Wonder Women

Well, y'know, it's not easy to explain women; they're just so hard to understand at times. I'm not only referring to how they'd painstakingly spend hours using a pair of tweezers to carefully extract their eyebrows; and then when their eyebrows are all gone, they'd draw them back again with a pencil.

They generally find it hard to trust their husbands 100 percent, no matter how long they've been married. How many of you men would put your wives' names as the beneficiaries when you buy a life insurance? I think most of us men would almost automatically put our wives' names as the beneficiaries. But when women buy a life insurance, they almost always put the children's names first, or their parents' names as the beneficiaries. The husbands' names would be last on their list.

When a woman marries, she'd expect her husband to be totally devoted to her. She wants to be given the priority even over the husband's mother. But years down the road, when she has her own son, and that son marries, she'd expect her son to be totally devoted to her, and not to the daughter-in-law. By then she would have forgotten that she was once married to someone's son too, and demanded that same full devotion.

Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I have long accepted the above as some of those unexplained mysteries of this world. I have survived it over the last 15 years and I've come to a point where all those don't matter no more. She's always been the crazy woman I got to know years ago. It's the madness and crazy things that we both share that matter the most.

To those men out there who're not married to one of these creatures yet, be prepared for all those peculiarities. They are like computers, you see. You'll take a very long time to choose the perfect model with all the perfect specifications that suit your purpose. But the moment you commit to one, you will find so many other models in the market that seem to be able to perform better!

Thankfully, I am an old-fashioned and sentimental man. My first computer is still the best model for me.

Wife reading your blog huh?

One day a genie appeared to a Sabahan and offered to grant him one wish.

The man said: "I wish you'd build a bridge from here to Peninsular so I could drive there for treasure hunts anytime"

The genie frowned" I don't know. It sounds like quite an undertaking,” he said. "Just think of the logistics. The supports required reaching the bottom of the ocean, the concrete, and the steel! Why don't you pick something else?"

The man thought for a while and then said, "Okay, I wish to understand women.".

The genie was silent for a minute, then said
"So how many lanes did you want on that bridge?"

Hehehe... I wish! Been asking her to check out my blog, but she said she can't the time for it! Can you believe that? Her hubby's own blog! If she gets to read it eventually, who knows, I might get lucky!

Oh! If it's too troublesome for the genie, how about just forget about that bridge and gimme a personal jumbo jet instead? That should be easier?
