It seems to me…
Have you ever noticed that men and women define “spring fever” differently? When the weather turns warm, men think of grabbing a beer and relaxing outside in a comfortable lounge chair and taking a nap. The most exerting undertaking might be a barbeque or pickup game of baseball.
Women, on the other hand, become hyperactive wanting to start cleaning everything (most of which doesn’t really need it). Next it is rearranging the comfortably laid out house. “Why don’t we see how the sofa looks over against that wall and the chair over here?” “We really need some new lights for this room” (ignoring the perfectly functional lights stored in the garage, basement or attic). “And while we are at it, let’s push out the bathroom and move the bedroom over to the other side of the house.”
The outside yard doesn’t escape spring unscathed. “We need some new bushes along side the garage.” “Don’t you think that 40-foot tree would look better over against the back fence?”
I’ve never really understood the motivation for all of this (but then I won’t pretend to understand women). Maybe it is something similar to allergies that always come around the same time each year.
Oh well, got to get busy. There is some furniture to move. And sorry but I forgot that I need to run down to the hardware store for something. I’ll be right back…
That’s what I think, what about you?
