Reason #481 . . .

why I'm surprised men even live with women . . .

Me - blah blibbity blah blah . . . wah wah wah . . . drone drone drone . . .

Pup - in and out of earshot . . . in room and then back out of room . . .

Me - laughing . . .

Pup - back in room with me; laughing

Pup - You know, I left the office, went into the utility room, came back, and you were still talking.

Me - blank stare

Me - laughter

Me - Yeah, but you'd be so sad if I didn't live here and drive you insane every day.

Pup - Maybe . . .


Then I told him to get the hell out and go to work.

He left.

I'm still laughing.

LMAO... ya, my husband always walks out of the room too. And then I say, "HEY, are you listening to me" and he says yes he is, but does not come back into the room... HA HA HA HA. We women are soooo verbose.

I think he just stands around the corner and rolls his eyes at me, but since I can't see him I have no proof. LOL

Mine can be in the room with me and still not hear a word I'm saying! I think he suffers from selective hearing loss!

I'm convinced it's all about selective hearing -- they only hear what they want to. Their brains are trained to filter out the necessary, ignore the rest.

Definitely a gender thing.

My husband was relating a text my son sent him, and he ended it by saying, "lots of laughs," to which I corrected him and said, "You mean 'laugh out loud,' to which he replied, "No, YOU might laugh out loud." And then he imitated my uproarious laughter.

And then I LAUGHED OUT LOUD (and long).

Deborah, ain't it great that we can laugh at ourselves, with or without them?

I hate when that happens!

I read recently that woman say 10,000 words daily compared to men saying 3,000 words.

I say we are endlessly fascinating and they should listen.

Or we need more girlfriends.
