Sometimes, when my mind is on overload, I really enjoy the fact that driving lets me pause and get some good thinking done. Often, I come up with my best ideas in this way (and huzzah to Jott for allowing me to capture these so easily). Today, however, my mind was so blotto (translate: fried, frazzled, ready to blow), that I was just daydreaming. And on the way home from taking my son to drum practice, I hit upon this amazing, and most likely completely correct (;-) theory.
The question at hand: "Why do guys always quote movie lines?". Now except in strange instances, this is purely a guys' domain. Usually, but not always, it drives the girls crazy. Not a good crazy, mind you (like when I do my Antonio Banderas impression), but crazy, crazy. But I think I know why we do this. This skill, like many of our lovable traits, hearkens back to our hunter roots. Early man needed to be a proficient hunter in order to survive, and one aspect of this proficiency was the ability to mimic animal sounds. Sometimes it was the lusty moans of a mate. Other times it was the cry of an injured animal meant to lure the hunter's prey. In any case, a skilled hunter was well-versed in the ways of mimicry. This adaptation, long encoded into our DNA through natural selection and survival of the fittest, still manifests itself today in modern man. And that, my friends, is why guys quote movies.
Ah...that's some good thinking for the day. :-)
