I read someplace..who knows where anymore..that men’s minds were like boxes. They stay inside their boxes and finish up everything in the box before moving on to the next box. Women’s minds are like balls of wire..one thought runs into another and another and another..you get the picture.
I now understand that I have to program the box that Far Guy is in. If I want to do multiple things in town I say “I am going to town and I am going to the post office, the dime store and the grocery store and I might even stop at the antique shop or for a cherry coke downtown. If you want to go along you are welcome to come.” As long as he puts my complicated wire in his box..we get along just fine. The same thing goes for making a list. We make a list of things we need in town..his items are all neatly written down in the proper box..some of mine are there but some are still in my mind dangling on one of those wires. Sometimes on the way to town I add my things to his list.
I hear many women say that their husbands won’t stop to let them take photographs. Well then drive yourself and stop where you want. OR as you are leaving you could say “If I see something I want to photograph I would like to stop.” He will say “Yes” and put it in his box…easy peasy.
On the other hand, if men have only one thing on their mind… or in their box..you should not go along to town with them with all your complicated wires. Sometimes men should be left alone to conquer what is in their box. If they only need one thing to finish up a project and they are bouncing off of the four walls in their box because they want to get to the next box..then you should roll up your wire and not get involved.
Blogger now has a very complicated word verification system. I do not use the word verification. Blogger has a decent spam catcher and very few spam comments get through. If you use word verification on your blog you may be getting less comments from now on. It is a very frustrating system..the words are all wavy and have crazy numbers..often times it takes two or three tries to get it right…it is in my opinion a waste of time. If you are afraid of spam then enable comment approval. I have comment approval enabled on posts over three days old. To change your settings go to your Dashboard then Settings then Comments:)
