When cowboy boots and basketball shoes drive...

On lovely evening, Nate and I were driving to a store that he had never been to before. As we talked, I would interupt momentarily to tell him where to turn, afterwhich we would continue with our conversation.

As we were nearing our destination, I said "Turn right at the next light."
Nate smiled and started weirdly singing "Right at the light, right at the light. I'm gonna turn right at the light." While he was singing and making faces at me, he passed by the light and kept driving straight ahead.
"Nate, you were suppose to turn right at the light." I said.

He turned to me, looking annoyed and replied "You didn't tell me I was suppose to turn right at the light..." his voice trailed off as I looked at him like he was a loon and started mimicking his "Right at the Light" one hit wonder.
To this day he says he claims that he can't remember this incident, that's cool...that's cool.
"Right at the light, right at the light..."

Which light?? Great picture. Our problem is I don't know left from right unless I really thin k about it and I'm always turning wrong. Harry will say 'your other right' I frustrate him the hell out of him.

When I first moved to Georgia I found it amusing when I asked for directions they would say "Turn right at the "Red"light. I would smile and think to myself "If the light is green, should I keep going?"

I forgot to mention that I have a terrible sense of direction. Bob always says if I say "Turn right" he knows to turn left.
