This Battle of the Brains? I WIN!!

I will generally and honestly tell you that my husband is smarter than me.

But there are so many different kinds of smart.

I’m more street-savvy smart.

Peter’s more intellectually-book smart.

I’m smart…in a make-things-happen-by-sheer-force-of-my-will-sort-of-way.

Peter’s smart…in a look-at-things-and-just-understand-how-they-work-sort-of-way.

I’m smart…in a if-it-goes-right-get-people-to-think-it-was-my-idea-all-along-kind-of-way.

Peter’s smart…in a if-it-goes-wrong-get-people-to-think-it-is-their-fault-kind-of-way.



I am smart….in a DO-NOT-turn-on-the-AC-fan-in-my-office-when-there’s-been-a-dead-rat-stuck-in-the-ceiling-recently-sort-of-way.

Peter….yeah. Sadly, not so much.



Care for some free ice cream?  I’m giving away some Haagen-Dazs over at the Mayhew Review.

    Hee! I have a book-smart husband, too–but he thought that the tights went on the _outside_ of the leotard for our daughter’s ballet class! 🙂

    I told my crazy book smart husband one morning that I was making coffee cake. He got all cranky and bent out of shape and said, “Fine! But, I am almost out of coffee, please don’t use it all.”

    Your smarts and mine and definitely the ones I want stranded on the dessert isle, but I want their smarts back on land, in a control room, figuring out how to make sure I don’t have to be all Gilligan’s Island for forever!

    I got nothing on the brain debate (well, actually I do, but that is a post in itself) BUT we did have a dead something in our wall once. We had just moved into this house (8 years ago) and the downstairs closet started to stink. It was awful. The dead animal was in a spot that no one could get to and we just had to wait until the rotting was, well, over. We just cleaned out the closet and didn’t open the door for months. It was such a pleasant memory…
