I Know What Boys Like

Boy:  Mom. do woman understand everything about boys?
Me:  Well, we do understand SOME things about boys, but not everything.  Like we don't understand why you like The Three Stooges so much.
Boy: Oh.  Well, I think the thing women really don't understand is that we just LIKE guns and fighting.
Me:  Yes, you're right, I don't understand.

I thought that was very insightful for an 8 year old with Aspergers.  I expect it was brought on by several years of his mother sighing and saying things like "you wouldn't want to kill a REAL person with that light saber right?"  to which I would receive an eye roll and a disgusted "Mommmm, light sabers aren't real you know!"  

Which really isn't all that reassuring when you think about it.

  1. Girls are just a puzzling sometimes ;-) Keep coming up with the good answers!

  2. I so hate the 3 Stooges, and I'm afraid that Audrey has a guy's sense of humor!

  3. I love it! And I don't understand the 'boys and fighting' love affair either.
