Are you a real pilot?”

An old Marine Pilot sat  down at the Starbucks, wearing his old USMC flight

suit and leather jacket and  ordered a cup of coffee.

As he sat sipping his  coffee, a young woman sat down next to him.

She turned to the pilot and  asked, ‘Are you a real pilot?’

He replied, ‘Well, I’ve  spent my whole life flying planes, first Steadman’s,

then the early Grummans…  flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later

in the Korean conflict,  Banshees and Cougars. I’ve taught more than 260

people to fly and given  rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are  you?

She said, ‘I’m a lesbian. I  spend my whole day thinking about naked women.

As soon as I get up in the  morning, I think about naked women. When I

shower, I think about naked  women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women.

It seems everything makes  me think of naked women.’

The two sat sipping in  silence.

A little while later, a  young man sat down on the other side of

the old pilot and asked:  “are you a real pilot?”

He replied, ‘I always  thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.
