Top-five things chicks don't get about us

    I was inspired by a couple of off-the-cuff comments by the wife in the course of a casual evening in front of the tube: what don't women get about us?

    My top-5

    1. Pulp Fiction.

    2. Thursday night football ("you've got Saturday, Sunday and Monday ... why do you need Thursday?" asked Mrs. Hondo).

    3. The Sopranos.

    4. Cargo shorts.

    5. Emergency nines ("You play 18 holes ... why do you need nine more?")

    Weigh in guys ...

    1. It's the wallet that says "Bad Motherfucker on it"

    2. Why was Oprah on 5 days a week?

    3. ***Never seen an episode, can't even be a smart ass on this one***

    4. Because my stone-washed cutoffs got too tight in the junk-holder

    5. That's just the excuse we use go we can drink for 2 hours after.

    Love Pulp Fiction. And football. And The Sopranos.

    No one looks good in cargo shorts. If they're your version of "fat clothes", wear them at home, not out.

    I'm meh about golf, but if it's fun for you, enjoy.

    (For the record, I'm very happily married.)

    I look great in cargo shorts.

    What my wife has never understood about golf is how after I've spent those 4-5 hours with my buddies, maybe for the first time in several months, I have gleaned no information about kids, jobs, relationships, nothing. "What do you talk about the entire time?" "Golf."

    I'm a reporter (well, was at one point) and I ask questions for a living...I don't put on that hat away from work.

    My wife knows most of my friends pretty well...she can ask her own queries.

    Why would any man be with a woman who doesn't get Pulp Fiction? Shit, I've never met anyone who didn't love PF.

    Wife bought me the only pair of cargo shorts I have, and I fucking hate them. I keep them not only because she bought them but because they are baggy and dark brown and might be useful when I become old and lose control of my bowels.

    Remember when Esquire had a monthly feature called "Ten Things You Don't Know About Women?" Wife said they should rename it, "Ten MORE Things You Don't Know About Women." True, but women don't understand men very well, either.

    My list of things that my wife doesn't get about me:
    1. Why The Three Stooges unfailingly make me laugh.
    2. Why at age 54 I still have a couple big boxes of comic books.
    3. My fascination with seeing female stars -- or, hell, female non-stars -- naked in movies. (And why I'm severely pissed that Sarah Jessica Parker never got naked.)
    4. My love of bad sci-fi movies. Especially if they have naked chicks.
    5. Tom Clancy novels.

    1. I don't want to be "fixed" or "figured out" and am not interested in assisting in any efforts to do so.
    2. A lot of times when we do stuff, we don't put a lot of thought into it - so you shouldn't either.
    3. We aren't as complicated as you might wish we would be.
    4. We wear cargo shorts because we don't carry purses.
    5. We watch the NBA and NFL drafts for the same reasons you watch The Bachelor or American Idol.

    1. We really prefer Chardonnay to beer.
    2. We enjoy a good cry as much as a woman.
    3. We're mourning the demise of soap operas.
    4. We prefer cuddling to sex.
    5. We dress to impress other guys.
