Recently I have been encouraging my husband to get a hobby. I seem to be out all the time doing something or other, whether it be bootcamp, scrapbooking, visiting, attending meetings of organizations for which I am a member, etc.
So, anyway, I've been encouraging Chris to get out and do something for himself. He took this to mean that he should get a dirt bike.
By doing something for himself, I had in mind maybe joining a men's league sports team or something like that. He thought I meant get a dirt bike.
This weekend he will be like a kid again as he takes his new dirt bike for a spin.
This, my friends, is why you should never assume that what you say and what men hear are even remotely close to the same thing!
