Yes, but in a way that's worse. The mindsets are so built-in that the
possibility of thinking Solophile knows as much or more about gear as
Fireball doesn't exist.

Given our ages, conditions, and relationship, there is no way my husband
would consider this flirtatious behavior, but I would bet the questions would
still be directed to him.

And I 'spect it would be better all around not to comment on Paddler's notion
that the other men may have feared that Fireball's instincts would "have

investment before.
