Man Theory


I am single.

I have no husband, nor am I in the market for a husband. 

Therefore, I have a theory.

Men should be like yard tools.

Yard tools?  Yes………………let me explain.

You keep yard tools hanging in your garage, out of sight.  You only take them down when you need them……… to use them for the purpose they were intended.  When you are finished, you hang them back up in the garage, never giving them a second thought………….until they are needed again.


At least………..that’s my theory.

    Great analogy!! But honestly, my garden tools bring me more joy than my husband sometimes. At least they’re useful!

    I like this theory. Alas, my husband had overloaded our garage with so many power tools for his job that there’s no darn place to hang yard tools to make them out of sight, out of mind! Foiled! By a man, at that!

    My “man” would have to be the vacuum or the toilet bowl scrubber seeing as though I don’t garden all that much.

    I need a little more from a man than “not all that much!”

    Hey– my Jenni commented! Woot!

    Yor theory cracked me up… but I kinda hope my future man would get more use. I like my frying pan. Can I make him cooking untensils or cookware instead?

    Great theory! And then they wouldn’t be leaving a bunch of their little messes everywhere….

    You know, dirt from the garden.

    But whatever you do, don’t let the neighbor “borrow” your tools!
