I was surfing a bit, and came across this blog. I think I’d been there before, but I don’t think I’ve linked and recounted how enjoyable I find Jan’s style and blogging. This post from June 30 was one of those men/women comparisons I like so well:
the view from her
why women are talkative
A husband attempted to prove to his wife that women talk more than men by showing her a study which indicated that men use on the average only 15,000 words a day, while women use 30,000 words a day. (What was he thinking?)
His wife considered the information for a moment, and then suggested that women use twice as many words as men because they have to repeat everything they say.
Looking stunned, her husband said, “What?”
here’s some from my own collection:
Woman2: Oh! You got a haircut! That’s so cute!
Woman1: Do you think so? I wasn’t sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don’t think it’s too fluffy looking?
Woman2: Oh God no! No, it’s perfect. I’d love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I’m pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.
Woman1: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts – that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.
Woman2: Oh – that’s funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.
Woman1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms -see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier………
Men forget everything; women remember everything.
That’s why men need instant replays in sports. They’ve already forgotten what happened.
