Things That Make You Go Hmmmm—Part II

!BQFpWEwB2k~$(KGrHgoOKjEEjlLmZ(ZQBJ29nmTBG!~~_1 LBeau tells me that he needs some blades for his razor. For years he has been using a Gillette Sensor razor, and he likes the regular Sensor blades. A few months ago he bought one of the Gillette Fusion razors. It's still in the drawer; he hasn't even removed it from the packaging.

"So what about your new Fusion razor?" I ask.

"Well, if I start using it, then I'll have to start buying blades for it, and they're really expensive," he replied.

What do you suppose he was thinking when he bought that new razor? If you have any ideas, please post them in your comments. I'd really like to understand him better, but after almost 39 years of marriage, I don't think it's going to happen.

I can tell you one thing, though. Men really are from Mars, and I haven't even read the book.

i have no idea why nor do i have any insights for you. i've only got 13 years of marriage experience and i have tons of stories like this one :)

My hubby has a drawer just like that too....Just when I think I've got him figured out....BAM!....he does something like this. MEN!

{{HUGS}}

Robin ;o)

That is funny. If you go to Costco you can get a better deal on blades.

Frugal Fine Living said...

LOL ... too funny! He probably bought the razor before pricing the blades.

You silly, silly women! LBeau meant exactly what he said, and his point is totally valid!

Men really are very simple creatures. If we say, "I'm hungry", there really is no deep meaning there---it means, "I am hungry and need/want food". Nothing more, nothing less.

LBeau succombed to advertising and bought the thing. Got it home. Realized his mistake. Did the only logical thing and buried the evidence.

What more explanation do you need?

BTW, I bought the damn thing too. $75 (SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS AMERICAN!) at Sam's for the replacement blades!!! If my freaking beard weren't so heavy, there is NO WAY I'd pay that exhorbitant price. As is, I pay it and rue the day.

And consider, Kathy: the more he spends on blades, the less he has for roses for you!!!!

Oh, and one more thing:

You ladies have NO (repeat, NO) room to talk about things of this nature.

Should you wish to discuss it, we can bring up the subjects of (in no particular order) nylons, makeup (is there a female alive who can pass a makeup counter without stopping? Didn't think so...), and shoes......

Honey, after 35 years being married to a man, you don't need to READ the book, you could WRITE it!

Let's have coffee someday and compare war stories!

Oops, Keetha. I went back and fixed my type. It's actually been almost 39 years.

So, if I draw Larry's name for Christmas, can I just give him Fusion razor blades? Oh, and I suggest a package for his stocking, too. We'll teach him not to buy things he's not going to use. Just don't buy him any other kind of razor blades. He'll either grow a bushy beard or use the Fusion. YIKES! Larry with a beard is a scary thought.

Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. I'll announce the winner on Tuesday.

While reading your post, I laughed out loud. Hubby wanted to read what was making me laugh. Puzzled look???? He said LBeau's comments made perfect sense to him! After soon-to-be 40 years, I just shake my head and go on just as you do. Let's write that book!

Joycee said...

Oh you should read the book. They are different animals and the book explains everything!

Sares said...

Maybe he's saving it for a special occasion? Or he's just trying to pinch his pennies!

Kathy, you are SO right. Men are DEFINITELY from Mars! I've been married 40 years, and still have the exact same reaction to things my husband does. Thank you for putting it into words for me. You now, misery does love company. (Not that I'm miserable, but trying to figure him out does make me miserable at times!)laurie

Kathy, go figure?! Craziness, huh?! Oh, loved your shiney silver! Pretty! Linda

LOL! I think he just wants to be able to say that he owns one...Christine
