Introducing a new section: Things Men Say…Not necessarily food-related but people like more than just food…
As both a woman and a writer – (its super cool I’m capable of being both, right? Soooo multi-dimensional) men interest me. You never know what’s going to come out of their cute little mouths. One minute they’ll be telling you about this new videogame they’re playing, the next they’re telling you about the girl they’re trying to hook-up with and what an awesome butt she’s got. Men are fascinating, albeit simple creatures
I would love, just for a day, to enter the male mind. What things might be found in there – besides images of Kate Upton, fantasy baseball/football/hockey/basketball/curling/whatever sport happens to be in season scores, images of Kate Upton, actual baseball/football/hockey/basketball/curling/whatever sport happens to be in season scores and, you guessed it, images of Kate Upton – oh, and maybe how cool they think Jay-Z is.
Having said that, I used to think nothing shocked me – I mean, I lived in Hollywood at one point – now I live in San Francisco – I like to think I’ve pretty much seen and heard everything – not true! The other day, whilst talking with a male friend, the conversation went from cell phones, how his cell phone wasn’t charging to possible reasons why the phone wasn’t charging to being stood-up by a girl, to hooking up with his ex-girlfriend.
Now, I don’t generally pay much attention to men when they speak.
I find it best to mostly smile, nod and think about something more important like that new purse I saw at Nordstrom’s or what I’m going to wear when we go out to dinner tomorrow or the possibility that I may need to buy new heels for the potential outfit that I’m going to wear when we go out to dinner.
I really don’t need to know that you and your friends stayed out really late drinking or how many beers you had and how you hadn’t had that much to drink since blah, blah, blah…what am I supposed to say to that? Really? Tell me more! You drank how much?! You must have the endurance of a cheetah! Oh, wait, cheetahs don’t have endurance…nevertheless, we’re digressing.
The point is, the other day, I was actually listening! And you know what, after what I heard, I’m going to start listening more! Who knew men were so, well, you be the judge…click on that little tab up there – yes there – at the top of the page…
