Mercy On Me

I can play guitar and I’m a whiz with computer programmes. I can walk and walk and not drop. If you were to teach me pretty much anything, I can learn it in a snap.

What I’m trying to say is that I’m reasonably smart. Certainly bright enough to tell the difference between my arse and my elbow. But still – there’s one thing I can’t understand. One thing that’s totally beyond my ability. One thing I can’t get my head around.

Know what that is? C’mon – have a guess. It’s something that’s pretty much everywhere in this world. You see them all over the shop. No way to escape them, even if you hiked up to the top of the highest peaks.

Got it?

Okay – I’ll tell you. It’s women.

I mean, what is it about these creatures that makes them so wonderful and yet so maddeningly frustrating at the same time?

Just when I think I’m winning on any particular day … I don’t know – everything seems to flip upside-down and the roof falls, plop, on my head. From a great height. Hard!

I’m totally baffled as to what to do on an hourly basis. Help!

So, if you know where there’s a User Manual for Women – have mercy on me – please let me have a copy! It’d sure be worth a pretty penny to me.

Any advice you can give would also be most welcome.

  1. I’ll trade you a draft of how to handle a woman-child-spiritual being if you have the answer to why men find such a person repellant and what that person should do to make themselves more marketable …

    • Ha! You think I don’t know that? I am one! šŸ˜€
      Imagine being stuck in the middle of a quagmire – muddy and confused. That’s what it feels like to be a bloke.


  2. I would suggest that you do the opposite of anything you think is a good idea in dealing with the women in your life… and that would be a good start šŸ™‚ and if you haven’t, you should check out Meghan tregellis on WP. A mutual friend.

    • Now actually, that sounds like the best advice I’ve had for a long time, Dee. It seems that I’ve been arse-about-face for the longest time! And yes – Meg is a wonderful person – I need to talk to her for sure.
      I’ve been away – missed me? šŸ™‚


      • I did miss you, Robert! We women are a terribly confusing lot, I know. I think men have mostly a few basic needs that are easily met, so you expect us to be the same. My biggest problem early on in relationships was to expect the guy to know what I wanted and needed from him and that if he cared enough I shouldn’t have to ask. Now I try to spell things out very clearly. No surprises that way, good or bad! A friend of mine buys her own gifts, wraps them, is pleased when she opens them, everyone is happy šŸ˜‰

      • Ah, Dee – you sure you don’t want to clone yourself and send a copy to England! Write a book about this – or at least a blog post – you make so much sense. šŸ™‚
        Kindness – Robert.
