The most virile, robust, brawny man can be instantly reduced to a quaking, quivering puddle of ‘uh-oh’ when he hears the infamous, “We need to talk.”
Men hear “We need to talk ” and instantly break out in panic and alarm. Peter in Milpitas said, “Everyman knows those four words are code for “You are in big trouble, buddy”
There are no visions of sugarplums dancing in guy’s heads.
It’s more like visions of: The Breaking-up Talk; “Weapons of Mass Discussion” and the inevitable “The Top 10 things you did wrong, dude”.
Men have said that hearing “The Four Words” is far more intimidating than hearing these four ~
- · Pull the vehicle over
- · Your grades came today
- · Your boss is calling
- · Test results are here
- · We’re going Christmas shopping
- · The kids found your_____
So, ladies: use these Four Words with caution and discretion. All the great lovers in history had issues and peace talks.
Think of Bonnie and Clyde, Ozzie and Harriet, Bill and Hillary, Homer and Marge. Be judicious.
Tis the season to be jolly and… talk amongst yourselves.
