Man Talk

Last week, Chase rode with me to pick up some take out food for dinner while Eldon waited at home. We discussed what we needed to pack for our trip. He was wearing a pair of shorts, so I asked him, "Do you have more shorts that fit you?"

"No."

"Do your swimsuits still fit you?"

"No."

"I'm driving. Call your Dad and tell him to add to the shopping list there by his chair shorts and swimsuit for you. " (He's hitting the buttons on the phone and holding it to his ear.) "Tell him how you only have one pair and that you've out grown--"

"Dad, Mom said to add shorts and swimsuit for me on the list. Okay, Bye."

"Why didn't you tell him the reasons why?"

"Mom, we're men. We don't need all the details."

Good grief, isn't that just the way it is!! I'm glad I only have one man in my house to deal with. I love him abundantly.

Oh ho ho ho ho, THIS IS GOOD! Wait till Alan reads this one!!!

Just last week Alan came home telling me a discussion he had with his boss about the boss's minister.
Without going into the details, Alan referred his boss to our son's website and blah, blah, blah.

I was telling our son about it because I said, Dad will never tell you the details that surrounded the conversation. Why are men like that?

Anyway, your son has learned that early. He is so perceptive! I LOVE that boy!

I probably wouldn't need a reason either and I'm a woman.
