Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Why I have a successful marriage

A few days ago Krys went shopping. She came home with new reddish shoes (she loves shoes and she is strangely obsessed with them, but I'm reasonably certain it's a chick thing). She tried them on and strolled around checking them out. They look pretty nice. She tried them on with a few pairs of jeans she owns, and said something to the effect that she had no pants to wear with them. Now, what I said is very important, and speaks to why I have a successful marriage (even though I know nothing about women):

I told her that she should go buy more pants.

Krys told me a few days later that most men would tell their wives to take the shoes back. That never occurred to me. Don't you want your wives to be happy? She should just buy pants that match the shoes!

There you have it, gentlemen: how to have a successful marriage. When in doubt, suggest shopping for clothes. It's gold!

So why does it say, "You know you want to read more!" when you have no more to say?

Yeah, I know. I have to figure out how to make that appear only when it's true. I'm a computer idiot, so you'll have to bear with me.

You need to post a photo of the shoes--any woman would understand.

It's not that the pants didn't match the shoes--the jeans aren't long enough to cover the tops of the shoes. I'll need to go buy some 'tall' size jeans.

I have to force myself to stay out of malls and shoe shops for extended periods of time in order to have lunch money. Shoe shopping is quite addictive...

Clues that I am single:

1) What's the deal with women and shoes? I mean, they're frickin' shoes, for cryin' out loud.

2) As far as marriage, my opinion -why head to the bookstore when you have a really cool library, you know what I'm sayin'?

I guess you don't.

Gordon - the mystery of women and shoes has confounded male experts for centuries. It's best not to delve too deeply into it.

And if I'm reading your analogy correctly, whenever I went to check out books at the library they were already checked out. So when I found a really good bookstore, I stuck with it. There you go.

You rock, Burgas.

This is also why Kevin and I have a successful marriage (only with me it is all about the handbag)...
