Last night "T" and I were talking about my upcoming girls night this weekend. He was asking me if I had heard from everyone and what we where planning on doing? I rhymed off who I had heard from and what time they were planning on arriving. As far as what we were doing, well not much would be what we are all hoping for I replied. "No cooking, no cleaning, no work, no kids, no husbands.....just perfect girl time....lots of giggles, lots of wine, lots of chatting....probably some tears of laughter and some of sadness.....and most importantly lots of SNACKS"!!!!
This is where everything becomes very confusing for "T".....as I finished my little rant about what girls look for in a perfect weekend away....he just looked at me and said..."well now don't get them to bring too much snack stuff or you guys won't want to have any dinner"........WHAT???....and then it hit me.....guys just don't get it.... do they.....hello, wake-up pal....its all about the snacks for women....its about the endless array of "appies" flowing from the minute your weekend starts to the minute you have to set off for home, its about how many different cheesy dips with fancy crackers you can consume, its about trying your friends cousins sisters mothers famous summer appetizer that you have been hearing about for years, and it is most definitely about the candy that you may or may not consume but just had to bring because it looked so fun at the store......... and then after all of that is done and you think you can't stuff another thing into your now much bigger stomach and expanded thighs, you stop for ice cream on your way back to your real life....just to make the blissful weekend away last that few minutes longer....yes my dear husband women don't really care about going out for dinner, it is all about the snacks!!!
But instead of going on another tangent......I just looked at him and smiled...and said "yes T you are right, we better not eat too many munchies or we might spoil our dinner"....
