Five Phrases You’ll Never Hear from a Guy

I’ve been gathering these for a while, and I now have a small collection.
I think you’ll agree – and I hope you’ll enjoy:

#5: “I need chocolate.”
(courtesy of Ms. Everywoman)

The quintessential female phrase. It always makes me wonder what women did before this divine delectable was discovered . . .

#4: “I may have to do one wall in turquoise.”
(courtesy of my wife)

I’m still trying to figure out how to respond to this one.

#3: “Now, you TELL me I didn’t need these!”
(courtesy of my wife)

I suppose you might hear this from a guy – but not for these:

#2: “I challenged myself to incorporate more yellow into my life.”
(courtesy of Teresa at Maggie Grace Creates)

I think this one pretty much speaks for itself.

And finally:

#1: “When I woke up, I knew it was one of those days when I just had to wear cotton.”
(courtesy of our dear friend Denise Michel)

This is the one that started it all. When I heard it, I knew it was one of those days when I just had to start writing these down.

Thank you, ladies! Just when we start to think we’ve got you figured out . . . never mind.
Have a great day!


  1. Hi Bill what a fun post. There is not a Snowflakes chance in Hell of you ever and I mean ever 'figuring' us girls out.LOL

  2. Hahaha, you've cracked me up! And given some inspiration: 5 sentences you'll never hear from a girl:

    1. Ok we'll go to Ikea, but we are going straight to the 'whatever we need' and then immediately leave the building.

    2. Oh no not another shoe store...I thought you would have enough shoes by now.

    3. uhhuh....(pauze) uhhuh...(pauze) sorry what were you saying, I wasn't listening....

    4. Well, what do you suggest? (as an answer to almost any question from 'what shall we eat tonight til what will I wear to that occasion..."?

    5. No, no I'll handle the barbeque!

    Thanks for making me laugh!! LiLi

  3. What fun!! These are something you should keep collecting.


  4. Men and women, foever destined to not understand each other!

  5. I love this! Funny and true!

  6. How funny - thanks for featuring me - keep collecting there needs to me more of this fun.

  7. I hope you make this into a book... way too HILARIOUS!!!



  8. Bill,
    I'm afraid this is just the tip of the iceberg :>)
    Warm wishes Angela

  9. Hi Bill!
    Very funny! I will be stopping by often for more of these quotes!


  10. OMG- you are so funny! Great insight into the female mind!

  11. Hi Bill...
    Thanks for the visit and comment. Those vintage ads are one of my passions and I am often tucking them into my posts here 'n there. I find everything about them to be rather facinating. Stop by anytime... my door remains open...


  12. Hilarious... always keep 'em guessing! Congrats on anniversary... I come to your site via your lovley wife!

  13. LOL - thanks for the laugh, made my morning! Thanks!

  14. If men and women understood each other completely, they would loose interest because they would know everything !
    Thanks for sharing very funny !

  15. Haha! You are brill! Love the blog!

  16. Very funny! Thanks for the laugh...

    Many blessings...

  17. Such a funny post! I constantly find myself saying stuff like that, and my husband always has fun with me over it. Colors are probably the thing we have the hardest time with, and I can see I'm not alone, as evidenced in all these examples! I think colors just mean more to women for some reason. The other day, I was talking about the important differences between taupe and mauve, and my husband just smiled! Sometimes he pretends to be terribly interested, but I think he's mostly amused! (Sort of like when he's talking about soccer strategy or systems analysis!).

  18. These are so funny ~ and soooo true, lol! Thanks for the giggles today. Yep, I'm a girl ~ don't think a guy giggles, does he?
