Response to My Post

In response to my post "Bride Selection (Manu's Advice)", a female reader sent her comments through email to me. Since I publish all comments, I am publishing this also. I asked her if I can publish her name. She said she simply wrote an email to me and that is all. Since her comment is kind of a retort, I am publishing her comment as a separate “post”. I like her comments and they are hilarious. Here it is:

Hi SG,
The blog was very funny. In case you're interested in a response, from a woman's perspective, read below and enjoy!

The Harmone Guide
Women will understand this!
Men should memorize this!

After marrying a girl according to guidance set by Manu, all men must carry the following handy guide, like a driver’s license, at all times. This will help them to have safe conversation with their wives. (Men who are not married yet should also carry this to help them have safe conversation with their girl friends.)

DANGEROUS: What’s for dinner?
SAFER: Can I help you with dinner?
SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some wine

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?
SAFER: You sure look good in brown
SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some wine

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?
SAFER: Could we be over reacting?
SAFEST: Here is my pay check
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some wine

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?
SAFER: You know there a lot of apples left
SAFEST: Can I get you a piece of chocolate with that?
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some wine

DANGEROUS: What did you DO all day?
SAFER: I hope you didn’t over-do it today
SAFEST: I’ve always loved you in that robe
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some wine

  9. Thanks for your comments Antarman. I am glad you loved it.

  10. I am glad you liked her comments Titaxy.

  11. Thanks for your comments MindfulMeanderer. I love that part (Here, have some wine) too.

  12. Thanks for your comments Insignia. It would be wonderful for women if every man follows it.

  13. Thanks for your comments Neha. I am glad you liked it.

  14. Thanks for your comments. The writer of that email to me will be happy to read your comments.

  15. Thanks for your comments Sandhya. Please let me know what your husband thinks after reading this. Would like to know a man's perspective also.

  16. Thanks for your comments Jaunty. I am glad this post made you happy.

  17. Thanks for your comments lostworld. The writer of that email will be happy to read your comments.

    This was a real email receied by me from a real female reader. She rarely comments on my posts. But reads every one.

  18. Thanks for your comments Al. You and your family (wife Peggy, daughter Kelly, and son Bud) are a complete dysfunctional family. And yes, Peggy married a sucker. What can she expect from a shoe salesman! However, she is no better either. Sit home all day and do nothing. Your daughter? She is an unintelligent, naive and ignorant. The only possible exception is your son Bud. And that too sometimes only. I remember your family conversations:

    Your daughter Kelly: I am like the Beatles of the 20th Century.

    Your Wife Kelly: Did you miss me?
    You: With every bullet, yes.

    You: (on another occasion) Women, Can’t live with them, can’t herd them all into Canada.

  19. Thanks for your comments Jayashree. I am glad you loved it.
