Boys will be boys...

But girls grow up!


I can't help but complain! I know I shouldn't, but apparently, I'm not the only one!

I got sick over my birthday and infected Jason as well (my mum said not to kiss him, but would I listen? Oh no!!! At least I've learnt my lesson). And so, both of us were sick for my birthday.

Anyway, what I was going to say was that while I was sick, I still did house chores (e.g. laundry, wash the dishes etc). Jason, on the other hand, stayed well away from water or any sort of housework (didn't help one bit that his mom shoo'ed him away from the kitchen!). He didn't even offer to help, he just complained about being sick, plonked his backside onto the couch and watched Futurama.

And so, I went to work to whinge about him being like that and lo behold, all my other work colleagues say the same things about their male partners! The main consensus is that they're big SOOKS (I think that's how its spelt).

Whenever the boys are sick, they turn into big complaining babies who do nothing but say how sick they are (we believe that they really should win an Oscar for their performances). A headache becomes a brain tumour, the sniffles develop into pneumonia and they might as well be coughing their lungs out! The whine and complain and basically want to be mothered. They don't bother to take any medication unless directed (or shoved down their throats) and just lie down and vegitate.

Why? Why on earth would anyone be like that? Is it just a boy thing? Is it just some ruse to get some attention? Or do boys really want to be comforted like a littl' kid? Granted, not all boys are like that (some boys do grow up into men)...but the majority seem to be happy with the way things are.
Am I right boys?

Women have a higher threshold for pain. Us guys just vegetate when we're sick.

izchan said...

You mean watching Futurama is not housework?

pugly said...

NinJaMoo said...

None of you boys are even standing up for yourselves! ;p Pugly, we need to have a girl's nite out!

Izso: Danny/Johny have both my bday and Aussie mob no.

What is there to stand up for? I mean ... I DO 90% THE HOUSEWORK ANYWAY ... getting sick and resting is not something that I will apologize for.

NinJaMoo said...

Izchan: Not saying anything about apologizing. I'm just trying to understand why it happens! Kudos to you for doing 90% of the housework...I hope your wife appreciates you for all your sacrifices.

ninjamoo: i guess why none of us is standing up for ourselves is because i think none of us here are like that!

I really need to see this jason guy ... I think he married the perfect spouse.

pugly said...

NinjaMoo, jom! Let's have a night out & leave all these boys to get on with the chores for once!

izso said...

pugly - we'd probably get all the guys over for a night of XBOX or PSP2!

NinJaMoo said...

Guys: I'm not saying that he's not OK (he'd have to be more than OK to live with someone crazy like me! ;p)

Izchan: I'm not perfect...and neither is he. That's why we're perfect for each other.

Pugly: Lets...then we can leave the boys to do whatever makes them happy and do what we girls do best! Besides...it gives me a chance to miss him and vice versa! *sounds so corny, kan?* ;)

Yeap ... people watch out of the person in love in a ninja suit. I believe its infectious and might contain bacteriums that will cause a rash in your nether region.

This is a friendly message from your Neighbourhood Rukun Tetanga.
