In case you're curious, current estimates are that two-thirds of the world's orangutans are located on Borneo, that the worldwide orangutan population may have dropped by as much as one-half in the last ten years alone, and that David Hasselhoff is on the honorary board of directors of Orangutan Foundation, International. Just thought that last one was interesting. Anyway, they're all kinds of endangered, so if you think those guys were cute, hop on over and give one of them a hand.
Millie and Chuck are still working on the Detour, and she has piled the wheelbarrow entirely too high and made it too heavy, so he wants her to take one of the bunches off. "Chuck," she says disbelievingly, as if she has any idea how heavy it is, considering that he's the one trying to lift it. Rather than taking the offending bunch off the wheelbarrow like he's asking, she just rearranges it, which of course does nothing to alleviate how heavy it is. "You have to take it off," he repeats. Millie! Is! Furious! "You are so stubborn," she says angrily, despite the fact that he is the one who has to move it, so how can she presume to say whether it's too heavy or not? Not to mention the fact that she is being at least as stubborn as he is in this situation. It's absolutely nonsensical, which is why I think she's just losing it. When they've wheeled the bunches to the truck, she says, "You go, you go, I'm going to toss them to you, you go." Eek -- they're full of prickers, and they weigh a ton! Toss them? Sensibly enough, he tells her no, not to toss them, so she hands him one, which he puts on the truck. The next one, however, she attempts to toss again. What is with the tossing? That isn't even faster. "Millie, do not toss those," he says, as she again puts her hands on the wheelbarrow because she is so frustrated with him. I think that among other things, she hasn't paid attention to how difficult it is on his end to heave them up onto the truck, so she hasn't noticed that you can't do it quick-quick-quick like she wants to. Chuck voices over that "the butting heads" concerns him as far as the underlying relationship. The thing is that that part didn't even look like butting heads -- it just looked like her being a pain. I have to say, they talk a lot about both being really stubborn, but usually what they're talking about look like situations where she's ordering him around and he's not compliant enough quickly enough. I'm sure he can be annoying in a hundred ways, but lately, he's seemed pretty reasonable, and she's seemed really obnoxious.
