While we were driving down the street, my wife, who is given to asking random questions out of the blue, asked, "What would come in a two or three gallon bucket?". Apparently she was looking for a handy bucket to mix fruit drink for events at church. Not realizing the context, my guess of "an elephant" was deemed inappropriate.

Funny and understandable. Some women start a conversation in the middle, then seem upset that you have no idea what they are talking about.

Mine is famous for mumbling some mumbo jumbo BS, then saying "sorry, I was just thinking out loud". Based on what comes out, I'm guessing what stays in is quite intellectual....

I'm surrounded by 3 such females right now. 15 year old daughter, my wife and MIL. They'll blurt chit out like they're trying to guess the answer at charades. Makes no sense 70% of the time.

Yes, been there, confused by all of it. Talks a lot to herself, gets pissed if she actually said something to you and you were in tune out mode.

I once saw an elephant ejaculate in a circus ring slinging goo all over the bottom rows.

Don't know if it was 3 gallons worth.

Yep. My g/f of ten+ years blurts out sh1t like that all the time and then gets upset when I say "I'd like to buy a context clue, please."
She goes with the, "if you knew me, you would now what I am thinking" response.

It's one of the main reasons that after 10 years she's still just my "girlfriend".

The nature of the “beast”. 😁

On occasion when that happens I’ll have to say, “whoa, wait a minute. What are we discussing?”

How ‘bout changing the subject in the middle of a sentence? A couple of years ago we were driving down the interstate and she said something like, “Oh man, that’s an ugly color for a car have you seen neighbors’ new dog?” 😳😁

Don’t know what I’d do without her though. 😊

Road hummers tend to mitigate the talking.

Three of my dad's favorites:

Slight misunderstanding: She wants a big church wedding and he doesn't want one at all.

"She broke up with me - she said I didn't listen or something like that."

"I'm uncouth? I take you to fine restaurants and the opera - what the f*ck is this uncouth sh*t?"


Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.

A great philosopher once said that the universal correct answer to a woman in any situation is "I Understand".

After 50 years of marriage I finally leaned the truth of that.

Ignoring the questions don’t make them go away either.

That’s the worst thing you can possibly do.

"WTF are you talking about?" comes out of me often. The stream of consciousness thing is strong with my wife.
