Occassionally, I also believe in those stereotypes. Nevertheless, deep inside I sincerely believe they are deceptive. And recently I had small, seemingly meaningless occurrence that convinced me even more that men and women are so similar. And I want to present it to you.
Last month I have spent the whole Saturday decorating my favourite shoes and clothes, including my favourite skirt and jacket. Most of my clothes are pretty delicate. Therefore, I do wash them by hand with the purpose that they won’t get destroyed.
Moreover, I have spent many hours changing small details of my clothes with my sewing machine. Later, I checked if all of my shoes are completely clean and shiny. I polished them more than 2 hours! Could you imagine that? Right after my husband returned and saw that I was still taking care of my clothes, he couldn’t believe this! He laughed at me that I spend entire day on so boring things. This wouldn’t be so weird when you consider that he doesn’t even iron his shirt.
Last Wednesday my husband went for a business trip to NYC. When he returned I asked him how he had spent a free Sunday. My husband simply answered with the words “vinyl wraps nyc”. I didn’t know what he was talking about. It turned out that thi was simply changing the colour and general look of his car. As a woman, I was not able to think of the worst idea for the weekend. But when I was looking at my husband’s joy , it made me realized how much in common we have.
