Are you as confounded as I am about how the mind of the opposite sex works? I suspect I’ve spent way too much time trying to figure this out. Usually it’s like trying to prove something doesn’t exist; it just doesn’t work.
Still, as with all of Nature’s mysteries, investments of a little awareness, curiosity and faith often are rewarded in small, yet significant, ways.
...it can go one of two ways. We’re left either in awe (perhaps a better term would be utter frustration) or in stitches.
If we’re lucky, we might come to understand and appreciate our partners better. If not, it can go one of two ways. We’re left either in awe (perhaps a better term would be utter frustration) or in stitches.

OFF THE TOP OF MY HEADComedian Mark Gungor has a brilliant act in which he sheds some very helpful—and hilarious— light on the differences between male and female brains.
On each side of the stage, about twenty feet apart, stand two pedestals. Atop each is a sculpted head, one of a woman, the other of a man. He walks over to the male bust and removes the top of the skull.
In a man’s brain, he continues, everything—work, money, house, kids, sex—gets put into a different box. The guy can take a thought or emotion out of one compartment and move it to another if necessary, but it can only be in one box at a time.
What’s more, he says, men have no trouble at all shifting their focus from one box to another. They can even choose not to deal with any of the boxes at all. In other words they can, at times, think about absolutely nothing.
Every thought, every emotion, is connected to everything else. And it can never be turned off!
Now Gungor walks across the stage to the woman’s head. He begins explaining why women have trouble with men’s compartments, illustrating this by acting out a typical Mars-versus-Venus marital spat. Just as Venus is throwing up her hands in utter frustration, Gungor lifts off the top of the head.
The audience roars.
Inside, filling the entire cranium, is a tangled mass of copper wire—one continuous strand, he points out. Every thought, every emotion, is connected to everything else. And it can never be turned off!
