I want to meet the writers of the Geico commercials one day! These guys are hilarious! “If you’re a couple, you argue over directions. That’s what you do!” Ne’er were truer words spoken.
GPS has essentially eliminated such arguing in the Dixon household. I just listen to that lady in my phone and do what she tells me to do. Without GPS, I’d be sunk. I have always been awful in knowing which way to turn. Inevitably (if I’m not using GPS), I come to a stop sign and have to decide “Do I turn left . . . or right?” I am almost always WRONG! So my wife says, “Whatever direction is the first to enter your mind, do the opposite.”
That sounds like good advice. There’s one small problem. I’M OLD — AND I FORGET WHICH DIRECTION I THOUGHT OF FIRST!” That “do the opposite of what you thought of first!” only works with younger people.
