A Man’s Brain Can Be A Lost Horizon

by Ken Carpenter

My story today is from 2003, and it tries to make a mockery of the male tendency to refuse to ask directions. In truth, many people who give directions are so clueless they can cause a guy to become even more lost than he was to begin with. So reducing a guy to plead directions from a possibly incompetent guide accomplishes little more than pacifying the driver’s tooth-gnashing female passenger.
There are exceptions to the rule of course. Certain levels of frustration can push some of the most stubborn of the male species to request directions.
In most cases though, nothing can be bad enough to trigger a man’s faith in his built-in brain compass to fail. Absolutely nothing.
