This is a little story which Emily found, and I thought it was funny as Hell. It a bit hyperbolic, of course, but not nearly so much as some would have you believe.

I feel, to the best of my knowledge, that this describes and elucidates so many of my interactions with women (read: woman) in the last... oh... seven and a half months or so. It's almost creepy how truly this story depicts a sort of typical interaction between men and women in a relationship context and really manages to capture the differences in the way the two genders (generally) operate.

I believe every word of that story is Gospel truth.

Speaking of which, I watched some college teams I don't even remember play football on TV yesterday, and I loved every minute of it.

I was at the mall today, and Victoria's Secret was having a 10 for $25 panty sale. The place brimming with women, and just outside, there was an area with couches and a TV where a bunch of men were watching football. I feel that the situation accurately describes everything I've ever learned about gender roles.

Have you seen women at a sale like that in a mall? It's like a war zone.

See, I thought you meant that store in general, not that store during an amazing sale.

I went there once during Christmas holidays to buy my then-girlfriend a gift card for Christmas, since she loved the place.

It was pretty intense, and three women took swings at me. Hell If I know why.

Yesterday I was very girl. I watched the BBC miniseries Pride and Prejudice while knitting and drinking hot chocolate.

I don't have an appropriately guy story to contrast, although my father was upstairs speaking to the tv box about a touchdown or somesuch.
