Crossed Wires

Women often expect men to intuitively pick up on what they’re thinking, without actually saying it. They assume that if they yawn and say, “I’m so tired, I think I’ll go to bed now” and wander off, men will brush their teeth, gargle with breath-freshener, put on some deodorant and slip into something more comfortable to join them there for a session of making love. Instead, many men grunt, go back to the fridge for another beer and settle down on the sofa to watch sport on the TV. It’s never occurred to them that the woman in their life is talking in indirect code. The woman, sitting alone in bed, eventually falls to sleep alone, feeling unloved and unwanted.
