This is cutting edge improvisational blogging.
We call it – “Whose Blog is it anyway ?”
We have written this for FUN, not serious, to amuse ourselves and our readers, and help promote our blogs. So please read with that in mind.
Me And Nav
Nav and I share a common ethos, neither of us suffer misandrists gladly.
Suz Jones was the catalyst that brought us finally together after his recent “Follow Blogger” submission on her blog. I hadn’t until that point realised that he was someone I wanted to get to know, or any common interest apart from both being men. After reading his about page, and empathising with what he’d been through, I decided to cultivate him as a friend. Indeed a good friend he has indeed turned out to be.
Nav is an accomplished wordsmith and currently working on a new fiction book that is an exposé of misandrists. At least that’s how I understand it.
You can find Nav at THE MIRROR blog.
Please do enjoy Nav’s guest improviser submission.
‘What do women want?’ is the dumbest question a man could ever ask
(Don Charisma – No Intro from Nav)
Without a doubt, the dumbest question a man could ever ask is, “What do women want?” By the time you think to ask it, it is already too late. Might as well be half way up la rivière du Poop and ask, “Why would I ever need a paddle?”
Let me give you a true example. One Canadian Christmas when I was a wee lad, my mother wondered where her Christmas gift was. Dad told her: “It’s in the garage.” Mom ran out to the garage, excited that she was getting a car for Christmas.
Only there was no car. Instead, there was a brand new snow shovel. Seems Mom had been griping about shovelling snow when Dad was away. Dad couldn’t fathom Mom’s disappointment. “What do women want?”
Not your best question, Pop.
As men, we must understand what women want before coming in contact with this rather alien gender. To do this, we must turn first to biology. It is a fact that women prefer rugged, masculine men when they are ovulating. The women, that is. The remaining 90% of the time, women prefer sensitive and supportive men.
This explains why navigators are in such high demand. We’re masculine, yet we also do dishes. Sometimes. This is why feminists say, “Don’t be that guy.” Even feminists don’t like wusses.
The lesson here is that 90% of the time, women don’t really know what they want. That rounds up to 100% of the time. So let’s ignore them, and use REASON to figure out what women REALLY want.
Women are sensitive about their appearances. Think of the clichéd line “Does this dress make me look fat?” What women REALLY want is to never be in that awkward position. So keep an eye on your wife’s weight for her. “Gee, Honey, did you shrink your jeans? Why don’t you try cottage cheese for lunch?”
She’ll thank you. It’s your way of showing you care about her feelings.
Hair? She’ll bouff it up for that night you’re both going out. Why? Why does the sun rise? She has insecurities. Tell her that her night out hairdo would make Medusa look good. This means that her normal hair do is beautiful. She’ll feel great about herself and will love you for it.
Is she upset about the toilet seat being left up again? “Gee, Love. It isn’t fair that I don’t have a urinal in the bathroom, is it? Besides, it also isn’t fair that I have to lift it up AND put it down. We’re supposed to share the work.” She’ll appreciate your sharing how you feel about the issue. She will also appreciate realizing that you two can have a meaningful, adult conversation when she is being unreasonable.
You can’t put a price on unconditional love.
Women also need to feel secure. This includes financially. So stop buying her flowers. It’s insensitive wasting money like that. Pick dandelions for her instead. You save money, get the organic salad greens, save her some grocery shopping and yardwork, and show her you care in one fell swoop.
Since women don’t know what they want, you’d better know for them, before it’s too late. “What do women want?” is indeed the dumbest question a man could ever ask.
Don’t be that guy.
