Boy I think I was witness to the worst kayaking duo in history this weekend at Cooper Lake in the Cle Elum area. Unfortunately, one-half of that duo was my beloved girlfriend. Patience was practiced, but it’s always so much easier when you’re having fun!
39. DO learn that patience is truly a virtue. I can’t tell you how many times I have told myself, or told my better half, that I would have done ‘that thing’ differently. Women will always think differently then men, and hence we dudes need to learn to grab that other pair of spectacles and view the world through their eyes every so often. The task we know exactly how to execute to perfection may not be something they have ever done before. So, strap on those teaching boots boys and tell her how to execute, in a nice manner of course.
39. DON’T be a drill sergeant who is constantly berating your better half. Like I just said, women view things, and hence do things, differently than us dudes, more often than not. That’s why we need patience, imagine you making some crazy concoction in the kitchen, you’ll probably have a few mistakes, so allow for her to do the same when launching the boat, or kayaking the lake, or helping repair something around the home or in the ride. WARNING: this may mean you have to pay for some mistakes out of wallet, because her mistake resulted in damage, but she’ll appreciate your understanding, and hopefully learn from the mistake. If she doesn’t learn, than she is banished from any such activity.
Shazam! That does it dudes. Follow these simple tips and I promise your lady is going to view you as a man worth her time. And isn’t that what we want?
Same time, same spot next week. Mondays 720pm on The Garage and right here on 88.1 The Burg’s blog. Until then….stay Dastardly dudes!
