Fun with words!

I recently returned to work after a year abroad with the US Army Reserve.  On my first day back, a visitor from headquarters took me aside.
"How are you?" he asked, looking concerned.  "Do you feel alright?"
"I'm fine," I replied, nonplussed.
'Great!" he said.  "I heard that you were away from work for a year because you are in a wreck."
It took a minute before it dawned on me what he meant.  "Iraq," I said finally.  "I have just come back from Iraq."

During a customary introduction parade at our military hospital, the general was making enquiries.  Reaching a newly commissioned lady doctor, he said, "I understand they teach you a lot in college nowadays."
"Yes," she replied.  "At first it was very regular but later it subsided."
Hearing that, the general looked confused but said noting more.  Later, when asked to clarify, the lady blurted out, "Teach?! Oh God, I heard it as tease..."
