Years ago Mr. P. M. was reading an article about women and how we are not as straight forward in asking for what we want as men are. In the article it used this example:
While driving with her husband, the wife wanted to stop at the road side ice cream stand but instead of telling her husband to stop there for her she said to him, "If you want to stop for an ice cream that would be okay."
For some reason this stuck with us and when one of us makes a statement like this, (usually me, so perhaps the article is correct), Mr. P. M. will ask, "Is this is an ice cream question?" But I do notice more times than not it tends to factor ice cream or frozen yogurt into the equation.
Maybe as women when we are feeling guilty for something we really want and know we shouldn't necessarily indulge in we seek out support but manipulate the outcome making someone else seem responsible for the decision.
Hmmm. Deep thoughts.
I'll have to ponder this over a double scoop of rocky road.
Have a delicious weekend!
