Wifely Words of Wisdom

So there I was last Sunday evening, dozing on the sofa and groaning about my aches and pains after a hard (and extremely enjoyable) weekend of Laser sailing, and the lovely Tillerwoman gave me the benefit of her wifely wisdom on the subject.

What do you think she said?

a) You're too old for this game. At your age the most energetic thing your Dad did was an occasional game of pool down the pub. It's time you started acting your age.

b) I have no sympathy. You know you're going to feel like this after you go sailing so why do you do it?

c) If you actually used that hiking bench and weights down in the basement maybe you wouldn't feel so bad after sailing.

d) Shut up and come to bed.

e) You should sail more.

f) All of the above.

G. You should dump the Laser dear one and get a Force 5. They're easier to sail, no death rolls you know. ;)

However worded like this...

Shut up. If you have enough energy to go LASER sailing then you have enough energy to... ;)

OK. Thanks for the overwhelming response to this quiz from my vast audience of three readers.

Joe - I guess your answer was predictable. Have a fun summer with the Force 5. They are a good training boat for when you want to step up to Laser sailing.

OG and CA -- hmmm, so that's how women's minds work? Who would have thuk it?

But you're all wrong. My dear lady's advice to me was that I should "sail more". Do you think one wife in a hundred even would give this answer? I think I married the right girl.

I guessed C, but I see that I'm wrong. I'm just getting back into Laser sailing after giving it up in college (graduated last Spring) and I love your blog. I've been working my way from the beginning to the present, and I'm at this post so far.

Keep up the great work. I'll comment more when I get to the present (future?).
