Life on the Run

MEN ARE WAFFLES. WOMEN ARE SPAGHETTI. Cryptic way of saying men and woman are entirely, totally different. But not so cryptic as that. This is wisdom every woman who lives with, or even communicates with, men must own.

A man's brain is constructed in such a way as to resemble a waffle. It's made of many many small squares into which said man files information. He has a square for the wife. One for the dog, One for the game, One for the car, One for the insurance, One for takeout the garbage, A sub square for don't throw clothes on the floor, keep track of own socks, use deodorant... but those sub squares are not nearly as important as the larger squares where current information goes. Immediately he hears a comment or remark, he stores it in the appropriate square. Meanwhile he is DOING something else. And since multitasking is not his strong suit that "something else" he is doing takes precedence over all other information he is being fed from an outside source. Example: You (wife, girfriend, one night stand, fling - whatever) are in the kitchen nursing the baby, cooking dinner and talking on the phone to your best crony. Multitasking to the max.

Suddenly the kitchen curtains catch on fire and flames and toxic smoke are everywhere. You and the baby high tail it to the TV room where Jim is currently located. You scream: "Jim! The kitchen's on fire."

Jim senses a new presence behind the couch where he is sprawled and turns around to see what it might be. You are still shouting "kitchen's on fire" at the top of your lungs, gesticulating and pointing kitchenward meaning that he better get the hell into the kitchen and put out that fire. NOW!

Jim acknowledges your presence and inhales deeply. Then he exhales a huge, irritated sigh and explains: “I'm watching the game."

One square at a time. Ladies. One square at a time.


Women receive information and immediately stash it will nilly somewhere in their curly brains. I portray women here as harboring a brain like a large plate of cooked spaghetti. You pull on one and they all move.
