Friday Funnies: Men and Women

From an email that's going around...attributed to the Roman Newswire Forum, which does exist but which I was unable to search, so I couldn't link the original source.

I'M GOING TO BED: Men vs Women

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed."

She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table, and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.

She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt, and secured a loose button.

She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger, and put the telephone book into the drawer.

She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket, and hung up a towel to dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a text book out that was hiding under the chair

She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope, and wrote a quick grocery list. She put both near her purse.

Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her night solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth, and filed her nails..

Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."

"I'm on my way," she said.

She put some water into the dog's dish and then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on.

She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TVs, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one who was still up doing homework.

In her own room, she set the alarm, laid out clothing for the next day, and straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her "six most important things to do" list. She said her prayers and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular, "I'm going to bed."

And he did . . . without another thought.

  1. I posted this on my hubby's wall. This is exactly what I feel every night. Rob would prefer to go to bed by 10 every night and even if we "go up" at 10, the running joke is that it's always 11:00 in our bedroom. I can't go straight to bed - there are always a dozen detours between me and bed. I love this!
