Men & Women Compared! 02
A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes out to the store and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half a lime and a soda. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout counter, his cart is packed tighter than the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.
When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, then slip on Reebok sneakers. She will carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later, she will kick them off because her feet are under the desk. A man will wear the same pair of shoes all day.
Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do his laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the Laundromat. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the Laundromat. This is a myth perpetuated by re-runs of old episodes of "Love, American Style."
Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and soccer games and romances and best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
Q: Why do women make better soldiers?
A: Because they can bleed for a week and not die.
If women don't fool around, and men do fool around, who are the men fooling around with?
Understanding the Other Sex
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
Women and Men, Wine and Grapes
Men are like a fine grape:
- They are best kept in the dark.
- They can't handle too much heat.
- They perform best when they are stepped on.
Women are like the wine that comes from the grape:
- They are sweet, vigorous, and full-bodied when they are young.
- They don't age well without preservatives.
- They become sour and vinegary if they remain bottled up.
