I guess.

source
Sometimes I say to my wife, "Guess what?"

And she says, "What?"

I say "Guess."

And she says, "I don't know."

So I say, "Guess."

And she just looks at me.

And I say, "C'mon. Guess."

And she says, "No."

My wife can't guess. It's a real thing you know. Some people can't guess. Picture the support group for that eh? I, however, enjoy guessing. When people say to me, "Guess what?" I say random things like:
1. Whoa. It's like you just punched me in the frontal lobe.
2. They finally invented maple cough syrup? (Seriously, that should be a thing.)
3. Someone realized that the cure for world hunger is food?

Getting back to my wife. I don't know why she can't guess. She doesn't have time. She's like a broken toy. She's like a Jack in the box. Maybe a Jacklyn in the box? Or Jack Squat in the box?. Anyway, metaphorically speaking, instead of popping up she just opens the lid, stands, tilts her head to one side, and looks out the tops of her eyes at me.

I don't mean to say my wife isn't fun. She is. She's way more fun than I am. For example, she enjoys organized team sports. And people. She just can't guess, I guess. (See what I did there?)

(My wife doesn't much appreciate Phil Dunphy either. Can you believe it?)

It's almost like some people just want the information directly rather than playing a game to receive said information and may find that annoying. It's weird. I like guessing too. It's like a miniature game of Sherlock Holmes except you have literally no clues so it's just an opportunity for jokes.

Who could not like Phil Dunphy? He's so sweet and friggin' clueless.

I'm not a fan of the "guess what" game & I'm pretty sure my wife isn't either. My reason is mostly because there are too many variables to consider to just go around guessing with reckless abandon.

I always guess. In fact, I'd rather stand there and guess than find out the answer sometimes because teenagers.
