I Hate the way it Fits!
I Hate the way it Fits!
I have dug
myself into a few holes in this blog while talking about the difference between
men and women.Apparently, the only
differences between the sexes that is acceptable these days is when women are
on the superior side.
If you go by
TV commercials you would be led to believe that not only are men complete
idiots, but that we can no longer even win an arm wrestling match with a
woman.I am not prepared to argue the
idiot thing, but dammit I can whip 90% of all the women on the face of the Earth in
arm wrestling, and I am over 70 for crap sake. Give us something!
I have also
argued the man-flu myth; and the pay differential thing…ok it exists, but not
to the extent that is advertised.I
don’t know about the “me too” stuff, I know men can be pigs, but gol-darn it I
have never been that kind of pig so stop lumping me and lots of other men into
the men-in- power-pig-pool.
OK, here is
one man-woman difference that I will admit to.
whimps about clothes.
I can not
stand uncomfortable clothes.If a shirt
does not fit just right I will not wear it.
“The collar is choking me!”
“Oh, for God sake, toughen up.”
I can’t, if
the collar is tight I can not wear it.I
have brand new jeans that are not broken in and will never be worn because they pull on my crotch and I
have other beat-up jeans that are broken in and are comfortable.Even underwear, some just runs into the the plumber's crack. I hate new stuff, it never
you kidding me.It takes months to break
in a new pair, and I will whine the whole time.Yes, I will, I confess.
Mrs. C will work a new pair of shoes too small for her feet and not complain a
“Why are you limping.”
Giant heels, thin skin-ripping straps…it does not matter, she will endure.
wear dresses that look fabulous but are as uncomfortable as hell and I won’t
know until we get home and she sighs,
“Oh, it feels good to get out of
stuff to pull them in, push them up, shape their legs and never complain.
comfort.Women go for style and looks
and a little pain is not a deterrent.
You may say
women are tougher than men because they work right through a cold…I might not
agree.You may say women are tough
because they are able to deliver a baby…true, but do they have a choice?But one area I will not argue, women can
endure any discomfort in clothes if it makes them look thinner or sexier. Men whine at any clothes discomfort.
could not care less about their style, they prefer comfort; but we
do appreciate the pain you ladies put up with to look as good as you do.
