Was that a frustrated scream, or a long, contented sigh?

I'll bet it was a long contented sigh, and the little mad face is just a *red* herring to throw us off the trail. [Wink]

Addiew is married...to a guy...hence GMx's comment.

P.S. And I'm tired...so I'm abusing the ellipses.

I can't possibly comment right now because I'm biased at the moment, but we've ALL felt that way at one time or another!

Maybe this will bring a grin, Addiew:

FUNERAL PROCESSION:

A woman was leaving a convenience store with her morning coffee when she
noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby
cemetery.

A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50
feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman
walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance back, were
about 200 women walking single file.

The woman couldn't stand her curiosity. She respectfully approached the
woman walking the dog and said, "I am so sorry for your loss, and I know
now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like
this.

Whose funeral is it?"
"My husband's."
"What happened to him?"
The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."
She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"
The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband
when the dog turned on her."

A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two
women.

"Can I borrow the dog?"
"Get in line."

Men and women think differently. Evolutionarily, that's a good thing. Both sexes should just get over it.

Yes, but the frustration of trying to understand what the other sex is thinking and why can sometimes lead to screaming in frustration.

Well, luckily for you, I've come along to explain it all.

Men are simple beasts, they like food, sex, and shiny toys.
When a man want something, he'll ask for it, usually in a short sentence of simple words, for example
"I'm hungry" means he wants food.
"I'm horny" means he wants sex.
"I want to play (some computer game)" means he wants to play with his shiny toys

Women are also simple beasts, they like food, sex, and shiny toys, but their method of communication is far more sophisticated.
When women want something, they will drop subtle hints, sometimes verbal code, sometimes using body-language cues, sometimes via mental telepathy.
for example
"Isn't it getting dark early these days" means she wants food.
"Isn't it getting dark early these days" means she wants sex.
"Isn't it getting dark early these days" means it's a long time since you bought me a shiny toy.


Men, simple beasts that they are, take all 3 of the above as a comment on the advancing season, or an invitation to discuss the astronomical basis for variation in day length.

Meanwhile women, accustomed as they are to speaking in code, assume men do the same. So, his "I'm hungry" gets interpreted by her as "your ass looks very fat today" or "I'd like to have sex with that woman over there" or even "my hovercraft is full of eels".

Strangely, the more innocent, direct and obvious a comment, the more likely it is to be interpreted as some subtle insult.

She takes offence, he notices and asks "whats wrong?" to which she replies "nothing". There ensues an escalating exchange during which she continues to deny anything is wrong while getting more and more angry at him for failing to apologize for the 'insult'. Meanwhile, he knows she is angry, and gets more and more frustrated at her refusal to tell him why.


And so it continues, generation after generation.
Men still aren't mind-readers, and women are still mad at them for it.
'Twas ever thus, and ever shall it be.

I am now going to sing my "I Love Men" song in my best three-year-old-makin'-up-a-song singing.

[sing]

I love men.
Well, not men.
A man.
And he's WinterSolstice.
And he's patient.
He's got curly hair.
And a butt.
It won't quit.
He pisses me off
But it's okay.
Because I piss him off worse.
So it's not even.
Ever.
Laa laa laaaaaa!

[/sing]

[Big Grin] Jess

Just go buy Dr Laura's new book. Oh, and read it and follow the instructions. It doesn't help if it's only holding up the short leg of your coffee table.

If he's a decent man, he'll respond in kind. If he's a bum, well, that's the way it is and no matter what you do, he'll be a butt-monkey. If it offends one and one refuses to try to compromise, then one is a selfish brat.

druid ____ nice explanation but then after that you start getting into exceptions and clauses and if its a month after her mothers birthday this applies but if the moon is situated at this angle tonight it doesn't apply and so on.

I've been going thru a "Why are women so frustrating?" phase.

The annoying one that calls you 10 times a day is the one you have no intrest in. And the one that keeps saying "we should go out again sometime" but never commits to a day is the one you want.

Maybe it's the therory that you want what you can't have.

Ugh, Mac D - that's always a nuisance. Presently, I'm tackling the latter one, and I've pretty much given up. Maybe it's just a comedy of errors...she certainly doesn't hate my guts, but it seems damn nigh impossible to find a common time, and I'll be damned if I'm going to persist in queries.
