Sometimes, I also believe in those stereotypes. Nevertheless, deep inside I sincerely believe they are deceptive. And not long ago I experienced small, seemingly meaningless event that showed me even more that men and women are very alike. And I want to share it with you.
Last month I have spent the whole Saturday caring for my favourite shoes and clothes, including my favourite skirt and pullover. Nearly all my clothes are very fragile. Consequently, I have to wash them by hand with the purpose that they won’t lose colour.
Furthermore, I have spent lots of time changing tiny details of my jackets with the sewing machine. Afterward, I double-checked that all of my shoes are completely clean and shiny. I polished them over 3 hours! Can you imagine this? When my husband returned and saw that I was still working on my clothes, he couldn’t believe it! He made fun at me that I spend entire day on so boring activity. It is not so weird when you consider that he wouldn’t even iron his shirt.
Last Monday my husband went for a business trip to NYC. When he returned I asked him how he had spent a free weekend. My husband just 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 overall look of the 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 , I realized how much in common we have.
