The Differences Between Us

Last night, my wife and I were watching television when a commercial came on. It was for a children's toy that was part chalk board, part speak and say. A neat contraption. I muttered to Tonya that they never had anything like that when I was a kid.

After that commercial ended, another quickly rolled through.

Wife: That was cool.
Me: That's what I said.
Wife: What are you talking about?
Me: What do you mean?
Wife: I don't think we're talking about the same thing.

Rather than continue with the conversation verbatim, let me break it down. The basics about men and women can be easily explained like this.

When I watch a commercial, I watch the commercial for what it advertises or what it says. When my wife watches a commercial and the spokes woman is wearing a particular kind of dress or a blouse, that's what my wife is watching.

I can't think of how many times we're watching the same thing and I comment on what's ON the screen and she's commenting about what's IN the screen.

I wonder what that says about our differences.
