Today I’d like to thank the stars of yesterday’s blog piece – the maggots. It was entirely down to them that Other Half leapt into the van and shot off to town to buy a new fridge. I have been explaining for some years, ever since he changed the door around, moving the hinges, that it didn’t shut properly. It took living proof (literally) that flies could get in there to prompt him into immediate action.
OK he came home with a fridge/freezer that is far too big and there is now no space on top for the kettle to live. No matter. I will work around it somehow. I didn’t need another fridge/freezer, I needed a small fridge.
This brings me to a subject I rarely touch. The real differences between the functioning of the male or female brain. Economics is a prime example. Female logic is – I saw a gorgeous bag/skirt/pair of sandals but they were nearly 100 euros so I didn’t buy them. I bought one for 10 euros QED – we have saved 90 euros, good girl me!
Man’s reaction is usually – what the f*** are you doing? You have more bags/skirts/pairs of sandals than you could use in the rest of your life!
Right – so I understand. We cannot afford an Indian skirt off Amazon for 10 euros (Prime – no postage) and we are therefore total paupers. Fine! I can work with that, as a kid “we wuz proper poor”.
Male logic is “Me want fridge. Me hate maggots. Me spend 300 euros on very BIG fridge”
Now I’m confused. We don’t have 10 euros for a skirt but we have 300 to spare for over-large white goods which mean I am going to have to re-arrange the kitchen completely.
Can anyone explain this to me because it has me beat?
