Well, not really
You see, I came up with the tribe name, because I said so, after thinking back to a time (very long ago) when I would ask my children to do something. As usual, children are propelled by human nature to challenge any authoritarian request, even the most simplest of pleas. I would try to explain why I wanted them to do, whatever it was I had asked them to do, logically and practically. When that was to no avail, I would throw up my hands and exclaim, “Because I said so!!” I have run out of explanations. Just do it.
Because I said so is kind of like a finality in this tribe. I have presented all the information I have come up with on a particular topic, exhausted my options, come to my conclusions and now I am finished….because I said so. No dictatorial vibes here. It’s too exhausting to be a dictator. Really, take my word for it…
Motor-Head University 101
Let me start with a disclaimer here. I am not a motor-head. I want to be one but for now I am still a student reading, studying, and listening to those of you far more qualified than I on all things car related. Drive-tribe is part of my daily tutorial. So before you shut this article off, what am I going to talk about?
It’s Not All About Me..
I need you. I need your knowledge, expertise and input. I’m hoping for a substantive discourse on car related themes. Yes, I have some ideas to present. Things I’ve wondered about, seen or would like to research. I always approach things with a sense of humility and a spirit of inquiry. A wise man once said, when one ceases to learn, one ceases to exist. I truly believe that, but don’t ask me who the person is that said it. I’m not sure. All a part of my memory retention issues I have.
Do I Have To?
No, I obviously can’t make you participate. Remember, this is not a dictatorship. But truly, I would like to hear your “because I said so” after you share your ideas. It’ll be good. I promise I’ll do my part.
Because I said so….Thanks, Karen
