The Difference Between Men And Women

This is what I look like right now.


I’ve just returned from a five mile run.


My running clothes are sweaty and stinky but I’m too Sunday morning lazy to change out of them.


I’m even leaving sweat-marks on the chair.


My breath is combination of morning and coffee as I haven’t brushed my teeth yet.


My feet are cracked and bleeding from the dry, the cold, the running.


I have yesterday’s make-up still caked around my eyes.


I’m checking Facebook instead of talking to him as he sits across from me and is shockingly freshly showered.


And he comes over, puts his arms around me, asks me for a kiss and then whispers that we have a few moments alone(if you know what I mean) before the kids get up.


And I say “I am so sweaty, gross, stinky, yucky, omg you are so weird, go away!”


Because if I were freshly showered and he was the one sitting here in his stench – I would tell him to go take a shower because gross! Who wants to touch that let alone have sex with it.


Men are so strange.

    David has whispered in my ear before, “Why don’t you go take a shower so we can… you know…” For real. If I have to take a shower what’s the point?

    Seriously, someone did a number on our wiring. So many prerequisites hardcoded into us about feeling:
    in the mood
    etc. Pffft.

    I hope tomorrow’s post is about a Sunday afternoon romp 😉

    Yep. Men are like dogs that way.

    I secretly wish that I could be just a little bit more like that.

    Until then, I am comforted to know that I share this situation with most women I know.

    I’m with anymommy up there. The shower…except that I live in an apartment with a dinky bathroom right next to the kids’ room. AND, I would much rather shower *after*.
