Oh for the love of pete! Why are you women so hard to understand? Seriously–like what’s with the shoes and the chocolate and the shoe chocolate and the chocolate shoe and shoes and shoes’ chocolate shoe of chocolate?
It’s enough to make a guy crazy or at least write an incredibly insightful article titled “20 Things Men Will Never Understand” that was recycled from Maxim cologne ads and rejected According to Jim scripts.
I have a vagina. I just checked. I feel I might be able to shed light on these things of 20 that men will never understand.
1. Why you say the opposite of what you mean.
First let me say that this is such a good article. Women are all the same. All the same. From Miley Cyrus to Malala Yousafzai, we are one giant monolithic group that likes to say “I’m fine” when we mean “I want to jab this corkscrew in your frontal lobe”. Why do we do it? So we don’t murder you. And shoes. I like shoes and math is hard.
2. Your fascination with shoes.
Yup. We gals like shiny baubles and laser pointers. All of us. Even women without feet.
3. Why you won’t tell us what’s bothering you.
This seems like a retread of the first mystery of non-understanding. See the answer to number 1.
4. Why you won’t order your own fries.
Easy. We’re all fat. And we can’t tell you that bothers us because we can’t tell you what is really wrong and I’m fine and shoes.
5. How you’re so good at multitasking.
This is true. I’ve been able to simultaneously roll my eyes and look up how to spell “simultaneously” at the same time.
6. How you’re able to sleep like that.
7. Why you ask about our exes so much.
Because we’re all Bravo Real Housewives and get into catfights and meow and shoes and mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds.
8. How you expect me to remember all those details.
Because our lives are so very, very small.
9. Why you ask questions when you know you won’t like the answers.
Did you get paid for this? Because I don’t get paid for my writing and if I did, I would probably get less, right?
10-20. Chocolate, communal trips to the bathroom, periods are yucky, drama, other demeaning tropes.
You honestly don’t understand what a period is? Well sometimes when a mommy loves a daddy, a mommy’s lining in her womb will shed if a daddy doesn’t plant a special baby flower in there. The lining along with a copious amount of blood flows out of the mommy’s hee-haw. And presto! Shoes. Shoes and chocolate.
Hoped that help and by the way, I’m totally fine.
