Mynx ask a multipart question that I actually really though about and will attempt answer. The question: Why won't guys ever ask for directions, call a tradesman or read instructions? I am guilty of two of the three. Directions...the genetic role of the male is hunter...whether it be the hunter of a T-Rex or that special new resturant you want to try...I think we feel like a failure if we can't "sniiff" out the route on our own. I do think most women would be surprised at how much more willing a man is to ask for directions if he is alone. I am historically guilty of not asking for directions...until I got my first GPS...now, life is good!
Calling a tradesman is a little different...it's the whole Alpha-male thing...we hate for another guy to realize we can't do things a guy is "supposed" to be able to do. I am NOT guilty of this one...I have paid out too much money over the years for someone to fix a "project" that I screwed up!!! It's a tough hurdle to overcome but pay twice as much to get something done right enough times and even men tend to accept reality.
Not reading instructions....that's an easy one...we actually think (justified or not) that we're smart enough to figure stuff out :-) I am sooooo guilty of this one. I have convinced myself that it is part of the devine plan of the universe that every piece of unassembled furniture must be put together backwards at least once to have any true value!
lyndylou also is looking for some pearls of wisdom....unfortunately, she'll have to settle for me :-) She asks Why do men have to flick through all the tv channels constantly? That's a stumper! I don't watch much TV so I'm not sure if I do that...I know I must have control of the remote...it's a King of the Castle thing :-) Maybe it's just ADD???
She also wants to know Why do they think it is cool or funny to fart at will, any time, any place, anywhere? I am NOT guilty of this one but probably only because I don't have the God-given talent of being able to fart at will :-) Why do we think it's funny and cool....because regardless of our age or station in life, we all have a 10 year old boy still locked inside of us.
lyndylou has seen pass my facade and cut into my soul with the last question And what is this thing they have about gadgets? OK, you've found me out...I am a gadget-aholic!!! I don't understand the addiction but I suffer from it daily...as I type this on my desktop...a laptop is less than 12 inches from my right elbow and an iPad is about 6 inches from my left hand...there is another laptop in my bedroom...I have 3 flatscreen HD TVs...I own 6 Xbox consoles....and I live alone!!!!! Someone please help me!!!! I'd join gandgets anonymous...but I spend so much time playing with my gadgets that I'd never be able to squeeze in the meetings.
OK...now it's my turn...I have a question for all you lovely ladies. I've read a number of times in different publications, heard in interviews, seen in polls, and been told by women that one of the key qualities women want in a man is a sense of humor. If this is true....why do women always end up sleeping with the bad boys or dark, emotionally troubled guys instead of the funny ones?
Hope y'all have a great night and I sooooo enjoy your company!!!
