Ed, I've heard about this gardening business but never tried it. Personally I think your trying to curry favour with the opposition but will inevitably fall into no mans land rebuffed by both parties.
Dont expect to be rescued by the 'New Men' on 'Regards from' !!!

You can't garden in your current condition! You have a bad case of "bed sheet finger". Just politely inform your wife that any attempt to even lift a shovel, may incapacitate you further...

Too late Greg. I should've thought about that sooner. I think CJ and Jeanie threw in the "variables" because they know what they say is not necessarily what they mean. Now Deb said that if she asked for the shovel, it would mean that she was going to dig the hole. But I guess we'll never know if that's really what she means!

I beg to differ. I always say what I mean and mean what I say. It's what I DON'T say that can be a problem.

The truth is, I'm more like DJ. If I just wanted you to hand me the shovel, that's what I would ask for. And if I wanted something in addition to that, you'd know!

However, given the way you asked the question originally, you implied that your wife meant more than she said, so I was trying to figure out the "more" so that I could correctly intrepret her "simple" statement.

Sure women think they mean what they say. If they didn't they'd be mean. But if they did mean it, this thread wouldn't exist. Know what I mean?

And I mean that

Yeah, we all know what they said, but being guys, how do we know what that means?
