“Every woman knows exactly what she’s doing and why. If she says she “didn’t know” or had “no idea what she was doing”…she’s lying.”
Now, before the entire feminine persuasion gets riled up over that quote…I must inform you that those words were spoken by a very wise, very gentle, very sweet woman…
Those words were uttered one warm and sultry summer day after my dad came home and informed my mom that a neighbor woman was washing her car in a swimsuit and half of her swimsuit was up the crack of her butt.
As I remember it, the conversation went something like this…
“You can see her entire butt cheek!” my dad exclaimed. “How does she not know?”
To which my mother (with a look of disbelief on her face) replied… “When your underwear is riding up, can YOU feel it?”
My dad answered, “well…sure…but…”
And that’s when my mother’s gaze turned to me, even though she was still speaking to my dad, and she said . . . “Women always have a motive. Every woman…no matter their age…knows exactly what she’s doing and why. If she says she “didn’t know” or had “no idea what she was doing”…she’s lying.”
At that moment, even though my mom was actually talking to my dad, a life lesson was passed on to her son that has protected me from a lot of bad situations and relationships with worldly women who sought to manipulate or lure me into precarious situations.
In my pathetically humble opinion women might be manipulators. They might be more frustrating than an icy sidewalk in June. They might even be more of a royal pain the ass than an actual pain in the ass, but one thing’s for sure…women are not stupid, nor are they dumb, nor are they confused. With that said my mother’s words of wisdom ring true to this day.
Therefore… Men. Take note…
When a woman wears a certain perfume or a low-cut blouse…she knows why.
When a woman wears a shorter, tighter skirt or dress…she knows why.
When a woman styles her hair a certain way…she knows why.
When a woman looks in a certain direction more than once…she knows why.
When a woman flips her hair, giggles at a bad joke and gently touches a man’s arm…she knows why.
When a woman makes an effort to draw attention to herself…she knows why.
When a woman wears certain makeup or jewelry…she knows why.
When a woman does anything, wears anything, says anything . . . SHE . . . KNOWS . . . WHY.
I don’t know which is more pathetic . . . that men still believe women aren’t that smart or that women are still able to pull the wool over the eyes of men by pretending to be not that smart.
