Well Excuse Me

“Honey, did you lock the garage door?” I really didn’t know how to answer. But a “wise” husband never lets one like this go. “Well, technically, the latch is thrown so the knob will not turn, but the door is standing wide open”. Her reply: “Well, technically, one with one’s head up that narrow passage, means the same as an ostrich burrowing its head in the sand. But untechnically, I don’t think the ostrich would agree.” ~//~ Nov. 08 2010 Charles Henderson 3 rd in Thvia's Shetley's "analogy" contest

Got a great laugh from your ostrich analogy. A lot of men seem to be afflicted with ostrich syndrome, Charles. My sympathies to your wife. LOL Love, Carolyn

A fantastic analogy- ostrich is quite well known for burrowing its head in the sand as if nothing would happen, Charles
