The List

I feel as if I am a reasonably intelligent person, and I read on a number of topics that I am not actually super concerned about just because I want to be well-versed on a number of subjects,but mostly so I can remain family Jeopardy champion. A little Car and Driver magazine here, a little ESPN web page there. I'll even gladly admit to my lack of skill in the accounting world. But there's one thing I will broadcast from the tallest cell tower - Man Things I Don't Understand.

I am happy for the differences that exist between men and women . I love that women are soft and pretty and smell good. It's a great way to be. But there is an inherent difference between the two sexes that CANNOT be reconciled! Knowing the stats of a baseball player for his entire career? Umm, okay. Grunting monosyllabic responses to questions phrased as a question? Hmm. Having the ability to actually be thinking about nothing? That defies Girl World at a cellular level! Spitting for distance? Ice fishing ? Debating the virtue of the Hail Mary at the two minute warning? And I hate to go here, but the inopportune scratch?

I know there's much, much more that we, as women, don't get about men. ( If only men were as simple as women. ) what would be on your list?
