Crystal let out an involuntary laugh, and then tried to stifle her giggles. The two broad shouldered macho-types sitting on her couch looked at her as if she had gone mad.
“What’s so funny?” her boyfriend Rich asked.
“It’s just – it’s just,” she tried to say before bursting into another chuckle. Calming herself, she finally managed to say, “It’s just that Dave just asked you, ‘Do you remember when we used to hump until we died?’. You don’t want to know the image that went through my mind,” she said, before bursting into another fit of laughter.
“Ha ha,” Rich said sarcastically. “Hump – ‘hike with full gear and pack’.”
“I need to hit the head,” Dave said.
“Down the hall and on the left,” Rich replied.
As his buddy left the room, Rich said, “I know Marine jargon is a bit arcane, but just try to act like a grown up.”
“Okay,” she said and then burst into laughter again, “You two humping. Can’t wait to tell Janet.”
