Sometimes, I also believe in those set patterns. Nonetheless, deep inside I genuinely believe they are deceptive. And not long ago I experienced small, seemingly meaningless situation that convinced me even more that men and women are so alike. And I want to share it with you.
A while ago I have spent the entire Saturday repairing my favourite shoes and clothes, including my favourite dress and blouse. Most of my clothes are very gentle. In consequence, I must wash them by hand in order that they don’t get destroyed.
What’s more, I have spent a lot of hours changing tiny details of my clothes with my sewing machine. Later, I checked if all of my shoes are absolutely clean and shiny. I polished them more than 2 hours! Can you believe in this? Right after my husband came home and saw that I was still taking care of my clothes, he couldn’t believe it! He laughed at me that I spend the whole day on so boring activity. This wouldn’t be so weird when you consider that he wouldn’t even iron his clothes.
Last Monday my husband had to go for a business trip to NYC. When he returned I wanted to know how he had spent a free Saturday. My husband simply answered with the words “vinyl wraps nyc”. I didn’t know what he was talking about. It turned out that that was nothing else than changing the colour and general look of the car. As a woman, I could not think of the worst idea for the weekend. But when I was looking at my husband’s enthusiasm , it made me realized how much similar we are.
