Week Recap

I am still amazed at our ability and freedom to travel great distances at great speeds.

Yesterday, I ate a delicious box lunch in Los Angeles. Last night, I had a beer in a bar in the Chicago airport. (I waved to Logzilla to the East and Terry to the Northwest, and flew right over Amos on the way).

My next meal was a lunch in Charlotte today and I was very hungry without supper or breakfast.

The ability to do all of this activity in less than 24 hours is amazing to me.

Now I am back home with my beautiful wife and sweet dogs and I am very happy.

100 years ago, this story of travel would have taken months to tell. The best I could have done was travel by train and that would have been at least a month. Think of the beers and sandwiches I could have consumed in a month.

I played a most miserable golf game this afternoon and yet I thought about all the places I have been recently, all the new people I’ve seen in the past week.

Amazing fun, but it is good to be home.

On another note, from our friend Terry in St. Croix….

Words women use:

1.) FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five Minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome.

8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying screw you!

9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking, "what's wrong", for the woman's response refer to # 3.

Glad you are back home safe!

I am NOT reading this one to my husband. If I clue him in on our vocabulary, I'll lose the upper hand, and then what am I left with?

I'm glad you got back home safely!
