Man Logic – Do You Get It?

Man logic.  Men can say women are too confusing to understand, but at least our train of though makes sense.  I’m gonna take a risk here and say the feminine side of our species does a whole lot better job thinking long term than the men.  Their motto:  Get ‘er done.

Let me ‘splain.

Wednesday of last week we were smack dab in the middle of the nasty cold front.  I’d somehow managed to wrangle a whopping ten minutes to sit in my favorite recliner before tapping off the day by putting my kiddos into bed.  That’s when this conversation when down between me and my oldest daughter:

Oldest:  “Whoa!  There she goes again!”

I dragged my focus from my computer in time to see my youngest go whizzing by on her tiny six year-old legs.

Me:  “What’s she doing?”

Oldest:  “Running in circles.”

I watch for a minute, and sure enough she circles around through the dining room and back into the main living area off the kitchen.

Me:  “Why’s she doing that?”

Oldest: “Dad told her to.”

Me:  “But it’s time for bed.  She needs to chill.”

Oldest:  “She can’t. She’s gotta get his steps in.”

Me:  “His what?”

Oldest:  “His steps.  She’s carrying his FitBit.”

Oh. My. God.

I sat there with my mouth open for a good minute and and tried to reconcile that my husband delegated out his exercise.

Think that’s bad?  He’s got a permanent pattern of circular scars on his tummy from the time he decided steaming out his shirt would be a good idea…while he was wearing it.

So, back to my original question.  Man Logic – Do you get it?  What’s the most bizarre demonstration of man logic you’ve come across?

Oh.  And if you don’t hear from me again, it’s because I dared to tell the steamer story.  🙂

    OMG that is too funny! And totally believable. They are definitely a weird species.

    Laughing out loud as I put this visual in my head! I’ll have to think about which man logic ones I could tell that would be even close to as funny as this. I’m sure I’ve got some from my 60+ years of knowing the male species.
    Thanks for the chuckles.

    Yeah, I sometimes wonder about the manly subspecies. I’m sure there are lots of stories hiding in my head that are refusing to come out right now, but I do remember once Hubster grabbed the lid off the crock pot, cursed because he burnt his fingers, then grabbed the lid again. As if it had somehow cooled off in two seconds. I refrained from saying, “Pot holder. It’s not rocket science.” Marriage saved.

      Yeah, our guys aren’t always long-term thinkers, are they?
