The "WHY DOES SHE" thread!

Deposit your light-hearted musings here. Good or bad!


tonight's example:



I'm learning how to cook, I'm a process guy so I love it. (results are nice too.)

I love when stuff shows up on the table at the perfect time in the perfect order and -also- tastes good.


WHY DOES SHE


Mysteriously disappear upstairs right as the first plate hits the table, to return 30 minutes later to a beautiful, ice cold setup?



cheers

...ask me why I didn’t let “the guy” tie the Christmas tree to the roof of the car seemingly questioning why I had to do it myself?

Yep. Loose at least an hour each night listening to what happened during her day.
Then "so how was your day?"
Me "It was OK, what do you want to do for dinner?"

Long pause, *younger me* tries to fill in pause guessing next word, gets hammered for interrupting.... *older me* sits and will wait for an eternity for the next word, gets hammered for not helping.


I just smile now. She is lucky she is cute.

A. Freaking. Men.

A story that really only has 3 pertinent facts somehow morphs into a 15 minutes saga, and includes details of an unrelated conversation she had in an elevator and a recipe for lasagna.

I think it’s a clutch problem.

The mouth won’t disengage from the brain.

Why, when I ask what she wants to do for dinner, always says "Eat something"?

That's a Blapper. Take one in your right hand, one in your left, pull them apart, put your face between them, and let go. When they hit your cheeks, Blap!

Why does she speak in pronouns? “I saw Bob and Mary and Ted and Alice at the store. Her anal cysts are getting worse. He told her it was going to rain and would need a coat and umbrella, and wouldn’t you know she left it at the gym.”

Or give vague driving instructions. Approaching a T intersection, “OK, turn here.”

Why does she say " well if you don't know I'm not going to tell you!".

Why does she answer my question with some rambling story that never ends in an answer?

Me: What time do we need to leave?

Her: Well, I need to finish my hair and iron a shirt and then warm up some stuff for the kids and then figure out which shoes to wear.

Me: So, what time do we need to leave?
