Men are from Mars, Women are down to earth...

Why are men and women so bad at communicating?  Think about it, we're raised the same way, we learn the English language, and we both learn the best way to let someone know about something is to tell them.

Yet men and women fight all the time because they're on a completely different page.

The reason I didn't blog yesterday is because I literally didn't have any time to.  I was cleaning the bathroom in my sports bra and shorts straight from a run when Mike came home from work and said, "You don't look like you're ready to go out."  Um, excuse me?  "Yeah, you know, we have tickets to that breast cancer fundraiser.  I bought you a $25 ticket for all-you-can drink at the bar Cans in Bucktown."  (A breast cancer awareness event at Cans..catchy, huh?)

This is the first I was hearing about this.

I had no make-up on, no contacts in and I smelled like a gym/bathroom cleaner.  How is it we live together and he never once mentioned this?

Me?  I went to the bar with a ponytail.  I guess it's one of the luxuries of already being engaged.

P.S. Did you see WISH-TV's smokin' hot meteorologist Angela Buchman is now a follower?  Me?  I'm a big deal.

  1. ...I always say that a large, shared desk calender, listing all "events" in both persons lives, is the easy way to handle these "issues"..
    No surprizes, plenty of time to plan.
    When men talk, if they talk at all, they talk about facts....without any personal thoughts or revealing how we "feel" about anything.
    The world doesn't care how we feel about anything, were just supposed to do what were told and keep our mouth shut. (right?)
    No matter the subject, all the words women say equal to how they "feel" about (any)thing.
    "I love her" "I love that dress" etc. etc.
    then out of the blue, women ask us to explain how we "feel"'s not something we are asked to do on a regular basis.....
