From Simple to Simpleton

This is sort of a followup to my previous post. So, if you haven't read the previous one, go read it. And also the comments that some people have been kind enough to leave. Otherwise, this one won't make any sense. Not that I ever make sense, but...

So..... since y'all (spoken with a true Texan drawl) have been asking what made me write that about daughters and women....

It was just idle musing one morning while I was stuck in traffic on I280. And because just a little while back, I had spent a few seconds scratching my head to make sure that I had spelt daughter correctly in some conversation. I just connected the dots. Voila! C'est tout!!

However, note how all the women have objected and are trying to find deep hidden meanings behind a simple obvious observation. I rest my case!

Men, on the other hand are quaking in their boots. Why? Because men are such simple creatures. For example, look at this (courtesy CNN: Weirdest work stories of the year):

Alleged robber asks victim out for date

After two men robbed a Domino's Pizza delivery woman, one of them called the victim from his cell phone to apologize -- and to ask her out.

Hmm... basic instincts, eh? It's a fine line between simple and simpleton, I suppose!

Hear hear. A line from an all-time-favorite Malayalam comedy comes to mind: "We are simple, kind and loving gentlemen" (it's way funnier if you imagine it spoken in a strong Mallu accent)
