Was being in love part of the plan?
Men...they're so hard to understand.
Take for instance the average man,
he hears the words but never listens;
a connection from his ear
to his oversized brain-eyes glistens.
You think you have their attention,
but when you ask for their opinion,
they reply, "I don't think you mentioned?"
Where are those words we spoke?
When they get that dull look in their eye,
in a moment you know he'll die, as you choke
him giving his final sigh...

They think that size is a matter,
six feet tall, a brain slightly larger,
they think to us - this flatters.
I'm here to say that this is the issue;
takes too long for them to comprehend,
or interpetation of "I miss you".
I called my man on the phone,
to say the house was on fire,
and I'm all alone,
He said, "I'll be home later!" ???

I hadn't noticed that I was that bad of a listener... *grin* probably lost something in the translation...

I agree with this 100%, but to be fair, women have their faults as well.

Rand-nothing personal. Just venting some
frustrations. God knows...I'm not perfect or
a perfect listener.

Thanks Dream...glad I could accomadate
you this evening.

LOL - some of them aren't like that! (though some of them most certainly can...) And to agree with DreamEvil - we women can be just as bad! I like this very much.
