Observing Men While Their Wives Or Girl Friends Are Shopping

When we are vacationing in Door County, I always love to shop in my dear friend Judy Surges’ Hide Side Boutique women’s apparel store.  My Green Brain also likes to observe the shoppers, especially the men who are shopping with their wife, significant other, or girl friend.

It’s easy for me to decipher the Color Brains of each gentleman.

The Yellow Brainers tap their watch to make sure the women know what time it is and that they have other activities on their schedule.

The Blue Brainers are very helpful and search the clothes racks and shelves for clothes they know will look good on the woman they love. Once they find something they like they will take it to the dressing room door and thoughtful announce the treasure they found.

The Green Brainers do not want to take part in the woman’s shopping adventure and remain outside relaxing on the “Husband” bench Judy has provided outside her store.

The Orange Brainers have as much or even more fun than some of the women. They think shopping is fun, they enjoy spending money on their beloved, and encourage the woman to purchase all she needs to complete an outfit, including a  hat, purse, shoes, scarf, and jewelry!

I made a special note of one Green Brain husband’s comment, which I overheard when Judy asked him how he liked his wife’s selections.

Mr. Green precisely stated  “A one size fits all top,  from an engineering point of view it makes perfect sense!”

    I’m not fond of shopping, and Len (my husband), even less so. He’s definitely GREEN brained in this activity. Husband’s bench — different zip code preferred — is his style.

      Laurie, I am also not fond of shopping. However, Jordan loves it! That’s why shopping online is the best answer for Green Brainers who can give their zip code for delivery. 🙂

    What color is this husband’s brain–it’s black and blue when shopping with my wife! Guess I deserve it because I’m always causing trouble.
    For instance, while the wife was shopping in a department store, I set the alarms of several clocks on display to ring at the same time.
    I enjoyed the resulting disruption (as would my dearly remembered Uncle Al)’ but not the wife and other shoppers.

      You always make me laugh with your colorful comments. Yes, I could see you setting the alarm clocks and your beloved Uncle Al laughing at your behavior. Thanks for the 🙂 🙂

    And which are the men that ‘dog’ their woman’s footsteps, almost running into them when they stop???

      Hi, “Silver Sparkle Sister”. So lovely to hear from you. Those men who “dog” a woman’s footsteps are “Yellow Brainers” who always need to be in control of their live and often other people’s lives.
