News Flash and Post Correction - I'm no Don Juan on a Motorcycle!

My wife came up to me yesterday and said "Hey, you're no Don Juan." I replied "So what else is new?" Then taking full advantage of an opportunity to keep my ego in check, she said "At the end of your last post you said you were chasing windmills like Don Juan, maybe you meant 'Cervantes' Don Quixote, he's the one who chased windmills and I think you're more like him."

Oops, my wife was referring to my post "The Wild Hogs Movie, Harleys, and My Own Mid-Life Crisis", where I inadvertently replaced the eccentric old man Don Quixote with the storied lover Don Juan. She went on to say "I think what you wrote was a 'Freudian Slip,' you probably think subconsciously you're Don Juan."

The beauty of the Blog format is it's possible to go back and fix mistakes, even on already posted material. So for those who've already read the post in question, I went back and fixed the error.

My wife was right of course, there is a lot more Don Quixote in me than Don Juan. Just don't tell her I said so.

People ask me sometimes if I write with an audience in mind. The answer is yes. She's still sleeping upstairs....!

My wife provides a welcome mirror for my ego. I'm lucky to be able to share a life with her.

Tilting at windmills.... that's a long topic.
