Okay, I will bite. Of course you have got to realize some things about me.
(1) I met my husband working at a gold mine where we both worked manual labor
(2) The only diamond I own is a teeny tiny one inserted into a gold nugget
(3) We bought my wedding ring at a pawn shop for $25 (in 1975, so I guess it was not cursed) and it still works.
(4) I prefer bluejeans and t shirts and outdoors but the reality is I work a desk and wear downtown clothes.
(5) I have no china or silver
That is not to say I am not always right, but I don't think I am high maintenance.

Perhaps now is the time to mention Mars, and appropriate to post the Rules from the International Council on Man Laws
*Under no circumstance may 2 men share an umbrella, even if it's a golf umbrella with a beer maker's name on it.
*It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:
*When a heroic dog saves its master
*The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse
*After wrecking your boss's car
*When she is using her teeth
*Any man who brings a camera to a stag night may be legally killed and eaten by his friends.
*If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is OFF LIMITS forever unless AFTER you actually marry her.
*Moaning about the brand of free beer in a friend's fridge is forbidden. However, complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.
*No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your friend's birthday is strictly optional. At that point, you must celebrate at a strip club of the birthday boy's choice.
*In the mini-bus, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.
*When stumbling upon other guys watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.
*You may fart in front of a woman only after you have brought her to climax. If you trap her head under the covers for the purpose of flatulent entertainment (commonly known as the "Dutch Oven"), then she's officially your girlfriend.
*It is permissible to drink a fruity alcohol drink ONLY when you're sunning on a tropical beach...and only when it's delivered by a topless model, and it's free.
*Only in situations of extreme moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another guy in the testicles.
*Unless you're in prison, NEVER fight naked.
*Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Case Closed.
*If a man's fly is down, you didn't see anything. A security breech at Los Pantalones is the other guy's problem and an opportunity for bonding with the rest of your friends, at his expense.
*Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate an actual working knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports fans.
*A man in the company of a hot, suggestively-dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.
trying to understand and cure womanhood
That's a tall order. He||, some of us still struggle locating the damn on-off button.
i love your quote from "last tango in paris". best wishes. belle
We men wouldn't want to "cure womanhood" that's for sure.
But a basic road map to the workings of their mind and heart would be helpful.
As Marlon Brando says in Last Tango in Paris to his deceased wife ""I may be able to understand the secrets of the universe, but ... I'll never understand the truth about you."
We see scientists and medical professionals and pharmaceutical companies clawing and clamoring to understand everything from to universe to hep c... don't see anyone foolish enough to actually invest in trying to understand and cure womanhood, do you? :)
Of course we are-mysterous and delightful. Just add chocolate and stir-yummm!
Before all the women in the group come to my home bearing torches....I think women are the delight of the universe...even If they are a bit of a mystery...:)
