Guys and Gossip

I almost fell off the kitchen chair just now when I read that „Guys Gossip“… That is something that I would have never thought of in a million years!!! My golly; I had to read it in a news paper to confirm my thoughts after all these years…. Thank you newspaper article for letting me know that my thoughts were true…. I really feel relieved now and can get on with my Sunday!!!

Plus, not only the gossip article there was another one in another weekend paper that showed how guys brains are working with thoughts… No scientific stuff, but more categorized about life, and what you guys think about makes me wonder ????

Back to gossip connected to the brain: This whole gossip business made me think and I know I have written about gossip before, but never in this context of each section of a guy’s brain what have they gossiped about or are gossiping about.

So each section of the guy’s brain I guess inspires guys to gossip or is it talk…. I’m confused here

1. “ Beer section”: Now that is something I know has potential for hours of discussion and to gossip about who drinks which brand of beer and where can you get the best deal on a six-pack. Defiantly gossip potential here!

2. “S…. section” : You all know what I am talking about here, without spelling the word out. There too is an endless gossip topic that guys can dream about; compare notes on the subject and fantasize about something for hours, but first a couple of beers to get the conversation rolling…

3. “Making money section”: The most important thing of all or not??? The size of your wallet makes you a man and the thinner it is ….. Sorry, most chicks won’t like you, nor will you have many so called friends either.. But you can gossip about each other’s salaries or how much the boss earns and “why aren’t you earning that much?” Money is a topic which can be gossiped about forever!

4. “ Hot air- doing nothing section”: Oh, now doing nothing and just shooting the breeze about nothing and trying to look good in front of the other guys is a past time for many guys or just talking about nothing trying to impress some gal or someone else.. But you can gossip with the other guys about this and tell them how they BSed some chick into believing something… Life at its finest hour!!

And last but not least on the gossip / brain list was:

5. “Eating section”: Food definitely a must because who has eaten at the best restaurant or who’s partner can cook the best meal or even exchanging your favorite recipes and maybe even start a cooking club to combine all the above mentioned so that the gossip is focused and not just aimless conversation. Good gossip is the key to life and without it we would all be lost!

As for the chicks brain there was a diagram too, but I’ll get back to that later on this week.

Guys enjoy gossiping whatever the topic maybe!

On the Bus

I normally travel on public transport because I would like to do my small share for the environment but that is not what I want to write about here.

Have you ever taken a good look around you to see what everyone is up too while they try to pass their time on the bus either traveling to work or just out and about. Everyone seems either engrossed in their mobile devices or some sort of book. I personally find the mobile device users the best group to observe, because they always seem to be in their own world oblivious to what’s going on around them.

When someone is talking on their cell phone (recently a young woman) who was telling her friend how she broke-up with her boyfriend and how she showed him that’s how life is.

The conversation went something like this:
You know … I told Tom in no uncertain terms that if he didn’t take me out on Friday evening that I would leave him and you won’t believe what he said…He said no I am not going to take you out on Friday evening because I want to watch the soccer game on TV with my friends. And I told him that he had to take me out, but he had the nerve to say no to me and that I could go out with you or one of my other friends.

So, as you can image I said- then good! And told him if he doesn’t change his mind within the next 10 minutes I am going to leave him for good.
Then he said: good you can go, but I am watching soccer on TV no matter what!
Well, I flipped out and called him #$& and *%! And that didn’t even phase him. What kind of guy is he? …..a bit of silence …. (Just a note-she was talking so loud that the whole bus could hear her and enjoy the story too.)

Well (she went on) I left him and went to my mom’s place and went out with Mark on Friday evening and we had a great time together and I ended up at his place.
I should have gone out with him ages ago. I am not sure if Tom even misses me? I haven’t seen him but heard that he went out with Kathy after the soccer game on Friday evening. Can you just image that; he doesn’t even miss me. You know I was the best thing he ever had and he doesn’t even realize it.

What’a jerk! I know in the next couple of days he will come crawling on his knees begging me to come back.

Unfortunately, I can’t say how the story ended because she got off the bus. Maybe if I am lucky she will board the bus and continue the moving story of how she left her boyfriend.
Who left who is always the question here because I can only hear one side of the story.

Then there are the social network cell phone users who are hoping that someone has contacted them or they have gained a so called new friend or they have to report to everyone that they are sitting on the bus.

I mean really isn’t that something you have always wanted to know or that they are sending text messages and their phone makes a sound every couple of minutes – they are someone and they are being contacted. What more would you want from life?

I wonder sometimes how I manage to get through my bus trip without receiving 50 text messages or not participating in some social network or telephoning and telling the world about my problems.

Am I the odd one out or has life changed so much that everyone can’t survive with a cellular device? I don’t want to be reachable 24/7. I want a life outside my cell phone even on the bus.

Maybe that’s why I have taken to watching all these people because it’s getting to be just as good as a TV program. I will stay tuned to my next bus adventure and if it’s good I will share it with you.
