T.O.W.S. and the men who love them - a post for women ONLY!

perhaps i was in a mood today.

while i was happily stoking the fire in the woodstove today, probably yapping it up about some world event - i turned around suddenly to see my dear, sweet husband pointing the remote, which btw he has no idea how to use, directly at me.

"why are you pointing that remote control at me?" to which he politely responded, "i was just trying to turn you on." hmmmmmm...i didn't know they made arcees or batteries that powerful! i let it go, because this is the man G-d put on my plate and i didn't want to have the entawr meal at once.

to make matters stranger, a couple of hours later our daughter was in a snit (yes, elbro - a snit) over what to wear to a birthday party this afternoon and whether her brother should go or not.

the 15 year old brother says, "what is it with you women?"

the father says, "son, what have i told you?"

"pop (only it sounded more like PAAAAAA-OPPPPPPPPP) - women all have tows." pop inquired, "what's tows, son?" son replies loudly, "TICKED OFF WOMEN SYNDROME!"

anyway, that started my gears turning...T.O.W.S. it's got to mean more than that - this is where i turn it over to my female colleagues.

and btw, this post is made prior to warren's gun post so we would have something to make a fuss over. what does T.O.W.S mean to you?

As I said before there are only two theories when it comes to women....and neither one of them work.

It's called "Random Hostility Syndrome"...

somehow, i just knew our elbro would weigh in on a "women only" post - don't ask me how i knew - it would only confuse matters. let's just say "he's in touch with OUR female side!"

that's one of the best things about him - tostesterone aside. honestly, i believe he may be my schweetie's twin separated at birth.

hey kell!

I was adopted so it's possible. The she-wolf got crotchety though and I had to trade her in.

nanc said...

there's no thing wrong with crotchety!

nanc said...

elbro? you're supposed to be awaiting the gun post!

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc said...

T.O.W.S. to me means; Totally Off the Wall, So?
And deal with it, buster! You got a problem with it?
And, don't ask!
EB- Your married years have taught you something! Congrats!
My late was the one who usually got mad, but, when I was upset, even he listened. I wonder why?
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

At my house, we ladies don't have T.O.W.S. But we do see the following, which seems to appear around age 50:

P-issy

M-ale

S-yndrome

Must be some hormonal thing which men go through. My husband used to be the most laid-back guy in the world. I couldn't make him angry! But now, he's in a snit every time the least little thing goes wrong. So his P.M.S. leads to my

T-weaked

O-ff

W-oman's

S-yndrome

I don't suffer from T.O.W.S. much any more. I'm on neuro meds. LOL.

nanc said...

so that's what i have to look forward to in eight years with nancpop? he's going to become angry? wonder why he'd do that? ::scratching head::

his dad seems jovial enough and is in his sixties...

Robert Bayn said...

tows post and a hand gun post, am i the only not seen how these might interact?

haha!

Brooke said...

I like that: Random hostility syndrome!

I think that girl babies are born with PMS and it simply intensifies as they reach the teens!

Men have it, too...

TOWS = Too Often Without Sex

nanc said...

rob - it was completely by coincidence these posts came together - perhaps warren is sending my subliminal messages?

brooke - having been a female for a little over 50 years now, i can and will attest to that. what i want to know is WHEN DOES IT END?!?

beamish - T.oo O.rdinary W.ith S.kills

nanc said...

oops! "...sending ME subliminal..." not "my"

T.O.W.S.

The Ornery Woman Speaks! I like it...

Pointing the remote at you, huh? you mean you let him HOLD the remote!?

nanc said...

only because he doesn't really know what it's for! lmao! he points the phone at the television expecting the channels to change!

zin - life is good when the man of the house has no idea what the remote control does. i just imagine what he'd do with something as complicated as the vacuum cleaner!

i shouldn't be so hard on him - we're always warm, fed, dry and everybody goes to bed with a snicker on their face thanks to him. G-d knew what he was doing when He made nancpop!

Elmer's Brother said...

he should point the remote at YOU and hit the MUTE button

Elmer's Brother said...

BTW you're all proving my first comment on this post correct

nanc said...

hehehe!

think i'll go to warren's post and talk about firearms...or not.

nanc said...

elbro? you weren't lying on the floor face down, slamming your fists on the floor right before and directly after you made your last two posts, were you?

Farmer John said...

TOWS means always having to say I'm sorry... and never really meaning it?

nanc said...

nooooooooooooooooo.

Elmer's Brother said...

no I was lying in bed while my wife brought me whatever I wanted when I wanted it....nanananana

Discrimination, pure and simple.

Just wait until the ACLU hears about this!

I will comment where I please (as long as EB goes first).

Dangit I was paying attention to my wife instead of proofreading what I wrote.

TOWS means pretending like you're paying attention to your wife during a sporting event

TOWS means nodding your head and repeating the ever reliable retort "Yes Dear"

Me cynical? Yes Dear....coming

nanc said...

well, i do believe T.O.W.S. applies more to men than women - perhaps i should change it to T.O.M.S.?

which reminds me of a story.

Farmer John said...

...I think AoW already posted her Tomcat story. Too late!

Farmer John said...

TOWS=Nancy Pelosi???

nanc said...

all i can say to that, farmer, is:

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!
