Men Don't do
Has anybody else noticed this?
Here's an example. At the end of my hall there is a halltable, with a lamp in the center, and a bowl of rough minerals and crystals in it, slightly
in front of, and a little askew of the lamp. I have a female guest in my guestroom. After one night, I notice the items on the table have been
rearranged. The lamp is now on one end, and the bowl of minerals is on the other end of the table.
I don't care for it. I put it back the way it was. She doesn't touch it again for the remainder of her visit. Without saying a word we understand
what has happened. It's never mentioned.
Consider a male guest, same scenario. I put the items back the way they were originally. The next day he has put them back the way he likes them.
Again, I move them back to the original position. He again changes them. We are longtime friends, so I say "why do you keep moving the things on
the halltable around? He is like -- WHAT? OH! I didn't realize, I'm sorry! Why didn't you just tell me?
I told him I was being subtle. He actually blushed and said "but, you know, men don't do
subtle". (yes, I know).
Seriously, did he think we'd had an earthquake two nights in a row? Nope. He just didn't think about it period.
One more example. I am in the bathroom brushing my teeth. He thinks of something he MUST tell me right away, so he comes in the bathroom. After he
leaves, I close the bathroom door. Guess what? He has a follow-up to what he told me earlier, (something equally as urgent and fascinating) and
comes right in again -- well, cracks the door and talks through the crack.
Why? Because men don't do
A woman would have thought 'uh oh" and waited.
So is it the testosterone or what? Is it like testosterone refrigerator blindness? Kind of a testosterone subtlety immune-ness thing going
