I saw the link over at Technogypsy, but wanted to put this up, because it’s a really really, good description for how guys think differently than gals do, and probably the best description I have ever seen, period, for how guys think… all the way down to knowing that I need to imminently change tracks, but that I’m not yet at the switch to do so. This is how Happycrow defines “stress.”
I don’t have empty tracks as often as, say, Technogypsy does. Maybe I have two tracks, or a track-and-a-half: I actually used to be infamous back in colllege for “hopping back and forth between tracks,” and, sweet, now that I think about it, we actually used the same term. On the other hand, I also can’t run nearly as large a train as that guy can run on a regular basis, either. Goddamn. So, I think the metaphor is sufficiently flexible to handle personal differences within the sex, as well.
