Hey listen up, this week is Listening Awareness Week! HELLO, I'm talking here.

There was a conversation that Traci and I had about how men and women have a tendency to tune each other out. Men have an ability to pick and choose key words in a conversation...food, sports, loving.

Women seem to have the ability to find the one thing we say wrong and remind us of it over and over again. As a man, I want to help the women know when we aren't listening. Okay, you probably already know when but let me try and help anyway.

We are not listening when:

You're talking about ballet, when the waiter just brought our food or when you tell us about your girlfriend's problems. Also when sports is on TV....alright if anything is on TV.

Here's the bottom line: 

We want you to listen and understand us a lot and love us a little. As a man, I know that we must listen AND love you a lot but not always try to understand it all. Believe me, it's better that way.
