My family and I recently enjoyed an incredible adventure in Costa Rica. We were on one of those tours and our hotel rooms were all based on double occupancy. We couldn't imagine that our 17-year old son and 15-year old daughter would want to share a room, so the boys roomed together and we girls did the same. It was all going swimmingly…and then, near the end of the trip, this little exchange occurred:
As I'm getting dressed one day, my daughter says, with pure exasperation, "I don't know how dad stands it."
Now, I will admit I'm not the easiest person to share a bathroom with, so I thought she was referring to something along those lines. Turns out I was wrong…very, very wrong.
When I inquired, "You don't know how dad stands what?" she replied, "You. Naked."
I didn't have to guts to tell her that not only did her father "stand me naked" he actually liked it…very, very much. And I really didn't have the guts to say the very first thing that came to my mind, which was, "Take a good, long look sister…this is your future!"
