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 Mrs Jones
Suz and I have become friends through the fact she spends more time on my blog than anyone else, she’s top of my commenters and has been for months now. I think she may even spend more time on my blog than I do !
She’s a good-hearted lady, who’d do anything for me, so proud to have her writing on my blog. I never told anyone this before, but when I first “met” her I didn’t even know she had a blog that she updated, her link took me back to an old blog that hadn’t been updated in years. It’s only by chance that I found her actual blog, and would invite you all to visit her, she’s as we say in London “One of your own”. You can find Suz at It Goes On blog.
Please do enjoy Suz’s guest improviser submission.
‘What do women want?’ is the smartest question a man could ever ask
My friend Don has set me a challenge. Always one to take the bait (just ask my family. They ‘reel’ me in all the time), I will rise to the challenge given.
As a woman who has been on this planet for almost 50 years, I have had numerous opportunities in my life to assess exactly what women want and why men need to know this. At various times in my life, I have also been known as a secretary, teacher aide, personal trainer, disability support worker, waitress, barista, restaurant supervisor, house keeper, Avon lady, salesperson, ‘tea and tidy’ in a hairdressing salon and bank teller. These were all paid positions – unlike the other 2000 or so other unrecognised and unpaid “jobs” that come with being a wife and mother. Therefore I am suitably qualified and uniquely capable of informing those of you reading that asking a woman what she wants is the smartest question a man could ever ask.
Men, I am here to tell you that if you do nothing else of worth in this life apart from asking the woman you love what she wants, then you will be forever remembered with fondest recall for your exceptional intelligence.
When asked the question “What do you want”? women the world over will almost always answer “I don’t know”. It then becomes your task to woo her and love her and tease the desired response from her. Women love the whole concept of wooing. The most perfect way to do this is to bring the sunshine of your life flowers. Heck, pick them from the garden if you wish. It’s the thought that counts. I know that being a man you are thinking “They will only die” but that is not the point. The whole point is to find out exactly what your woman wants and if flowers will help your cause then so be it!
You may also wish to indulge in gift giving. Chocolates are always a good go-to gift if you can’t think of anything else. However tread with caution in giving this gift if your chickadee is dieting or watching her weight. Remember, that you wish to be thought of as smart – not dead!
It must be difficult as a male to understand the vagaries of the female psyche. We get that and will cut you some slack. After all, you can’t be smart all the time. This is why being direct, open and honest with your lady love will score you big brownie points. She wants you to know what she wants and she has more than likely given up on providing you with subtle and not-so subtle hints as to what they might be. She has given up on casually pointing out things to you in stores and mentioning that she quite likes that. She has given up on dropping the names of restaurants or gallery openings into conversation with you. She has more than likely resorted to actually purchasing items, wrapping them and putting them under the Christmas tree with her name on them. (Whilst this last option might appeal to the men reading this as it lessens their workload, it is NOT what women want). Women want to be listened to and actually heard.
Therefore, I believe I have argued the case of men asking what women want as being the smartest thing they could ever do in their life. I am a woman and I know what I want – just ask me!! 🙂
