Dh & I were at a local mall yesterday, and there were signs in the parking garage, reminding drivers to lock their cars, check the back seat, etc.
"They have to remind you not to forget your kid in the back seat??" dh remarked.
"Well, it could be that," I acknowledged (we've all heard the tragic stories of babies & toddlers accidentally left strapped in car seats in cars on hot summer days...), but then I added, "but it could also be a reminder to, you know, check when you return to make sure nobody is hiding out there, waiting for you."
HE HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS. Like, it had never occurred to him. EVER.
I said, "Seriously??!"
I think every woman old enough to drive has had this drummed into her head ad nauseum, don't you?
It just drove home to me (certainly not for the first time) how men and women live in completely different realities sometimes...
(I don't suppose he's ever walked through a dark street with his keys interlaced between his fingers either...?)
Have you ever had any moments like this, when you realized what different realities men & women sometimes inhabit?
