D and I may be very similar (likes: good food, the outdoors, hiking, wii… dislikes: being stuck inside, stupid movies, and uptight people…) but we are also very different.
Example, last night, sitting on the couch:
D: I want a new pressure washer.
Me: I want a new red lipstick.
D, while surfing the net, researching said pressure washer: I know, I could make my own! All I would need is a motor and 1008098908 little pieces and some crazy glue and a hose pipe.*
Me: One time, I ran out of glitter nail polish and I had to make my own.
D: Look at this car, it has 1 billion horsepower and it can go from 0 to 60 in 1.5 seconds.**
Me: I like it because it’s shiny and red.
D: I’m going to wash my car.
Me: Why? You just washed it last week.
D: Because the paint should be kept clean! When is the last time you washed your car?
Me: The last time I washed it was probably like 3 years ago. The last time you washed it because you were sick of how dirty it looked was probably a year ago. I’ll just let the rain take care of it. ***
I guess there really is a reason why they say men are from a different planet.
* This is not actually what he said. I wasn’t paying real attention to what he said, as I was watching HGTV at the time.
**Again, this is not really what he said. I was admiring the shiny red paint on the car.
***How eco-friendly of me.
