Anti-Typical Male

Cars, sports, pain... not really my thing.

But I do like drying flowers, writing poetry, and talking.

And that's why I've long said that I'm rather "anti-typical male."

So it amused me that many of today's Other Posts of Note have to do with very "boy" things; things like funny Google searches and dead rodents. And while I find the very "boyish" nature of the posts funny, I can't exactly relate on a personal level.

I'm not saying that there aren't gender differences. There are. It's just that some things don't quite apply to every boy or girl within the stereotypes.

Speaking of "guy things," my dad has started a series that I'm following with much interest.

I think you might find his posts interesting as well.

As the wife of an anti-typical male, and the mother of at least one such creature, I can relate. My husband is far more at home reading and writing than he is when changing the oil in a car. And you know what? I like him that way. :-)

I had no idea I was such an extreme liberal Christian until I read your dad's um... "links."

Luke said...

Mary Grace, glad to hear it <smile>.

Carolyn, yes. <nods>

Mrs. C, oh, you're very, very liberal <laughing>.

You are very similar to my wonderful husband. I'm glad Jamie is the way he is because it drives me insane when my BIL is around and all he wants to do is watch sports.

Luke said...

Heather, my mom likes to watch sports more than I do <laughing>. Good times.
