Thursday's thoughts

Calvin and Hobbes is a favorite in this house!

Call me sentimental, but I like this quote:

“Woman was taken out of man; not out of his head to top him, nor out of his feet to be to be
trampled underfoot; but out of his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be loved."

My husband might agree with this quote: ;D

“Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.”
-Oscar Wilde

and then there's this Reverse Psychology mumbo jumbo: ;D

“A foolish man tells a woman to stop talking, but a wise man tells her that her mouth is extremely beautiful when her lips are closed”

Do you know HGF - our 2 sons and hubby love C&H. We have several copies of the comic books.

I used to read it and just look and wonder what they all got to laugh about. Then I decided to show hubby a page I'd just read and asked him what was so funny and he went into a fit of the giggles he read it to me and I laughed too.

After that I used to lie in bed at night and ask him to read them to me and we'd both be in knots. It must have been the way he read them out. Now I see the humour - I'm a slow starter.

And... to think of the romance that goes on in some bedrooms. xx

Ha! Nice try! Your post was obviously an attempt to get us men to comment on our womenfolk and get into trouble!

Next you ladies will be asking "does this dress make my bum look big?"

( which we think but dare not say "No. It's your bum that makes your bum look big.")

Dang. Did I say that out loud?

Thought I'd better post anonymously in any case. I know. Coward. ;-)

I love the ones where Calvin and Hobbes are at odds with each other...Calvin calls Hobbes, 'Stipeypants''s the one where they're in the back seat of the car, and the imaginary line as been drawn, yet Hobbes has to stick just one eensyweensy fingertip over!!
hahaha.....ah, doesn't that describe marriage and children sometimes!!!! ;D

My, but did this lil'ole blogger get an Anonymous, I'm assumin' Scotsman, all riled up?! Don't worry, sugah, smooth those feathers down, and give a listen...we womenfolk aren't here to ask ya those things, darlin...we know how good we look! Howevah, you are a smart man, to stay incognito, I must say! ;D

(...yes, a long, tiring day at work and a glass or two of Cabernet brings out an ever present remnant of a soft, southern (American) accent ;D)

Howdy Lucy,
thanks for stoppin by! :)

Well, look what I found, commando stealth commenting at its best...and here I thought you were working so studiously at your desk last night, TB! :)
