The 5 Toughest Questions Women Ask - And Their Answers

The five questions are:
1 - "What are you thinking?"
2 - "Do you love me?"
3 - "Do I look fat?"
4 - "Do you think she is prettier than me?"
5 - "What would you do if I died?"

What makes these questions so bad is that every one is guaranteed to explode into a major argument and/or divorce if the man does not answer properly, which is to say dishonestly.

For example:

1 - "What are you thinking?" The proper answer to this question, of course, is, I'm sorry if I've been pensive, dear. I was just reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, caring, thoughtful, intelligent, beautiful woman you are and what a lucky guy I am to have met you."

Obviously, this statement bears no resemblance whatsoever to what the guy was really thinking at the time, which was most likely one of five things:
a - Baseball
b - Football
c - How fat you are.
d - How much prettier she is than you.
e - How he would spend the insurance money if you died.

According to the Sassy article, the best answer to this stupid question came from Al Bundy, of Married With Children, who was asked it by his wife, Peg. "If I wanted you to know," Al said, "I'd be talking instead of thinking."

The other questions also have only one right answer but many wrong answers:

2 - "Do you love me?" The correct answer to this question is, "Yes." For those guys who feel the need to be more elaborate, you may answer, "Yes, dear.

Wrong answers include:
a - I suppose so.
b - Would it make you feel better if I said yes.
c - That depends on what you mean by "love".
d - Does it matter?
e - I was thinking of how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

3 - "Do I look fat?" The correct male response to this question is to confidently and emphatically state, "No, of course not" and then quickly leave the room.

Wrong answers include:

a - I wouldn't call you fat, but I wouldn't call you thin either.
b - Compared to what?
c - A little extra weight looks good on you.
d - I've seen fatter.
e - Could you repeat the question? I was thinking about your insurance policy.

4 - "Do you think she's prettier than me?" The "she" in the question could be an ex-girlfriend, a passer-by you were starring at so hard that you almost cause a traffic accident or an actress in a movie you just saw. In any case, the correct response is, "No, you are much prettier."

Wrong answers include:
a - Not prettier, just pretty in a different way.
b - I don't know how one goes about rating such things.
c - Yes, but I bet you have a better personality.
d - Only in the sense that she's younger and thinner.
e - I sorry what did you say, I was thinking of how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

5 - "What would you do if I died?" Correct answer: "Dearest love, in the event of your untimely demise, life would cease to have meaning for me and I would perforce hurl myself under the front tires of the first Domino's Pizza truck that came my way." This might be the stupidest question of the lot, as is illustrated by the following stupid joke:

"Dear," said the wife. "What would you do if I died?"
"Why, dear, I would be extremely upset," said the husband. "Why do you ask such a question?"

"Would you remarry?" persevered the wife. "No, of course not, dear" said the husband.

"Don't you like being married?" said the wife. "Of course I do, dear" he said.

"Then why wouldn't you remarry?" "Alright," said the husband, "I'd remarry."

"You would?" said the wife, looking vaguely hurt. "Yes" said the husband.

"Would you sleep with her in our bed?" said the wife after a long pause.

"Well yes, I suppose I would." replied the husband.

"I see," said the wife indignantly." And would you let her wear my old clothes?"

"I suppose, if she wanted to" said the husband.

"Really," said the wife icily. "And would you take down the pictures of me and replace them with pictures of her?"

"Yes. I think that would be the correct thing to do."

"Is that so?" said the wife, leaping to her feet. "And I suppose you'd let her play with my golf clubs, too."

"Of course not, dear," said the husband. "She's left-handed."

Light Up My Life

Lighting breaks or makes a house interior if your house if beautifully lit with gorgeous lamps and light fixtures your house will look lovely but if there's not enough lighting and the light fixtures are boring, the house will look dull.

I saw this beautiful table lamp in one of those collections of table lamps they have here at and I fell in-love with it immediately. It's simple but it's gorgeous and can actually be an accent light in the room and it's just $60.

There are other beautifully crafted lamps and lamp shades from floor lamps to desk lamps available in there and price starts at $60 to as high as your budget can afford. Their website is quite cool with easy search options, you should check them out. I want this lamp!


What can you say about this?

'People will forget what you said,
People will forget what you did...
But people will never forget how you made them feel'.

Personally, I think there's some truth in it.

Acknowledge Your Blessings

"I dreamed I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section.' Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are Received.'

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.' Here, the graces and
blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them. I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' My angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.> 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.

'So sad,' the angel sighed.'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .''How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I

'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank You, Lord.'

I asked,'What Blessings should they acknowledge?' 'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'

'Also..... If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 700 million people in the world. If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you are envied by and more blessed than three billion people in the world.'

'If your parents are still alive and still married...You are very rare ... 'If you can hold your head up and smile, You are not the norm, You're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'

'Ok, now what?' 'How can I start?'

If you can read this, then you just received a double blessing, Someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

Ash Wednesday And Catholic Practice Of Faith

Thanks to the taxi driver I was riding earlier for reminding me that today is Ash Wednesday. Thanks to him I was able to attend mass to pay homage to Our Savior an be proud of my faith by wearing the sign of the cross on my forehead. Ash Wednesday is a very significant day in Catholic practice as this day is the beginning of Lent, the time of Jesus Christ big sacrifices for the salvation of the sins of the world.

I know that other religions or sect smirk at Catholic and their practices as they think we Catholics are hypocrites and practice our faith very seasonal. We don't preach as hard as the others because we believe in the freewill of men and that we believe that our faith in God, repentance from sins and praying sincerely will save our souls. I believe that God does not favor a single sect or religion but an individuals way of life.

Some will not agree with me and would call my attention to discuss this with me to insist on what they believe but I think people in the Catholic Chat City will understand me on this one and would agree that that religion is something people should not argue about especially those who practice different faith because that will cause a great clash of practices and beliefs.

It Depends On Whose Hands It's In

A basketball in my hands is worth about $19.
A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands is worth about $33 million.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6.
A baseball in Roger Clemens' hands is worth $4.75 million.
It depends on whose hands it's in.

A tennis racket is useless in my hands.
A tennis racket in Andre Agassi's hands is worth millions.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A rod in my hands will keep away an angry dog.
A rod in Moses' hands will part the mighty sea.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A slingshot in my hands is a kid's toy.
A slingshot in David's hand is a mighty weapon.
It depends whose hands it's in.

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in Jesus' hands will feed thousands.
It depends whose hands it's in.

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Jesus Christ's hands will
produce salvation for the entire world.
It depends whose hands it's in.

As you see now, it depends whose hands it's in.
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families and your relationships in God's hands because...
It depends whose hands it's in....

Married And Chatting

I have no idea why someone who is married would go to Married Chat Rooms unless probably met his or her other half on that chat room and have tons of friends in there.

Anyway, somebody told me that probably some married couples feel the need to have some support group from outside their relatives and circle of friends. That some strangers, who are married like them, that eventually will become friends after constant communication via chat. have something different to offer them when it comes to their opinion about the married life and relationship and anything that surrounds and involves being married. A support group outside the people they know in person who will be less judging and critical. If that is the case then go ahead and join chat.

Ahhhhhhhh...but still, my head is racing and is taking me to different heights, check their site and decide if you would like to join this chat room if you are married. It's free to join anyway and a nice place to meet thousands of people from different parts of the world. That sounds fun.

But this is what I foresee:

Imagine you and your hubby or wife in the same room facing your own PCs. Private message each other and then hubby ask "Honey, what's for dinner?"

"Uhmmm... I don't know, I haven't cooked yet. I'm blogging and you are chatting right?"

"Forget dinner! Wanna roll that chair back and meet me in the middle of the room for 10 minutes?"

Don't Restrict Yourself From Your Comfort Zone

You already know that you will not fully enjoy a swing unless you raise your feet from the ground. That you will not fully enjoy a boat ride unless you remove the ropes knot from the riverbank.

What am I trying to say? Never ever limit yourself when it comes to your happiness. Learn to let go and take some risk. Life is much beautiful if you learn how to embrace what's outside your comfort zone.

Be A Pencil

I would like to share this beautiful allegory with you:

A pencilmaker told the pencils five important lessons:

First, everything you do will always leave a mark.
Second, you can always correct the mistakes you make.
Third, what's important is what's inside you.
Fourth, in life you will undergo painful sharpenings which will make you a better pencil.
Fifth, the most important is, to be the best pencil you can be you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you!

A Date To Remember

After my dad died I had regrets because I wasn't able to tell him I love him while he was still alive. That I am sorry for growing up scared of him and how I wish we were close to each other.

The things I knew about him now I never knew before, although it was a relief knowing all those things, our relationship would have been better if I knew about them when he was still alive.

I got to take care of him in a very short span on time. He doesn't want to be take care of. His last few days was the saddest days for him and I feel sorry and deeply sad about it. I wasn't close when he died. I felt short in showing him how much I love him and that I miss him terribly.

Please read on and think about your relationship with your elders:

"After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said I love you but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you."

"The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my mother, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally."

"That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie."

"What's wrong, are you well," she asked? My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news."

"I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you," I responded. "Just the two of us."

"She thought about it for a moment, and then said, "I would like that very much."

"That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel's."

"I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed, "she said, as she got into the car. "They can't wait to hear about our meeting". We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips."

"It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small," she said."

"Then it's time that you relax and let me return the favor," I responded."

"During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation - nothing extraordinary, but catching up on recent events of each other's life. We talked so much that we missed the movie."

"As we arrived at her house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite
you." I agreed."

"How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home. "Very nice. Much more so than I could have imagined," I answered."

"A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I didn't have a chance to do anything for her."

"Some time later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same place mother and I had dined."

"An attached note said: "I paid this bill in advance. I wasn't sure that I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid for two plates - one for you and the other for your wife. You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son."

"At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: "I LOVE YOU!" and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more important than God and your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these things cannot be put off till "some other time."

Never Hide Your Happiness

"Smile... it makes a world of difference."
"Dance... who knows when you won't be able to."
"Cry... holding those emotions is bad for you."
"Kiss... kisses are the most wonderful things shared in the world."
"Laugh... what's the point in hiding happiness?"
"Frown... why not let him know your unhappy?"
"Apologize... you don't want to lose friends."
"Hug... there is no better feeling than being wrapped up close to someone you love."
"Live... because life is everything."

Got that? Good! Now do it!

Saying The Truth Pays Good

Telling the truth does wonders and because of my confession I am an inch away to snag an awesome authentic limited edition Gucci bag! Wohooo!
I joined this Nuffnang contest and post about My Shopaholic Confession and I was chosen as one of the 20 bloggers for a chance to win an authentic Gucci bag. Of course all of us 20 are already winners since everyone will get a nifty surprise prize from them. I am already excited about the awarding ceremony tomorrow night and a movie date with my fellow shopaholics and watch Isla Fishers Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Part Of Your Life

"If someone want to be a part of your life, they will make an effort to be in it. So don't bother reserving a space in your heart for someone who doesn't want to stay!"

Make sense right? So don't worry be happy and enjoy each day and take life lightly for tomorrow will never come only today. Have a blessed Sunday!

Happy V-day

"Destiny belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams and have the courage to pursue them. Don't stop when you are tired. Stop when you are done."

That's why there was a saying quitters never win because they give up easily when an obstacle comes their way. Not knowing that the obstacle will be a way to strengthen them more and is a step closer to what they are aspiring for. Occasionally we stumble but the ability to rise again is important. Believe in your dreams and it will all materialize.

Happy V-day!

I Got A V-day Date!

Two more days and it's hearts day. The great V-day. Have you got a date already? I have. No, not that kind of date, a single-mom's type of date.

See my classmate from high school invited to his daughters 1st birthday party and baptismal on February 14, Saturday. What a neat date for a birthday and for a baptismal. Very sweet!

Well, at least I got a date and I don't have to sulk inside my room and blog all day because I am dateless. Sigh.

Lord, Be My Strength

"Lord, be my strength, be my heart, be my foundation for the day. Let your spirit guide me, because with you, I shall never stray. Amen!"

This was a prayer my friend Maggie sent to me this morning and it made me smile immediately. Having someone think of you everyday to send such a beautiful prayer is very heart warming. Having read this from my phone, she already made me pray. Isn't text messaging great? We connect with friends and strengthen our faith as well as every inspiring message connects us back with God and give us the opportunity to pray despite our hectic days. I hope you prayed with me. Have a blessed day everyone!

Celebrity In Their Own Right

You may not know them, but for us who are parents of a child with autism, they are celebrities in their own right and serves as a great inspiration for us.

Enzo, 17 y.o. is now studying at La Salle and is very intelligent and highly articulate person. When he was 3 years old he was diagnosed with learning disabilities and autism. He was non-verbal and not communicating at all. But because of his moms perserverance, learning about autism and teaching her child like any ordinary mom would do to their child, Enzo's brain opened up and now you can't even tell he was different.

Gabby is now 43 and was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when he was already 41. He and his family thought there was something different with him, but because he wasn't treated as unequal as anyone else, he was able to study at a university although he didn't graduate and was able to work for a publishing company for 13 years. He was able to function like any "normal" person can and was productive.

Asperger syndrome is still in the autism spectrum disorder
but they are the higher functioning ones and was even said to be the highly gifted children, genius as they call it. At the discovery of asperger in 1994 they now think Einstein, Da Vinci and Mozart
are among those who have it.
