The difference between men and women.

First the visual evidence:

As you know, I can’t go outdoors in the daylight… yet.  Stupid yellow jackets.  And in any case I’m ill because my husband generously shared his virus with me.

Yesterday he did me a huge favor- he watered my garden which was in desperate need of watering.  I asked him if he’d also pick green beans for supper.  And herein lies the difference between men and women.

On your left, you’ll see three green beans– the sum total of his harvest.

On your right, you’ll see what I picked this morning before the sun came out from behind the clouds.

And that, my friends, is the difference between men and women in a non-sporting activity – aside from Tom Stronach who would have made sure to find every single bean.

My husband knows I’m posting this – he suggested the post, and even took the photo, because he thought it was pretty funny when I showed him the difference.  What’s even funnier is I don’t like green beans.  He loves them so I grow them.

    Ha! And before I got to the bit where I was generously named my retort was going to be that in our house Ishbel would have come back and said “Oh, sorry I forgot”. Fine, only just, once I get it on the plate for her, but picking and choosing, that’s another story.

    Yup, definitely a difference.
    You’re such a good person. I’d probably do the same for my hubby though. :)

  3. Amber – ;) You would pick those beans for him!

  4. Tom, you are meticulous. You wouldn’t miss a bean.

    Sorry about the virus:(

    Nah…the difference between men and women is THEY wouldn’t grow them unless they planned to eat them. B|

  7. Anny – he likes to eat them, he just doesn’t like to pick them!

  8. Thanks for all the comments, Sandra – feeling a little better today. I think by Tuesday I’ll be fine!

  9. Maybe he needs (better) glasses…

  10. Better contacts, Marie.
