A while back, the wife mocked me on social media for my geography skills. I pointed out that I didn’t have to have NORTH, SOUTH, EAST and WEST down pat…I was a passenger, not a sailor. And there were many who came to my defense. Either because they understand me or felt bad for me…
In actuality, I DO know the four directions and which is which. I choose to be a terrible navigator…yeah, that’s IT!!!
That apparently did not include knowing that Ft. Worth was WEST of Dallas. There. I said it. I don’t know WHAT I thought, only that I did not think it through when I said it out loud. “Isn’t Ft. Worth above and to the side of Denton?”
She made me stand in front of a map and point out where this stuff was. Never actually thought about it before, which is 90% of the conversations we have…
I thought I was going to have to take the wife to the ER to get her checked for a concussion from beating her head into a wall, and for oxygen from laughing at me so hard.
Tonight, this happened. While discussing a business trip she has planned.
Me: “aren’t they going to have events in the evenings while you are up there?”
wife: “up there? where? Where do you honestly think San Antonio is?”
Me: “you know, up there by Denton and Ft. Worth…”
For the record, I totally know where San Antonio is…it’s down there. I needed to remind her that she CHOSE to marry me…on her own.
Anything else is her fault.
