Monkey, Monkey, Underpants

“That’s what I’m saying … it’s a big bag of weird in there!”

Ok, so you are probably thinking I’ve lost my mind right about now, but truly, I haven’t.

My husband and I have had many conversations about the way a woman’s mind works vs. the way a man’s mind works. As Jeff Foxworthy put it, a woman’s mind is an 8-lane superhighway and a man’s mind is a little dirt path.  Women’s brains seem to go and go and go, whereas men can apparently just shut it down when they are tired, ready to relax, or go to sleep.

Now, wouldn’t that be nice?!

Lo and behold, I was lying in bed watching this episode of the Gilmore Girls on my Kindle the other night (ear plugs in so as not to disturb my husband) while I was trying to fall asleep. Derek was happily snoring away, when I literally laughed out loud and said, “YESSSS!” …. then promptly slapped my hand over my mouth and checked to make sure I hadn’t awakened him. 

I finally remembered to show it to him today, and he thought it was pretty funny too.  The perfect example of the inner workings of a woman’s mind.

So ladies, can you relate? Is your brain an 8-lane superhighway?

    I know exactly what you mean. I can be thinking of one thing and 5 minutes later realize I was wayyyyy off track.

      Me too, Mom! LOL I think the only time I Have true clarity of thought is when I am engrossed in my artwork. If I’m just trying to be “still”, my thoughts go everywhere!
