I didn't know there were wires as such in one's brains; perhaps they meant nerve endings or connectors as a friend of mine used to explain brain actions and reactions.
Anyway, what they were saying on TV is that men's brains are wired from back to front on one's head, whereas women's brains are wired from side to side on their heads - they didn't explain whether it was from left to right, or right to left, or whether it matters. I hate it when TV programs are not precise in what they purport to teach you.
Basically the point they were making is that because of this different wiring men and women often misunderstand each other. Now I happen to know from personal experience that this is true; but I shall refrain from giving you details just in case this Blog post is read by someone I'd rather they didn't.
The program also said that women can have difficulty with spatial awareness. As an example, they mentioned an unhappy marriage where the wife constantly threw things at her husband when they were having an argument. Eventually, after many years, the husband went to a lawyer to seek a divorce. The lawyer asked him why it took him so long to decide to leave his wife. The man replied, "Her aim is getting better!"
Men on the other hand are different in that they can sometimes fail to see something that is obvious in front of them. Like the fact that it is her birthday or the wedding anniversary or some other date which for some reason or other should be celebrated in a special way. (Only a few more shopping days to Christmas and I forgot to buy some more Guinness).
Women can remember things that happened a million years ago and tell you in every details how you behaved at the time; and also make you apologise for something you don't even remember happened or why you are apologising at all.
Incidentally, can any of you reading this, seeing it is Christmas, name the reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh without looking it up on Google or anywhere else? I bet women can.
Apparently, men are also not able to use the eggs from the fridge from left to right, oldest first, rather than from right to left in reverse freshness order; even though they have been told to do so several times.
Personally, I'll admit of never having had this problem. I take the eggs from anywhere haphazard; from middle, left or right. It doesn't matter to me. Anyway, did the hens lay the eggs in order when they put them in the supermarket boxes that we buy?
Oh, one more thing about men. They put the toilet paper wrong on the roll. Just like in the picture above. Apparently, the paper should unfold towards you not from the back of the roll. To be fair to men though, there are no instructions on the packet telling them about this.
So there you have it. Differences between men's and women's brains can lead to several domestic difficulties and we should learn to live happily with one another.
How about you? Do you know of any other differences between men and women in their thinking or behaviour?
Now why are my cans of beer in the pantry next to the dog food when I remember well putting them in the fridge instead of the milk, yogurt, cheese and other dairy products?
