Dinner table conversation:
Danny (15): There was another girl fight at school today
Me: No kidding. That is terrible. Wasn’t there one last week, too.
Danny: Yeh, the principal actually had to push me aside to get to the fight to break it up.
Me: What were you doing there?
Danny: Trying to get a good look
My husband: EVERYONE loves a girl fight!
Me: (typical fire shooting out of my eyes step away from the children look across the table) You ARE kidding me, right?
Danny: I am usually with you on things mom, but dad is right, EVERYONE loves a girl fight!
This would fall under the category of me thinking that my husband is nuts until I began to tell the story. All of my male friends gave me the look like, “I know how I am supposed to react as an evolved non- neanderthal man in the year 2008, but really Amy, EVERYONE loves a girl fight”. I am not talking about the macho, sexist sterotypical, man’s man type guys. I am talking, almost (well actually all) of them. We were at a beautiful upscale affair on saturday night and there is my husband talking to two of our more sophisticated intelligent guy friends and I walk over to hear, “Amy, we are sorry but EVERYONE loves a girl fight.”
I suppose I will end this topic with the other amazing phenomenon that I have noticed amongst men of all walks of life. The answer to every question you ask a man can always be answered with…
“A little head would be nice”
“Honey, can you take out the garbage?
“Sure, but a little head would be nice first?”
“Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?”
“As a matter of fact, a little head would be nice”
“My family is coming over, can you make sure there is gas in the grill”
“Your family? Well, I would think a little head would be nice first”
To quote Nana Julia “Men…”
(I believe the second half of that sentiment was …they should all hang from one rope)

Isn’t it nice that you have the answer even before delivering the question? In the interest of saving time, why not just perform the act and then point your man in the direction of what you want done. Brain (as well as everything else) is soft at that point…you could probably get the whole house painted in a weekend if you have enough chapstick….doesn’t the end justify the means?
Tug, you always have the best comments.
you mean you know evolved non- neanderthal men in the year 2008…would you introduce me to some?
It’s a pretty effective way to answer a question, although it could prove problematic if used to often and out of a relationship – especially if you’ve been pulled over by the Police or answering a direct superior at work.
haha. timing and location are everything
