Boy Stuff and Girl Stuff
Men and women both have lots of shit.
But the shit we collect is very different.
I have too many:
- Clothes (especially sweaters)
- Shoes – none of which are comfortable
- Makeup products, but I’m still searching for the right stuff
All of these things are crucial, as I am sure you would agree, but I maybe could cut down just a little.
My husband has too many:
- Broken things that he may fix someday
- Pieces of scrap wood
- Identical sneakers
- Little notes to himself
As I’m sure you can also see, most of what my husband has is completely unnecessary. Except for tools. But the last time I needed a screwdriver and he wasn’t home, I went into the garage where he keeps his massive impressive tool box – and it was locked. So no tools for me. Gee, thanks.
He also has power tools and chain saws and more than one tractor, but he can keep those. In exchange, I will keep all my jewelry, which I did not even list, since you can never have too much jewelry.
When we travel (which is seldom, since we can’t bear to leave our things), we both tend to overpack.
I bring too many hair products. I may need shampoo, creme rinse, root lift, mousse, gel, hairspray, dryer and curling iron. And a headband in case none of the above works. Because you never know.
My husband brings too much underwear. Because, I guess, you never know.
Here’s what I wish I had more of:
A SENSE OF ADVENTURE
Here’s what I wish he had more of:
A SENSE OF URGENCY
