Recently when I was cleaning out the oven, I had trouble removing the shelves to clean them. I called my dearly beloved, and he, anxious to show off his manly strength, gripped them firmly, and pulled them out.

« How to Tell Him That You Love Her So MuchSimple Reasons to Dump Your Boyfriend »Every morning he loses his car keys and his mobile phone, and of course I must have moved them, but when he does find them, he can then remember that he ” Just put them there because he was in a hurry.”
After my disaster with the oven shelf, we went out one day, and we were in a very pretty public garden, so he wanted to get a photo of the flowers. He stood on a platform, using my camera, and then to my absolute horror, he didn’t see there was no rail on one side,so he tripped straight into a puddle, breaking my camera in the process.
Luckily he wasn’t hurt, and we had a good laugh about it. He has also promised to get me a new camera for Christmas. but I still couldn’t help thinking, if I had broken his camera, he would have told me off for being careless, because he is always so careful!
I love my man to bits, and I wouldn’t change a thing about him, but I still think that men are on a different planet, because there is no excuse for our failings and mistakes, but plenty of excuse for theirs.
