It’s time for our weekly Chick Lit “It’s all about the attitude” ‘Tude-torial!!!
And perhaps because I’m at a state-wide Sheriff’s Association Event for the entire week with my DH – meaning the testosterone levels in our hotel are at all-time highs – I ended up stumbling across this little gem from The Simpsons creator Matt Groening:
“WOMEN SPEAK IN ESTROGEN AND MEN LISTEN IN TESTOSTERONE”
‘Course…let me tell ya…from what I’ve heard this week – yes, while eavesdropping in the lobby and hotel bar – men sure as hell “speak” in testosterone too!
Groening took his theory and applied it to several topics, kind of a Men Are From Mars/Women From Venus thing. For example, here’s his spin on how this theory applies to RELATIONSHIPS:
“When a relationship ends, a woman will cry and pour her heart out to her girlfriends, and she will write a poem titled “All Men Are Idiots”. Then she will get on with her life.
A man has a little more trouble letting go. Six months after the break-up, at 3:00 a.m. on a Saturday night, he will call and say, “I just wanted to let you know you ruined my life, and I’ll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you’re a total floozy. But I want you to know that there’s always a chance for us.” This is known as the “I Hate You / I Love You” drunken phone call, and 99% of all men have made at least once. There are community colleges that offer courses to help men get over this need.”
So how ‘bout havin’ some fun with this in your WIPs?!
The next time you’re stuck on your page…ask yourself “What would Marge Simpson say” then “What would Homer say”. And who the hell knows about good ‘ole Bart! Personally, I think he’s the genius of the family!!!
