Edification

EdificationRachel pushed her chair back from her desk and stretched. "I thought you were having lunch with the boys."

Dawn sat at her desk and opened her takeout. "I was until I found out the cricket's on and every Australian in a five mile radius has descended on the local."

Looking up from her lunch, Dawn caught Rachel's dreamy expression. "And don't get that Mmm... Australians... look on your face either. The moment the game started, they all started talking like bloody Steve Irwin. If I heard one more bewdy, mate, heads would've rolled."

"Wouldn't that be a public service?"

At first I thought it was a comment on differing cultures and accents.

Then I realized, no -- it was a comment on men. :-)

Australian men and sport. But then Dawn did return from the pub on her own, so it looks like something of a culture that crosses borders.

When it comes to men and sports, the names and accents may change, but the attitudes remain the same. It's proof that people are the same everywhere, although that's not necessarily a good thing.

The muse was getting a bit stumped on this until it went sideways. You're on challenge lists long enough and they start to get repetitive. That and I don't see why they all insist on running the same themed holiday challenges. Most annoying.

Men! Who'd have 'em hey?

Okay so there are one or two notable exceptions...

To be honest I don't have that problem - except with the children. I am also the one who knows how to set the DVD recorder.

Men and sport... *shakes head* So true. The minute any game starts, they're so into it. I like watching professional sports, but with a few exceptions, I'm not as enthused or into it.

I don't have a problem with playing sport or watching your mates play, but when it comes to professional sport it becomes more about money and less about fun and is pointless. Apparently I was born in the wrong country, as beliefs like that are likely to get me lynched here.
