They ARE Different!!!

They ARE Different!!!

by Gina Valley

Men and women are different. Have you noticed?

Take weight for example.

Ask a man what he weighs, and a man will tell you what he weighs.

He will tell you exactly what he weighs.

He’ll tell you how long he’s weighed that much. He’ll tell you the first time he weighed that much. He’ll tell you who won the Super Bowl & how many hot wings he ate the year he first hit that weight.

He’ll tell you his high school weight, his college weight, his dad’s weight, his best friend’s weight.

He will brag if he is currently at his heaviest weight ever and will gladly weigh in front of you and let you see his abdomen to prove he is the heaviest he’s ever been.

He’ll happily holler his current weight across a crowded room to you, particularly if it has gone up due to a recent large, questionable meal (The same is true if his weight has recently gone down due to an unusually prolific off-loading experience on his part, but that’s really a topic for a different column).

He’ll proudly tell you the size of the clothes he’s just expanded into. He’ll show you the tags to prove it. He’ll even wear shirts with size printed right on the front and pants with the size embroidered onto the waistband for all to see.

He’ll prefer to weigh with jeans and boots on so as to up his number. He might even leave his keys, cell phone, and wallet in his pocket to give himself just a bit more heft in the gravitational attraction department.

He won’t even exhale before reading the scale.

There’s no shame, no concern, no self-consciousness.

You ask a man what he weighs and he will tell you.

You ask a woman what she weighs and she will stab you.

Or, maybe that’s just me.

Laugh Out Loud!


Do you share your gravitational attraction number with other people?  Or, is that a secret guarded more closely than Fort Knox? Why, do you suppose, we stress so much about that number? Shoot me a comment. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think. And, as always, thank you for stopping by and spending your time with me!

    I always weigh myselfl when he’s not near by. I don’t look that bad, but I am actually the same weight now that I was at 8 mos pregnant with my first. He would be appalled at the number.And, yes, he brags about losing two pounds.

    I rarely weigh myself. I know when i lose based on how my pants fit. I tell people i still carry a bit of baby weight bit fail to tell them the youngest is now 19. Hubby is on a diet so i always hear about how much he weighs

      I find the “jeans test” to be a good indicator, too, Becky. I’m still carrying baby fat, too, & my baby is 14! Lol!
