We were waiting on the plane for our flight to Maui to take off. The wait was about an hour, because the weather in Dallas was stormy. It was the perfect time to have Chris read my blog entries. He had been busy with work and traveling, so he hadn’t had a chance to see what I’d been up to. While sitting there he said, “Let me see what you got.”
Well, he read and read. As he read, he smiled, laughed, and smiled again saying, “You’re telling everything. You’re not going to have anything else to say.” I laughed as I thought, “He just doesn’t know, I have so much to say!
Men just don’t get how much we really do need to express, how much we have to say, and how we don’t mind saying it. They are the ones not wanting to express themselves. We learned to respect that by not telling them all our thoughts (at once), but if they’d let us, we know how to tell it like it is.
Now, sometimes they are up to listening to us go on and on, but they just can’t hang in the deep waters like the girls. They would drown. Deep conversations on a continuous basis are not his idea of a good time.
Understanding our differences and being okay with us and them too is the best part of a good relationship. So I blog, blog, blog... I hope you like to swim.
