much. And I never have figured out the whole Mars &Venus thing. And, I never
have figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.
And, I never yet have figured out how the sexual desire gene gets thrown
into a state of turmoil, when it hears the words "I do".
One evening last week, my wife and I were getting into bed. Well, the
passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says, "I don't feel like
it, I just want you to hold me."
I said, "WHAT??" So she says the words that I and every husband on the
planet dreads. She explains that I must not be in tune with her emotional
needs as a Woman.
I'm thinking, "What was her first clue?" I finally realize that nothing is
going to happen that night, so I went to bed.
The very next day then we went shopping at a big unnamed department
store...I walked around while she tried on three very expensive outfits.
She couldn't decide which one to take, so I told her to take all three
She then tells me that she wants matching shoes worth $200 each to which I
say OK. And then we go to the Jewelry Dept. where she gets a set of
diamond earrings. Let me tell you ...she was so excited.
She must have thought that I was one wave short of a shipwreck, but I
don't think she cared. I think she was testing me when she
asked for a tennis bracelet because she doesn't even play tennis. I think
I threw her for a loop when I told her that it was OK.
She was almost sexually excited from all of this and you should have
seen her face when she said, "I'm ready to go, let's go to
the cash register."
I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No, honey. I don't
feel like buying all this stuff now."
You should have seen her face ... it went completely blank. I then
said, "Really honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while."
And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added,
"You must not be in tune with my financial needs as a Man."
I figure that I should be having sex again sometime during the spring thaw
