Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"
YOU'RE NOT NUTS!
Its just wild anticipation. When I was looking to buy a new truck, I noticed every truck on the highway. If I wanted a dodge ram, then I noticed every ram truck that went by. If you need a new entertainment center for the big screen TV, then the newspaper ads from the furniture stores catch your eye. Sailing is in the forefront of your mind, hence the preoccupation with the wind strength and direction.
