For Fathers Day Mrs RC got me an excellent card. It said that I was allowed to be right for 24 hours!
What an astonishing gift!
You see, I am usually wrong about things - you name it - if Mrs RC and I have had a discussion about it and have had different opinions, I will turn out to be the one that was wrong. In 24 years I have been right 6 times (yes I have been counting) and still have a couple of years to go before I am due to be right again :-)
Not that it bothers me! I know guys who really hate being wrong to the point where it is destructive to their relationships. This is, to my mind, ridiculous! When did macho pride become more important than matrimonial bliss? Hm, thinking on that one, I think I got the question the wrong way around! Macho pride has always been a problem!
So, did I milk my "rightness" to the max?
There is something to be said for knowing that you are wrong, a sort of comforting security - being right makes me feel nervous...
