Deep thoughts of a retired man

Cartoon Drawing Person Thought Stick Figure - Person Drawing ...

I worked in the yard today, and after doing so I sat down and had a glass of wine. 

The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.

My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, “Nothing.”

She then said, “That’s what you did yesterday!”

I replied, “I WASN’T DONE , SO I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW.”

The reason I said “nothing” instead of saying “just thinking” is because she then would have asked, “About what?” 

At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.

Finally I pondered an age old question:  “Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?”

Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they know?     

Well, after another glass of wine, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question. 

Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn’t really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. 

A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, “It might be nice to have another child.”     

On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, “You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts.”
