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)
