Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

this phrase is an alternative to saying WTF, and is an example of using military lingo.  today it is in honor of my dry socket.  i had a molar pulled yesterday and thought i was dealing with the pain pretty well until a couple of hours ago.  this is not right, i kept thinking.  then it hit me:  the dreaded dry socket!  you're not even supposed to get a dry socket this fast are you?  noooooooooo, but sure enough i looked in the mirror and my blood clot has gone AWOL. whiskey. tango. foxtrot.  why me?  i wish i could get it back! 

it is rumored that compwalla started using this phrase around the pod, so thanks virginia!
