Over and Out

Over and Out

The Tigress was making fun of dispatch tonight and ended by saying “Over and out.” This necessitated me asking if she knew that was completely pointless to say since in radio vernacular “Over” means, “I am done and listening for your reply,” and “Out” means “I am done and will not be listening for a reply.”

While this is a completely useless phrase on the radio, it does occur to me that in the husbandly vernacular it is completely useful. Hence forth “Over and out” shall mean, “Nag all you want, I’m going back to sleep.”
