Gray Matters

This should turn up the heat. Too funny. Too true.

Hat tip to Jen.

  1. This guy should get the Nobel Prize. At the very least he should get danger money for lampooning the emotional state of a woman’s brain! In certain liberal forums this would mean execution, or emasculation anyway.

    I’d write more, but I took out the wrong box……

  2. Yes, when my husband sent this I had to laugh. For years he’s made comments to me at certain times that *I’m overloading my circuits*. Now I know what he means! I can’t help it, you see, I’m wired that way. And, now I understand why he doesn’t see the connections to things that I see … he cannot; his boxes do not intersect. There apparently is NO wiring. Well, I’ll just leave it at that. 😉

  3. Jen,

    I thought guys liked wires and stuff? Is that why they like us? They see us as akin to that 57 in 1 electronics kit from Radio Shack that they had as a youngster? We’re a fascinating and intriguing experiment that they try to figure out at first, then decide to just accept for what it is and hope they don’t get a lethal shock someday!

    I’m proud of our complex wiring — and I don’t expect my husband to really understand it any more than I can understand his empty box. The tough thing, though, is to accept these realities about each other!

    I must say, though, that men have to learn how to avoid getting stuck with their empty boxes out too much of the time and women have to avoid energizing their wires with emotion. I think we tend to use these traits as excuses for our behavior a little too much sometimes!

  4. Okay, I’ve been racking my brain, while doing chores, on how to *discredit* Father Angelo’s depictions of the male versus female brains. I must admit that it’s had me laughing hysterically. (Oh, I do love a good laugh even if it means that I, in this case women in general, have to be at the brunt of it every so often.)

    One of my chores today is to fix the RATS NEST of wires around our computer. It’s a nightmare and we’ve just added a router to the mess which has spilled us over the top. That got me thinking of the RATS NEST that Father Angelo envisions as the female brain. You know, the rats nest around our computer doesn’t look pretty, but it does some pretty amazing stuff. I realize we can now go wireless on some things, but disregarding that newer phenomenon, without all those wires, our computers just wouldn’t work right. The lovely, neatly wired circuit board that depicts the man’s brain (according to Father Angelo) is far more limited, I should think.

    However, I enjoyed Other Mary’s thoughts, too. See, ladies, we really can dress modestly … it’s really the wiring in our heads that men cannot even see that makes us desirable. And, yes, God clearly made us with these differences … the boxes need the wires and the wires need the boxes. It’s a mystery that we really should laugh about more often … we take this mystery way too seriously these days.

  5. Yes, you have only one empty box but I bet it’s the biggest of the boxes you have!!! And certainly, the most centrally located since, as the man said, you escape to it whenever possible.

  6. WHAT A REVELATION! SO NOW WHEN I ASK MY HUSBAND WHAT HE IS THINKING ABOUT (AS HE IS DRIVING US IN THE CAR), AND HE SAYS NOTHING, I SHOULDN’T GET UPSET, HE IS JUST VISITING HIS ‘NOTHING’ BOX’!!!!
