I was browsing the shampoo/hair products aisle at the store the other day when I passed a young man on the phone. He was trying to sound casual but I could hear the underlying tension in his voice. Or maybe it was just his body language that gave his frustration away.
“Honey, I’m trying to find it for you. What? You want straightening shampoo and curl defining mousse?! Straightening shampoo? Are you sure? Well, ok… Just go easy on this stuff babe, it’s expensive.”
Ha! I felt a sudden rush of sympathy for the confused man. He clearly had trouble wrapping his head around the paradox of straightening shampoo and curl defining mousse. And clearly his wife/girlfriend was not taking the time to explain something like that to him because his head would explode. Women may be complicated creatures, but ah, the simplicity of men! I think we’re here to spice up their lives.
