Men trivia.. :)



Men have their own weird rules for everything.
This is with reference to the two men I personally know, my papa and my husband.


If I ask questions on any of these rules, I’d be shuttling between my Dad’s house and my husband’s. So, to be safe I just nod along.






Here are some always-nod-along stuff. 

1.       Buying a dress is sheer waste of money. But spoilers and alloy wheels are essential for a living.

2.       One can eat puddings all the time, it’s no problem. But tea should be drunk without sugar to keep diabetes under control.

3.       One is advised day in and out against watching too much TV, as it gives strain to the eyes. But smoking seems to be good for health.

4.       Christmas tree is not manly, but Nivea moisturizer is.

5.       Chocolates and oily snacks cause cholesterol, but beef fried with grated coconut is good for the heart.

6.     They walk at 60 km/hr and think that others are crawling.

 7.       Men do not stay in wife’s house for more than a night –rule followed religiously by both.

8.       Reading the Bible while at church is cowardly. Turning around to see if anyone is watching him pray is not.

9.       Hitting the pillar behind and ruining the paint on the bumper while in reverse gear is because the ‘pillar settings’ are not good. When I do the same, it is because of negligence.

 10.   News about shortage of drinking water is not so serious. Cos, there is no shortage of beer yet.

11.   The helmet should not be touched as my ring and bangle might cause scratches on it. While at the mall this is not applicable.

12.   News about someone getting married is not a good news for either. Pitying and sympathizing is sure to follow.

13.   After coming back from a marriage, neither remembers the bride’s name . Both remembers the name of caterer and menu.

14.   Till date, neither can say whether I am wearing a salwar or a kurta pyjama.

15.   A patiala bottom is always looked at with sympathy.

 
16.   Buying a new mobile when there are already two unused ones at home is a necessity. If I talk to relatives on long distance calls, it invites illogical calculation on how to save money spent on STD and use it to buy a new mobile!

17.   Two minutes after entering a crowded mall, I lose sight of him. But if I am holding the camera or keys to the car, he will protectively walk behind me. :D











Well, I'd rather also put it this way.. these are also reasons why I adore them so much..!!
By the way, I turned 1 on blogosphere :-) Thought of blowing my own trumpet here :D

  3. Loved it.

    But, a dress (#1), you gals use it once in a month or once in 6 months. Whr as spoilers and alloy wheels are used every day !!! (oh..i have to order some Team BHP stickers..thanks for reminding)

    Help us understand diff b/w salwar and a kurta pyjama (serious)

  5. 1. Buying a dress is sheer waste of money. But spoilers and alloy wheels are essential for a living.

    *how true..They are essential..very very essential


    2. One can eat puddings all the time, it’s no problem. But tea should be drunk without sugar to keep diabetes under control.

    * Err...Pepsi and Coke has no sugar.


    3. One is advised day in and out against watching too much TV, as it gives strain to the eyes. But smoking seems to be good for health.

    *yes..It hides the faces from gossiping eyes


    4. Christmas tree is not manly, but Nivea moisturizer is.

    *is that not?Cant trust whats written on the label these days.


    5. Chocolates and oily snacks cause cholesterol, but beef fried with grated coconut is good for the heart.

    *Right..Coconut oil has some awesome properties.

    6. They walk at 60 km/hr and think that others are crawling.

    *sigh

    9. Hitting the pillar behind and ruining the paint on the bumper while in reverse gear is because the ‘pillar settings’ are not good. When I do the same, it is because of negligence.

    *technical knowledge always helps in solving issues



    12. News about someone getting married is not a good news for either. Pitying and sympathizing is sure to follow.

    *And a silent prayer too is good.

    14. Till date, neither can say whether I am wearing a salwar or a kurta pyjama.
    *it comes in all different names.No?

    15. A patiala bottom is always looked at with sympathy.
    *but not all bottoms.[No pun intended]

    16. Buying a new mobile when there are already two unused ones at home is a necessity. If I talk to relatives on long distance calls, it invites illogical calculation on how to save money spent on STD and use it to buy a new mobile!
    *math..Math rocks

  6. Asif: Yes..they can create a blog keeping this as the theme :D

    Praphul: Danks :-) Eclairs medichu tharame.

    Captain Haddock: We wear dress only once in 6 months...! What do we do on the other days???? OMG!!!! Oh no..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Kurta Pyjama looks something like what Kareena Kapoor wears throughout in Jab we Met.

    Sorcerer: Thanks for dropping by and letting me know that you fall into the same league as the aforesaid men of whom the post is about.
    I guess I can even generalize this...its about all men!!!

    Anonymous: Thank You.

  7. hahah iam rofl here..i agree with you as you know our better halves fall under the same catagory!!! #1 and #16 are soo god damn true!!

  8. oh.....you got it wrong. what i said was "a dress (#1), you gals use it once in a month or once in 6 months" NOT "We wear dress only once in 6 months" ha..ha...ha...anyways, nice one.

    and the other one.......ahhhh....answer to the question can not be another puzzle.

    We, men, notice the acting and the character of a female/male in movie (or in real life). I do remember Jab We Met, and Kareena's lovely acting, story etc. But not what she was wearing.

    If you could define what is Kurta Pyjama/Salwar in one simple sentence, that would be great.

  9. lol, good dose of laughter :D
    rock!! mwahh

  10. Vineeta: yes yes:)

    Captain Haddock: If I define what a kurta pyjama is to someone, that would be to the aforesaid persons whom the blog is about :-) If it makes any sense to them, I will let u know.. :D

    Moonlite: Thanks, dear.

  13. Men will be men! (was itching to say that! Sorry). Absolutely hillarious and spot on!

    I also have the men in my life spend ceaseless amount of time, energy and money buying stupid looking gadgets and then tearing them apart in the hope of rebuilding them! Its how they spend 'quality time' on weekends!

  14. Hey..i just got it clarified by my wife. We were reading ur blog y'day night. What i understodd is : Long churidaar is Salvar. And Short churidaar is kurta pyjama.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Beauty and the Beast: true to the rooots...!! And with the money they spent these gadgets, I would've bought a garment factory!

    Captain Haddock: Thts partly correct. Salwar is a set-with a top bottom and shawl of similar complementing design. Kurta Pyjama is a mix and match. Kurta will be comparitively shorter as your wife said. Kurta Pyjama usually doesn't have a shawl. while a salwar always will have one. :-) Now u have 3 differences.
