Gotta Stir the Pot

Inspired by listening to one of my DD's talking to her mother about "cute" beads:

The difference between men and women:

Jane and Jim are walking through the "Home" department of any big-box store. Jane stops at miniature refrigerator magnets, as one has caught her eye. She says to Jim; "Oh look honey, it's a baby potty chair. Isn't it just so cute?"

Jim replies; "Jane, it's a toilet. And I don't care how small it is, a toilet is never never going to be cute."

And as Forrest Gump would say, "...And that's all I'm going to say about that."

As far as this example is concerned I think the difference between men and women is somewhat blurred!

Another profound difference between men and women: This is simplistic but let's assume we all categorize our thoughts into neat little imaginary boxes.

Men have a box unique only to them labeled the "NOTHING" box.

It is unfortunate that women do not possess this box because it is the source of much insomnia since women, in general, are unable to turn off their thoughts.

Ladies, when you ask your significant other, or any man, "What are you thinking?"
If they answer "Nothing," take that at face value because they are in their "nothing box." When a man goes to sleep at night he simply goes to his "nothing" box and falls quickly and soundly to sleep.

And, ladies, again, if you ask your significant other or any man for his opinion on a particular matter and he responds "I don't have one," he really-really doesn't because he is in his "nothing" box again.

Works for me......

I've never heard it put like that but it works for me. SO does not understand when I don't have an opinion on something. "I don't care" is never an acceptable answer to her.

Andy, women are relentless with communicating, aren't they? It is the same with my wife of 42 years. I repeatedly tell her (and I have an opinion on just about everything) "If I have an opinion or answer I'll tell you; Otherwise, don't press the point." {:-D]

Mrs Hoot is always asking for my opinion about this or that.
Sometimes, I am sure that my opinion might lead to a disagreement.
Whenever that happens, I recall that audio clip that Arlo used to play on FM 99 way back in the day:
"If you can't say nothing nice, don't say nothing at all."

Men really need only two phrases to make it work:

1) Yes Dear.

2) I'm sorry Honey.

Everything else is mostly fluff. However, an "I love you" fluff works wonders too.

Definitions:

1) Yes, Dear = I don't agree with you at all but I am tired of arguing about it, so you win.

2) I'm sorry Honey = I'm sorry, OK? So get off my back and leave me alone.

Certain assumptions have been made about the tone and inflections of the above statements.
