So, today’s piece was a toss up between the X Chromosome and the Xiphoid Process (the cartilage at the bottom middle of your rib cage. I was actually leaning toward the xiphoid process to begin with… but after some thought, which produced nothing but a blank screen, I decided the X Chromosome would be better. Choosing this also makes tomorrow’s piece come very naturally. Can you guess what it is? I can’t do an X without its counterpart!
So most of us know that two X’s make those of us who are female, female. So what else makes us female? I don’t ask this in an anatomical way. I mean, what else about us is distinctly woman? I’m thinking about this, I think, because last night my husband told me to leave the house and go do whatever I wanted to do. (AWESOME!!) Did I choose something he would have chosen to do? Nope. I went browsing. Not even shopping really. Just browsing! Though I did buy a few small things. I just had the TIME to walk from store to store. Normally I have 2 kids on my hips and have to run in and out as fast as I possibly can. I glance at the pretty things, but nary get a chance to stop and study them! There’s no time for browsing in my life anymore. So I just went through a few stores looking at all the beautiful things, and actually making a mental list of gift ideas for friends and family. It was SO nice to know I didn’t need to be back at a certain time. As long as the stores were open, I could be there too. Then on my way home, I pulled into a Starbucks drive-through, ordered a low-fat iced caramel macchiato, and because I had a gift card and was enjoying a rare me-night, I also decided to try one of their new cake-pops (I almost never buy food there). It was super sweet, but with each bite, I liked it more. I might even order another one next time.
That being said, what man would choose to do that with their evening? Well… I’m sure plenty of men. They might choose different stores to browse (Cabellas, perhaps?). And, in fact, I know plenty of women who would NOT choose to go “browsing” with their time too! But either way, it made me feel girlie. And I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you to my rock star husband! Love you babe!
What girlie things do you like to do, women? (Men, you can answer for your wives/daughters/sisters)?
luv ya mi ladies!
