Talking

I found out that one of my co-workers went to Las Vegas last Friday to visit a childhood friend who was in jail. The reason his friend was in jail was because he murdered his wife. The reason he murdered his wife was because she talked too much and wouldn't shut up.

I thought that was kind of funny in a sick sort of way. I know, I have a demented sense of humor. I relayed the story to Julie and then kept looking at her with a grin on my face..

There's a definite difference between the way men talk with each other versus the way women talk. I was thinking of putting up a poll asking the question, "should women be born with a muting button?" but then thought the better of it lest some people take me seriously, haha..

When I mentioned how I was going to get together with my two good buddies from junior high, one of my friends told me that she recently had a mini-reunion lunch with some of her friends that she hadn't seen in ages. She pointed out a difference between guys and girls that I thought was pretty accurate: "..you guys have such a good time just having fun. No drama like women do..."

Yeah, with guys nothing is really a big deal. Or maybe our big deals are just different. After I got back from my lunch with Alan and Michael, and after my lunch with JT, Julie asked me what we talked about and I thought back on it and nothing really stood out. Then she asked me if we talked about this or talked about that, or did they ask this or did they ask that, or did I ask them this or did I ask them that and I just shook my head and said "no, no, no, no, no, no" in response.

And she couldnt believe it. "You didn't talk about ____? Or ____???"

"No, guys never talk about that stuff. Didn't even come up."

"Well then what did you talk about?"

I pondered that one and shrugged. "Not a whole lot."

"You and your friends are weird."

Let's say you get together with your friends and one of them got in a car accident.

Girls conversation:

"You did?? Are you okay?? Did you get hurt? Oh my goodness! I hope everything is all right. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you."

Guy's conversation:

"Is your car okay? Was there much damage? Who hit you? A woman? How old was she? Was she fine-looking?"

Okay, I'll stop here before I dig myself in deeper..
