As much as I love what my gender can accomplish. As proud as I am to be a woman. As fabulous as I think the female sex is....*exasperated sigh*....why, oh why? Why do we act like idiots with our boyfriends, spouses, significant others, partners, etc? Why?!
This happens time and time again. At least once a day, a couple will come into the theater to watch a movie. The guy will turn to his woman and ask his woman what she wants.
"Really. What do you want to drink?" he'll ask.
"I'm not really thirsty. I'll just have some of yours. Get whatever you want."
"Ok. I'll have a large Coke."
"Coke? You're getting a Coke? No, we'll have a [insert soda other than Coke here...usually diet]."
Getting the soda I ask, "Anything else?"
The male will turn to his date, "Are you sure you don't want anything?"
"No," she'll insist. "I'm not hungry."
He turns to me. "I'll have a Skittles."
"Skittles? You're getting Skittles? I want Cookie Dough."
He looks at me and says, "We'll have a cookie dough."
"Anything else?" I ask AGAIN. (Have you noticed the pattern in all of the Fresh Fish posts?) Now...This can continue until The Girl has ordered one of every thing on our menu or until the money has been exhausted. And throughout the $20-I'm-not-hungry-get-what-you-want food order, The Girl will insist, she is NOT hungry.
Helen Redding would be proud.
I am woman! Hear me Roar!
