It was just the wives outside last night talking while the men went to the Stars hockey game. Well, we were having a few drinks and were free flowing at the mouth. (not vomit) ha.
Anyways, they fessed up and said that half the time they have NO IDEA what I might be talking about. I laughed pretty hard and told them not to worry.... That they are not the only ones. Many people don't understand where my train of thought goes. I told them my sister is much like me, and she does get me.... but not a whole lot of other people. It's kind of isolating, but that's just me.

I think us TALKING about it was enough to let them see that I TOO understand this about myself and break down some of the barriers we have had between us. We all ended up laughing about it and have been having a really cool time since.

They should have opened their yaps up before this and said something to you. :(

I'm glad you got it worked out though. Better late than never.

I only 'know' you from the board, Shanna, but the idea of you having a train of thought strikes me as odd. I can't imagine you with a train of thought. You strike me more as someone with a trollycar of thought, it zips all over town, skeetering down little side streets and making dozens of stops per day, with a cute bell that ding-ding-dings to get people out of the way.

And the conductor wears a boater and a bow tie, and his name is Clancy.

Haaa haaaaa.. Yes. It's something like that. :laugh: In person, I can carry a conversation, but it's not typically about "girl" things. The other wives seem to be void of any type of conversation that is intellectually stimulating. When I do hop in on the conversation, my contribution may have properties that reach too far above their heads. I have to keep it "simple" with them.

Shanna,

I have to admit that I am not a good "girl' things conversationalist. When your friends would be talking about those things, I'd probably be shuffling my feet, feeling like a fish out of water, hoping that Shanna would take the conversation on her trolley car ride of thought (Dan, you have a way with words).

Shanna, you can hang out with us. Our first fireside wine and chat this season, was Saturday night and we never have "his and her" conversations. As a matter of fact I did hear and I quote,"Mary Beth, you ignorant slut. " The conversation was about old SNL skits with Chevy Chase and Jane Curtain. Where it went from there .......who knows.

One of the things they were talking about was recipes. My eyes were going crossed. AND YESSSSS... the feet shuffle. When I proposed the question of oxygen and hydrogen.... they laughed and said something like .. OH NOOOO... DON'T GO THERE WITH ME. I mean... they couldn't even THINK about it. They could have cared less about automobiles that run off of hydrogen. I think it's cool. They were more interested in who had the best deal on pedicures. It is hard for me to slip into their mode. It's not natural. :p

I think I'd be okay with recipes but probably not for too long. I'm not the cook, I'm the person you try out the recipe on. Unless, we're talking beer brewing recipes, then I'm be fascinated. Pedicures? That's fish out of water time for me once the conversation went over 5 minutes. I'd definitely would like the hydrogen and oxygen conversation.

One thing I do enjoy though is having "girl" conversations with guys and "guy" conversations with girls. That is usually fun. It's nice to get a different perspective.

I'm glad you got it worked out. The wives aren't very deep thinkers, though, are they? I don't think I could handle conversing with them for very long without copius amounts of alcohol. :laugh:

THAT is precisely what it took. After enough alcohol I told them that their thought process didn't root very deep. :laugh: They didn't get it. BWAHAHAAAAHAAAA

Did you try conversing with them about tornados? Maybe that would work. :p Shanna is the only one I can discuss tornados with. We are booking our next vacation with the storm chasers.

You mention tornado to them and all they will tell you is that they are going to the tunnel if one is coming. If I said F2 to Wife #1, she would think I was talking about some new Hummer. :laugh:

I think you are in the wrong neighborhood.
I wouldn't be able to talk to your neighbors either without what Kelli describes as "copious amounts of alcohol".

I don't know why..laugh but I always imagine Edward Scissorhands movie when you describe your housewives/neighbors..probably all wrong..just what pops in my head

Well THANK YOU. After being around them, I really do have to reflect on myself and ask... who has the problem... them or me? I always conclude that it's just this sort of thing that makes the world go round.

I could probably handle both.. i like conversation about cars /and/ i like to know where there's cheap pedicures because i'm cheap, but i can't seem to paint my own toenails for the life of me.

I'm a weird combination of tom-boy/girly.

I also learned very early on how to conversate with all types given my friends would rather not carry on a 40 minute conversation about whether i should have gone with the supercharged engine or not.

However we don't talk about recipes either.. a lot of sex talk now that i think of it.. dirty, raunchy ****..

hmm
