When you spend a lot of time around the military you pick up their lingo. Anyone care to guess the meaning of my title?
Obviously double digit is self explanatory meaning less than 100.
When someone is getting close to finishing their deployment the common saying is you are "getting short."
While not maybe the nicest way to imply being short, a midget definitely fits that description.
So...double digit midget means.....drum roll please....as of today, I have less than 100 days left in Iraq!!!! When I become a single digit midget I'll be very excited indeed =)
