Men - Part I

"It's a guy thing." Translated: "There is no rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical."

"Can I help with dinner?" Translated: "Why isn't it already on the table?"

"Uh huh," "Sure, Honey," or Dear." Translated: Absolutely nothing. It's a conditioned response.

"It would take too long to explain." Translated: "I have no idea how it works."

"I was listening to you. It's just that I have things on my mind." Translated: "That girl standing on the corner is a real babe."

"Take a break honey, you're working too hard." Translated: "I can't hear the game over the vacuum cleaner."

"That's interesting, dear." Translated: "Are you still talking?"

  2. Two of the happiest marriages I have had the pleasure witness are my parent's and my Sister Lynda & BIL Rick's. My Dad and Rick both have the same philosophy and response when asked about the secret to a long and happy marriage - It's the ability to say "Yes, Dear" with the proper tone and inflection. If you can get that right, the bowing is optional. hahaha!

    I would tell to you how the male mind really works, but it would take too long to explain.

  18. I've used "Yes, Dear" a number of times over the years. I apparently never got the right tone and inflection, but I did use it ;)

  21. And then there's "Sure, I'll get to it later, hon" which means - I'm busy right now and I'll forget what you said and ask you again later.

  28. the "I was listening/things on my mind" response is not well received.

  29. When in doubt, faking an extended coughing fit is usually a better answer than anything you can actually say
