What women really mean….

The other day I asked my husband to pick up cat food and litter. Okay, not difficult right? Well, he came home with cat treats and bird seed. We don’t have a bird by the way.

Needless to say I was really PO’d and let him know it. He then said something that really shocked me. He told me that he never knows what I mean and that it leaves him stressed trying to figure out what I “really” mean. Naturally I was complete confused, since , “Honey please pickup cat food and cat litter on your way home” seems pretty self-explanatory… apparently I’m mistaken.

We had a long discussion about the things I ask of him and what I “really” mean… This is what HE came up with…

When I ask, “Honey are you hungry?”

According to my husband’s brilliant deduction, this is what I mean….”I’m way too tired to cook anything so please say no and fix yourself a bowl of cereal.”

Finances….if we need to budget and I say…”Okay I’ll limit the withdrawals this month…”

He knows I really mean…”Get off my case, I work too and if you have a problem with my spending then maybe you should get a second job you bum.”

When he asks me what I want for my birthday, Christmas, Valentines Day etc…and I say…”Oh lets just enjoy the day and not get each other a gift…”

What I really mean is…”I’ve already told you what I wanted, so you should have already gotten it and if I don’t get you anything that’s okay cuz I labored for twelve hours to have your offspring!”

When I call him from the other room…”Hun do you have a minute?”

What I really mean is….”Since your not doing anything special, could you…” and I proceed to give him five pages of things I need done around the house to make my life easier.

and my personal favorite…

When he forgets my birthday, or some important “US” day…and all I do is walk past him  with a ” : )” not saying a word…every time we lock eyes….

What I really mean is…”Enjoy the quiet time, cuz it just you and your hand tonight!” Thank you “Pink” for paraphrasing.

All I can say is…looks like he knows me pretty well…no wonder I love him!

So if you have any “what you really mean is…” lets hear ’em…this could be fun!
