Five Marines Come Swim in the Waterworld Mermaid Lagoon

Being a mermaid, I’m a Navy girl – of course. But if I had to pick a second favorite branch of the U.S. military it would be the Marine Corps. Especially if they all look like the movie Jarhead. Mmmmmm. Sorry, what? I got lost in my happy place there for a second. 🙂

While I don’t have any Hollywood Marines (really who needs ’em), I have something even better. Five mystery Marines giving their answers to my guy think questions. Take it away fellas!

Scenario: Two Marines are at a bar.  One has just been dumped. His buddy is there for him, drinking as well, but trying to stay slightly more sober for when they need to leave.  What would the buddy possibly say to his friend who just got dumped?


Not the Marines interviewed. A Marine with Gulf Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, gives commands while conducting immediate-action drills during Lava Viper, Jan. 20.

Marine 1 – Hey man, there’s tons of women out there.

Marine 2 – How did it all get this far?

Marine 3 – It’s just a girlfriend, there’s many fish in the sea.

Marine 4 – What a bitch, she doesn’t deserve you. Let me buy you a drink.

Marine 5 – Let’s get fucking drunk. I think that chick is checking you out.

What would a Marine say when he sees his ex walk in with someone new?

Marine 1 – I would remain silent.

Marine 2 – I would talk to the guy and act like I didn’t know her.

Marine 3 – I wouldn’t say anything.

Marine 4 – I wouldn’t say anything.

Marine 5 – Hey dude, next time you kiss her and it tastes like freedom, you’re welcome.

Food, sex, sports: You can only have one. Which do you pick?

Marine 1 – Sex

Marine 2 – Sex

Marine 3 – Sex

Marine 4 – Sex

Marine 5 – Sex

What would a Marine say if his buddy is being a jerk to his girlfriend?

Marine 1 – Fucking knock it off man. You’re being a dumbass.

Marine 2 – Chill the fuck out.

Marine 3 – Now’s not the time. Cool off.

Marine 4 – You’re being a dick.

Marine 5 – You never take your turds out of a toilet and keep them, so why would she treat you any different.

Which is hotter, the uniform or the Marine inside?

Marine 1 – Marine

Marine 2 – Uniform

Marine 3 – Marine

Marine 4 – Marine

Marine 5 – Marine

A huge Waterworld Mermaid thank you goes out to my favorite Marine who made this interview happen. I’d give you a hug, but I know your wife and she could kick my tail fin from one end of the lagoon to the other – plus she loans me dresses. 🙂
The fun continues on my blog with more Q&A with our mystery Marines and five-book giveaway. Stop by and  find out how they keep the romance alive when they’re gone so much.

  1. Hello Avery Mermaid! Hi guys! Thank you for being you. Loved your interview over at Avery’s place as well.

    “Hey dude, next time you kiss her and it tastes like freedom, you’re welcome.”
    Whichever of you said that…great line!

    I’m just wondering, who will admit to being sweet and shy?

    1. I agreed with you, even before I saw your comment! Guys who say stuff like that are very sexy/cool! Kind of like a pirate! HaHa. When a guy acts like he doesn’t care, he becomes a challenge, she’ll be back!

  2. Good morning Avery Mermaid…*S*
    What a great interview on both sites, and I so love our military for all they are and what they do. I grew up in a military town, and live in one now, and once dated one when I was a young girl.
    Now living in a military town in Alaska I see them every day. I love being able to interact with them on a small way in my job, and I have a need to make them smile in those small moments when I can. It’s so worth it….*S*
    I love reading stories with our boys in them, and look forward to reading them even more…*s*
    Thank you!

  3. I love Marines! Thank you for bringing this to my attention Mermaid Carlene.

    Now, can I get single Marine #4’s number? 😉

  4. Awesome interview Mermaid sis! Although I’m a Navy girl–(Storekeeper –SK) many moons ago. I heart me some Marines! They were always so friendly in a macho kind of way. Hey, I always say if you have to be cocky–be a Marine! They have every right because they do a hell of a job defending our freedoms!

    Love ya guys!

    P.S. My oldest daughter is dating a Marine. I hope he treats her well, too.

  5. First off… I’ve been married to a Marine for almost 19 years and I know it’s not always an easy life. Thank you to each and every one of you guys for defending the freedoms we enjoy everyday! Ooh Rah!!!
    Also, thanks Avery and gentlemen for the great interview! It’s nice to have such manly men come by and swim in the Mermaid pond, now we know what kind of cocky dialog to write in our books! ;-D

  6. Avery,
    I used to work at a veteran’s service organization, and I have to admit that when convention time came, you could always tell a Marine out of uniform.
    Hmmm. That didn’t sound quite right. I meant in civilian clothes.
    They definitely are the cockiest of the lot, and with good reason.
