I'm reading a book called YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND, by Deborah Tannen--about the differences in the ways men and women communicate. It's fascinating, scary stuff, let me tell you. She says that men see everything in regard to power and hierarchy, while women see everything in terms of connecting and relationships. No news there, I guess, but when she starts showing examples, it gets scary-weird.
Anyway, I'm not even halfway through it, but I'm hoping it will explain the situation below. In the meantime, I'm asking you, my fellow bloggers, to weigh in. Let's see if the response lines up along genders.
Biggy is addicted to the SORBA site (it's a mountain biking thing), especially the forum. Imagine a bunch of grown men chatting it up about forks and hardtails--titillating! Anyway, I saw that he was bragging about how he NEVER falls, so I asked, "What about the spill you took last weekend, the one I just happened to photograph?" To which he responded, "That wasn't really a fall."
So I ask you: FALL OR NO FALL?
