Microfiction Muse #5: The Language of War




“Geronimo…EKIA”
What’s that Mr. President?
It means Enemy Killed In Action
Yes sir, that IS official Navy Seal lingo
No kidding sir
“Pinky swear”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Micro-fiction Muse involves writing a very short story (140 characters max-including spaces) based on a photo prompt. I make it my goal to always use 140 characters exactly. Diane Estrella is our host. Please be sure to visit her blog for complete rules of the meme.

Very clever, and a good reminder of essential nature.

@ Pat - I have seen a rather tasteless joke made re this similarity, on difficulty of assembly.

I don't think "pinky swear" is official lingo.
