I’m starting a new category of posts called “Shit Gary Says.” It’s fascinating to me that men and women think so differently. For example, I always have a running list in my head of things that we are out of around the house and especially things I’m out of that I use every day. Gary, not so much. Here is a conversation we had this morning:
me: I’m going to Rite Aid at lunch today to pick up some things. Do you need anything for your bathroom?
Gary: No, not really. I think I’m good.
me: Ok, what about shampoo?
Gary: Oh yeah, I need some more shampoo.
me: Ok, what about conditioner? Do you need some of that too?
Gary: Hmm, yes, I’m out of conditioner too.
me: Ok, anything else?
Gary: No, not really.
me: What about soap? Do you need more soap?
me: Yes, soap. The stuff you use in the shower every day to clean yourself?
Gary: Oh yeah, I’m out of soap too.
me: Ok, so basically every single thing you use in the shower every day, you’re out of. Did I get that right?
Gary: Yeah, I guess so!
I don’t know why that was so difficult, but I find it cute that he needs me! Any of you have similar conversations with your men?
