    Last night Dh asks if I can sew the loop handle back on one of his belt containers (not sure what its called :-) ) So I get my cool curved needle out (DH calls it fish hook needle) and start working away. I told him it wouldn't be the prettiest but I would make it work. I told him how I was going to sew it. He goes you should teach me how to sew so I can fix things. I go super easy!

    He then asks, how do you get the thread to stay put and not come out. I go, a knot. A knot? thats its? I go yeah! no 3 square lines (he starts naming different ways I have never heard of) Nope, just a knot!

    DH: I could do that! Thats easy!

    I should have recorded him!

    And these are men that can tear an engine apart and put it back together with their eyes closed. LOL

    That is so funny!! I think men just go through life winging it until someone else shows them how to do things. That's why teenage boys have to work on cars in big groups, so that between them they can figure out what they're supposed to do. I notice that they never say "I put this on this way", they'll always say "my uncle said this is how it should be put on" that way if they're wrong their uncle looks like the fool not them. I used to get such a kick out of watching and listening to my son and his friends! Now women on the other hand will point blank ask another woman how she does something. The other woman is glad to tell you but first she has to think of the most logical way she can come up with. If it works out we both look like genius'. If it doesn't we just go off and point blank ask another woman. That's why men can't ask for directions. They'll just look at the map and guess. LOLOL!!

    Sorry guys, no offense intended. Just my own observations.

    Apropos of nothing (but since young men were mentioned), this is making the viral rounds today:

    Cracks me up.

    Sorry about going OT.
