First of all, Mrs. G — remember alllll the times at MDP when I REMAINED sitting at your kitchen table, and said, “I’ll call him AFTER this game.” Remember?!? (don’t you dare pull your “I have a bad memory” excuse out now!)
Had a fun drive back. How could it not be fun, with McTom in the driver’s seat?! At one point, I asked him flat out, “Why don’t guys like to stop and ask directions?” He gave me a very straightforward answer which completely cracked us up. And Nikki’s response totally cracked up any part of us that wasn’t cracked up yet! So I figured I’d share the revelation with you, in case anyone else was pondering this guy question also.
McTom said, “Well, it’s like this.
A) Guys like adventure. Not knowing where you are or where you’ll end up appeals to that side of them.
B) It’s how guys learn their way around. Get lost, and you’ll find your way out, and know the way after that.
C) We’re stubborn.”
Nikki, sitting in the back seat, didn’t skip a beat. His last words were hardly out of his mouth, and she piped up with, “Should “C” be “A”?????!”
