I am sure the answer to this question is “pretty much everything”. Am I right, ladies? We will never understand how the inter-workings of a man’s brain operate, nor will we understand testosterone, but we do what we can to give them the benefit of the doubt.
My husband is actually pretty tame, but I always crack up when he and his buddies get together to tell the “war” stories about their profession (they are police officers). I sometimes wonder if the events are really like the stories they tell, but to see them so animated just makes me laugh.
I am always amazed how men can recite the scores, plays, and details of Superbowls of years past. How on earth do they do that? They can tell you where it was played, who played, the best plays, the longest runs and every other stat from any given year. I’ll hear something like, “Remember Superbowl XI, Raiders and Vikings, and Biletnikoff had 4 catches for 79 yards? Or what about Superbowl XVI when the Niners forced 5 turnovers?” Oy. Okay, I’ll admit it, I don’t know much about football, but it’s scary to think that they can remember details such as these, yet fail to remember to pick up milk on the way home from work.
When I’ve heard enough of their stories, I generally stuff some food in their faces (not literally), but it all gets very quiet when they have their favorite snacks in front of them. To fill their bellies (and keep them quiet longer), I like to serve something simple – such as hot dogs. That’s where Ball Park Franks come in really handy. I can whip up a meal they will love, in no time at all. And I can take a deep breath and enjoy the silence, until whomever finishes first says, “Remember that time when….”. This is when I typically head upstairs to watch some chick flicks on TV.
I know what I am serving the men in my life for Superbowl!
Men – easier fed than understood. If that isn’t the statement of the year, I don’t know what is.
I’d love to hear about what your guy does (with or without his buddies) that leave you shaking your head. Do tell!
