A Bonus Surprise

Last weekend I went to a local book store that sells new and used books. I picked up Emily Giffin’s Something Borrowed. I started it this week and I am actually enjoying it from the get go ( a first for me with her books). When I purchased the book there was a little something extra in there. Inside was a little red business card. It was for a seafood restaurant in Charleston called Hyman’s. I never ate there when I lived in Charleston  so if any of you had, how was it? Anyways, on the flip side of the card there was a list of inanimate objects and whether each one was a male or female. So, I have decided not to be selfish and share the list with everyone. Here ya go:

You may not know that many nonliving things have a gender.

For example:

  1. Ziploc Bags– they are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
  2. Copiers – They are female, because turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. It’s an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
  3. Tire – Male, because it goes bald and it’s often over-inflated.
  4. Hot Air Balloon – Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there’s the hot air part
  5. Sponges – Female, because they’re soft, squeezable and retain water.
  6. Web Page – Female, because it’s always getting hit on.
  7. Subway– Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
  8. Hourglass – Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom
  9. Hammer – Male, because it hasn’t changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it’s handy to have around.
  10. Remote Control – Female…..Ha! You thought it’d be male. But consider this – it gives a man pleasure, he’s be lost without it, and while he doesn’t always know the right buttons to push, he keeps typing.

Hope it made you laugh! Enjoy your weekend!

    Hyman's is a horrible tourist trap. They have decent food, mostly fried seafood, but there are always huge lines. With so many FABULOUS options downtown, it is an absolute outrage for anyone to eat at a mediocre joint like Hyman's.

    Now let me tell you how I REALLY feel! Hahahaha!
