I’m Not a Sailor…

Sailing

But why are people with boats so uppity about their boats? Sure, I’m really happy that you have something that can take your mind off of your interminably boring day job – but at what point did I clue you in that I care about how long you spent polishing the deck on your hands and knees, only to have dirty shoes walk over it? I don’t think I ever asked you to tell me the funny story about when your brother messed up the jib with the sheet and it sent the boat on a near spill. And don’t think that because you keep asking me to go out on it, that it means that either I will – OR that it means you can keep telling me stories.

Because it doesn’t. How about we make a deal – when I want to hear something about the boat, I’ll ask you. Cool?
