the lost art of map reading


Newly licensed Mac, was telling The Hubby and I about some of her driving experiences last night.


She doesn't have Tony's gift of direction and got pretty lost the other night.




"Maybe you should just take my GPS" I suggested.


"Maybe you should just keep a map in your car." The Hubby said.


"A map!?" Mac laughed "Nobody uses a map anymore! Reading a map is a lost art form."


The Hubby and I looked at each other with the "is this kid serious?" look on our faces.


"Besides," she continues "I don't even know which direction to point one of those things!"




I'm pretty sure I know where she got her sense of direction...

have a great day!

She sounds about as directionally challenged as I am.....it is confusing which way to point it if you don't know your north from your south (which I can never figure out)I'm a little sorry to say that I totally get where she is coming from.

Now I'm off to go find a map reading class!

Kids and technology. I know young-uns who don't know how to use a typewriter.

I actually agree with Mac. Maps and I do not get along well. I am barely friends with my GPS, because I just don't trust her...

Thank goodness my boys got their sense of direction and map reading skills from Hubs. I have none of either.

Remind your daughter that Lake Michigan is always East. That's how I find my direction when I visit the chitown area...and then I must remember that the big body of water changes direction when I return home to MI.

peace,
