okay… I’m a writer. Mostly. At least that’s what I think of myself as as I’m brushing my teeth. Now… I’m not so much making a statement or saying something “is” here but, rather… want to toss a question out there about a tendency I believe I have noticed over the past 50 or so years and see what you all have to say about it.
It’s important that both males and females pipe in on this one or someone will be in a world of hurt!
Charlie worked his butt off today doing yard work. Pulling stumps. Raking leaves. Cleaning gutters. You know the guy. But when he comes inside and his wife or son or daughter or mother say “Wow… that looked like a whole lot of work. You must be exhausted!”
What is Charlie’s response?
There is no right or wrong answer here. But I do want to know what you, man and woman alike, believe his response would be.
Sally just ran to the store after dropping the kids off to school. She got a Starbucks on the way to the gas station and then went to the PO box to drop something off. In fact… Sally’s day was filled with things like that. Her day ended with picking up the kids and bringing them home to a meal she made for them before getting them ready for bed. The mother, Charlie, daughter or whoever says “How was your day, Sally?”
What is Sally’s response?
Again… no right or wrong answer here. I’m a writer… remember? I’m interested in things like this.
No fighting or name calling now. This is purely an intellectual exercise. I’ll read your responses and get back to blogging in a few days.
