, "Haha! Tell you what, Joe. If you'll provide the beer and let me play piano in your bar, I will go along with whatever you say! (or don't say)"
whispered, "I saw that your focus is on "other things." I'm not quite sure what to think, Joe, and I'm really wondering what you're up to. I think Shelburn is someone that Steve knows. Maybe even you? But I know you won't tell! (You could just whisper it to me, though. I won't tell anyone else. Promise. I have security clearance.)"
Well, I am no longer in the Navy, but I still would like to keep some things to myself.
And I don’t know what you mean about Shelburn. I have know idea what that is. Though, if you heard something from Steve, you should ask him.
whispered, "Joe! I'm so sorry you have to leave the Navy! Do you need a hug? However, I'm still glad that you saved Steve. Can I come visit your bar when you open it? Will you serve Fat Tire beer, cause that's my favorite?"
Yeah, well it’s fine. I always wanted to open a bar. As of now, my focus is on other things.
I’ll let you know soon.
whispered, "Commander White! I noticed that you have a thumb ring! I saw it when you and your friend were building that boar blind (which is an interesting hobby, BTW). Nice! I hope you, Steve, and all your team are rested up from your trip to...wait, I probably shouldn't say where you went, right? It's classified."
Haha. Thanks Anna. That thumb ring is kinda something from my past that I like to treasure and keep to myself.
And yes, we are all rested. And yes, it’s classified, so shhh.
whispered, "Hi, Joe! I am drinking wine tonight instead of my usual beer. I think some of your classiness is rubbing off on me!! You must really be the Aloha type after all! Are you getting ready for Christmas in Hawaii?"
Well, I usually don’t decorate my house with anything for Christmas. I am not really a holiday kinda person.
whispered, "BEAUTIFUL PERSON AWARD! ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THIS AWARD, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO PASTE IT IN THE ASK OF 8 PEOPLE WHO DESERVE IT. IF YOU BREAK THE CHAIN NOTHING WILL HAPPEN, BUT IT’S ALWAYS SWEET TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE THINKS YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT <3"
You’re too kind. Right back at ya, Anna!
