    Or ask what time's dinner if the stove is not lit and going...  :s
    :D That's a good way to start a fight!
    Most of my married friends can cook, and do so pretty often as their wives also work. They've been trained well. :) There are two of my friends that are only allowed to cook breakfast, and the fight about cleaning up the mess they made starts AFTER breakfast. :D 
    One of our most epic fights started that way.

    I came home around 8:00 PM starved after spending all day in NYC and this is how it went:

    me: (upon noticing there was no food on the stove)  Hi hon, when are we eating?

    Now THIS is what she heard, “HEY, what have you been doing all day that dinner is not ready?”

    she: I have been busy all day running around............ (and some other blah, blah, blah for the next 5 minutes).

    So since I’m starving I said:  Ok, I’m ordering some Chinese food. (AND, I went out of my way NOT to add any emotional inflection to this simple sentence)

    What SHE heard was:  “F you, you are lying to me and I’m sure you spent the whole day laying on the couch watching TV eating bon-bons (I don’t even know what those are but she actually used that word) so I have to order some food because you’re useless to me.”

    And then there was some sort of small nuclear explosion and it all went dark...

    That is why I constantly remind my wife "DO NOT look for any hidden meaning in anything I say.  I mean exactly and precisely what I say and nothing else!"  As far as cooking goes....she is pretty much limited in her cooking skills to following the directions on the back of the box, but she willingly admits it.  I am the one who does most of the cooking (when I am not traveling) and am the only one who will experiment......that has created some really good dishes.....and some pretty spectacular failures.  :D

    That is what they left out of that book " Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus" that all the women had to read in the 90's. Men say what they mean including the details, not just something and sort it out later if it had any meaning in the first place.

    Stop blaming them. It is in their DNA, just like it is in ours to screw up.

    With women, what you say and what they hear are not necessarily even close to the same thing a lot of the time. I suppose that is worse when you are married; I have limited experience in that marriage area. Girl friends can be pretty bug nutz crazy at interpretation, though.

    And GunNut, the Babel Fish is ill equipped to translate what a woman hears and how SHE translates it. :D

    But the way things are going, it soon will be available at a retail outlet near you.

    Could it be an effect of the lockdown?


    edit
    With some of the very unique things coming through to me, I think I may be being haunted by Big Chief's browsing history.
    :D











    It's one thing to see that at a fashion show.  Those guys just try to outdo each other with crazy during fashion week.  It's another to see this at the store or in a catalogue of a mainstream store you actually shop at.  I think they meant to put this in the little girls department but there was a horrible screw up... :D

    Who are they?

    Or what are they? 

    Where have they just landed?

    Should I hoard more toilet paper?

    I very nearly had to quit texting my wife. Cuz when I wrote words like "good" or "OK", I found out that a short reply could've meant disinterest, sarcasm, pent up frustration, or any combination of ill will; even though the word "good" by itself means just that, at face value (which is what I was always shooting for in the first place, otherwise I would not have written it). But I'm capable of learning, and eventually found out that the more of these  :) you put in after  :) every  :) word,  :) phrase  :) or connotation  :), the better off you are, and it seemingly  :) fixes everything in the female interpretation  :):):)

    For example, lets say I told/wrote you something like this:

    You arent much good for anything are you. A mush-head like you could figure out how to screw something up every time if you had the chance

    Versus...

     :)  You aren't much good for anything are you  :p:D . A mush-head like you could figure out how to screw something up every time if you had the chance  :):):)

    See the difference?? Blows your mind doesnt it?

    It'll either go or blow!
    Somebody gave me an old Kaypro computer. Powered on, lit up, but it wouldn't read the boot disk. Then a capacitor, presumably in the CRT display, let go... No matter what the generation of electronics, it all smells the same when it burns up or blows up!

    Very poor execution if you ask me. Anything with a skirt like bottom I like; but anything with a tight collar, jacket and ESPECIALLY a necktie I do not. Pass.
    Edit: The more I think about this, the more of a train wreck it becomes! I'm not fond of long sleeves either (and they're too long or the jacket's are too short), although they can work with the right outfit - and what's up with the "hanky look" under the pleats? Looks sloppy and its too short for my taste as well.
    I do like the "shoulder throw" thing - although what with the tight collar, necktie and jacket, the whole ensemble must be hot and uncomfortable. Why add more insulation?
    My eyes saw a shirt tail.  Sloppy as hell.  The rest of the ensemble....... meh.
    Have always simply loathed the too-small-jacket look.  Just why?

    I avoid cooking like you guys avoid wearing skirts! I'd burn water...
    I'm a half-assed cook.  I have found that not having to cook real meals (as my hubby is in an institution lo these eight months) really narrows down my need to actually cook.  Some vegan mish-mash or a gluten free pasta with a meaty red sauce is almost my entire repertoire in the kitchen these days.  That and the dog's food.  I'm not tired of the lack of variety yet, so all's well.

    Got pulled aside by Wal*Mart's "Mutaween" for not wearing a mask. The guy apologized and agreed that it was "shullbit". I'm *STILL* waiting for my face veil to show up...

    Do they not have "exemptions" there?  I have a bona fide exemption but unless I'm really suffering, I wear the most comfortable mask I own, simply because I love where I shop and don't want them to go through the hassle of some mask nazi reporting them to the governor's squealer hotline for allowing a bare face in their establishment.
    Here's my favorite one.  My chiropractor and his staff turned me on to these.  No CO2 rebreathing!

    That's OK - they want a face covering, they'll get one. I'm just waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the face veil I ordered from a supposedly US based seller to arrive from you-know-where. "Mutaween" indeed!

    You'll only need one!
    This is the second time I've been bit in the behind by a "US Seller" who drop ships from "you know where". They get neutral feedback at best.
    If I know its coming from there, that's one thing. But to be surprised and wait wait wait wait when thinking it was from the US is another. I have a camera grip coming - what its doing "there" I have no idea, but they're hard to find, and its been hung up in customs for a week now - Goddess alone knows when it'll get here!

    Good call, very sensible man.
    The mask is there to protect other people not you.
    Keep your distance and stay safe.
    It is not nice to catch.
