The Lost Thing a Man ll ill Do Is Ask Someone lf here Something Is By Erma Hornbeck Speaking of stereotypes, where does it say that a woman was born to read road maps? For generations, it has been assumed that the moment a man climbs behind the wheel of a car, the glove compartment door opens automatically, dispensing a road map into the waiting hands of the “little woman.” It happened tc me right after the wedding when we climbed into the car to embark on our honeymoon. The glove compartment door snapped open depositing a grease-stained road map into my lap (I knew it was old when I noted that the six southern state's were labeled The Confederacy.) “I don’t read road maps,” I said. WhatffH Meanf My new husband looked at me like I had just announced I slept in a tree hanging from six toes. “Whatya mean, you don’t read road maps?” “I get sick and throw up if I read when a ear is in motion.” “So, why didn t you tell me this before we were married?’ “What was all that jazz about sickness and health?” I snappy “Big deal! You better worry about how we’re going to get to (loose Fork, Mich.” “Couldn’t we stop and ask?” Now, that’s the first revelation. A woman soon finds out that is the last thing a man does I have seen my husband bite his necktie in half in a rage. I have seen him reading the moss on the tree in the middle of the Everglades. I have seen him going the wrong way on a one-way express shouting, “Same to you, fella,’’ but he never stops and asks Strand fierelatiam The second revelation is that no matter how expert you become in reading road maps, he refuses to believe one word of what you are saying He once argued that the Colorado river wasn’t. It was just a low spot that had been irrigated. That the New Jersey turnpike was built in a circle and that I purposely routed him through New York City at 5 p iii to punish him for not making a kidney stop all day long In an effort to Help Stamp Out Sexism, I recently suggest-ed to my husband that we trade roles So I drove the car and he read the road map You know something? It blew another myth Grown men do too cry . . . out loud, with their head in the no-draft . . . while chewing a road map into little pieces. Copyright IV/4.
