We are women, hear us roar! Or suffer the consequences.
I heard a strange, high-pitched screaming coming from Henry’s room and rushed in to see what was going on.
I should’ve known.
Serge got poop on his finger again. Just a smear but, well, you would’ve thought he lost an appendage.
He’s a tough guy, my husband. Makes his own furniture out of barn wood, can tile floor like a pro and apparently has no problem gutting a deer as a couple rather horrific, 25-year-old photos at his mom’s house graphically showcase…But a little poop smeared on the same hand that reached inside hot deer guts and OH MA SWEET JESUS, all bets are off.
Me? I get a little poop on my finger during a diaper change and, by god, I’ll go make myself a nice sandwich after I’m done. Poop schmoop.
Our varied reactions to poop got me thinking about all the ways in which women are tougher than dudes. Now listen, before you get all huffy please know that the following apply to my own marriage and are not really meant to be generalizations on all of manhood.

Flu? Who Me? Nah
Sick men are worse than sick toddlers. It's a bold statement, to be sure, but the thing about sick dudes is that you pretty much have to suffer every symptom with them, they'll make sure of that. "My throat huuurts. My nose is so stuffy. Can you bring me some soup? Not that
kind, the kind with the little dumplings..." Not only that but when guys feel a little tickle in their throat they're down for the count. Me? I got the flu I'm still dropping off kids at school, doing laundry, making dinner. Don't believe me? A study shows
men are way more likely to call in when sick than women. "Male workers are more likely to call in sick with "the flu," while women tend to go to work and carry about their business when they feel an illness coming on." Yup. Dudes get the sniffles and call it the flu, women get the flu and power through it without complaint.
