There are a few short phrases that will leave any military spouse weak at the knees, salivating, crouched ready to spring and jump her sailor.

Sailors! Take heed! Listen up! Just spout these phrases and your wife will become putty in your hand….

“Comms are up, promise I’ll call later today”.
I’ve got that funny feeling in my tummy!
“I’ve taken Friday off”
Oh yeah! Hubba hubba.
“Weekend duty was cancelled”
Cue Marvin Gaye.
“I’m definitely home for Christmas/your birthday/our anniversary”
Eeeeeek!!! Having to hold myself back here!
“Deployment date is postponed”.
Move over Christian Grey. Popeye is 50 shades of battleship grey sexier than you right now.
“I’ll be coming home early, I’ve got advanced leave”.
It’s like I can hear my clothes saying “the floor! The floor! We should be on the flooooooor!!!”
And then the best, sexiest, most leg shaking, bits tingling words of all…
“Homecoming date has been brought forward”
Holy shit Popeye!
What can I say…you had me at homecoming.
