My wife told me this morning that I’m very difficult to live with. I have no reason to doubt her. She’s unhappy because I got lost walking in the neighborhood the other day and she was concerned about me.
I explained to her that I was totally safe. I had my cell phone. If I’d been willing to stop walking I could’ve found my location and a map on my phone, or I could’ve called her. Or even called 911.
I wasn’t willing to stop walking; that would’ve defeated the purpose and seemed weak.
But getting lost was actually a blessing because I went twice as far as my goal!
My wife says I’m stubborn.
Can you believe that?
