The Can of Worms I Opened

BlueEyeCrying Wow!
Women really hate the third #1 of ‘The Man Rules’. [Please remember that I did not write this list – some guy did…]

I received comments ranging from ‘men need to learn the difference between real and crocodile tears’, to the scientific explanation of differences in the crying reflex in men and women.

Otherwise, most of the woman AND men thought the Man Rules list was accurate – as did I.

Thank you to everyone who responded  🙂   I now have input for “The Woman Rules” – #1 will express our feelings about crying! BTW, The Woman Rules will be in a properly formatted sequentially numbered list. These rules will not be shouted by using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.

Please submit your thoughts on other ‘rules’ that women generally live by. I am drawing a blank here, people!

Thanks in Advance!!


Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says


This sign was SO true of me. I spent years trying to figure out what my dates/boyfriends/crushes/husband was thinking. Did they love me? Were they mad at me? Did they think I needed to lose weight? Did they wish I was like so-and-so? Arrrgggh!

Hubby finally explained to me that men did not think about their relationships. They thought about “real” stuff. Like guns, trucks, tools and things they watched on Cops. They counted on women to tell them what they do or don’t like. It doesn’t even occur to them to worry about it. Men are content as long as we aren’t complaining. Then he gave me an example.

“You know how you always ask me how you should get your hair done?” he asked.

“Yeah. You never give me your opinion – you just say ‘however you want, dear’.”

“That’s because my answer would hurt your feelings.”


“Because I honestly don’t give a rat’s ass how you wear your hair – I want YOU to be happy with it so I don’t have to listen to cussing and whining.”

“What do you mean?”

Hubby then put his hands on his hips and made his voice high-pitched and prissy,  he rolled his eyes, exclaiming – “Oh DAMMIT, stupid hair”. Then he made a pouty face (that was kinda cute) and stomped his foot and yelled – “I HATE my hair!”

I have to admit that his mimicry was spot on.

Next time you gals start ‘worrying’ about what your man is thinking, just stop yourself. Chances are – he’s not.
