Misc Gender Differences
There are two kinds of people in the world:
Those who need closure. -- Mark Schmidt
- Woman's Work
- Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting
late. I think I'll go to bed." She went to the kitchen to make
sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls,
took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked
the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls
on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes into the dryer, put a load of clothes into
the wash, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the
newspapers strewn on the floor, picked up the game pieces left on the
table and put the telephone book back into the drawer. She watered the
plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned
and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and
wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip,
and pulled a textbook out from hiding under the chair. She signed a
birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote
a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse. Mom
then creamed her face, put on moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth
and trimmed her nails. Hubby called, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish and
put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked. She looked
in on each of the kids and turned out a bedside lamp, hung up a shirt,
threw some dirty socks in the hamper, and had a brief conversation with
the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm,
laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She
added three things to her list of things to do for tomorrow.
About that time, the hubby turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular "I'm going to bed," and he did.

- Instructive Quotes...
- If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an
infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even
considering if there is a man on base. --Dave Barry
He (the husband) was trying to help... (with the kids), but... well, you know...
If a man speaks in the forest and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

- Haircuts -- The Difference Between Men and Women
Woman2: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute!
Woman1: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she was gave me the
mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too fluffy looking?
Woman2: Oh God no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to get my hair cut like
that, but I think my face is too wide. I'm pretty much stuck with this
stuff I think.
Woman1: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could
easily get one of those layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I
was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent
my long neck.
Woman2: Oh - that's funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything
to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.
Woman1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your
shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms -
see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to
fit me so much easier.
