Are men and women ever really on the same page?
She sees that special look in his eyes and knows that he’s sitting there picturing the first time they kissed. She reaches out and gently touches his hand. “John,” she whispers. “Tell me what you’re thinking.”
The corners of his mouth lift in a tiny smile. “That last putt on the eighteenth. I came so close.”
Yes, men are preoccupied with keeping score. So if this kind of behavior happens between you and your man — try to show some understanding. After all, it’s not his fault. It’s old genetic programming that goes back to the days of the Vikings. If you wanted to enter Valhalla you had to have a large member and beat guys at golf.
That’s right. You probably didn’t know this, but ancient Norwegian Vikings traveled the world in search of new lands to make into golf courses. True story. Eric The Red shot an amazing nine below par at the scenic yet extremely treacherous Odin’s Bluff Country Club.
Eric could drive, pitch, putt and was hung like a bull moose. He and his band of brave men were ambitious conquerors and builders. Their plan was simple. Sail over to the British Isles, slay the men, impregnate the women and . . . build golf courses. Especially in Scotland.
So what you do think about all this? Does your man have Viking tendencies?
Sure he does.
