The Husband never listens to anything I say. A typical conversation between us will go like this:

Scene: The Husband and I are watching a movie on TV

ME: Hey! It's that guy from Law & Order!


Two minutes pass

HUSBAND: Hey! Isn’t that the guy from Law & Order?

This sort of thing happens constantly. So when I heard a discussion on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me about a recent study demonstrating that men have a harder time listening to women’s voices then men’s, I couldn’t wait to tell The Husband.

“Husband,” I said, “I heard that there is a study showing that men have a hard time listening to women’s voices because they are more complex.”

Completely without irony, The Husband said, “What?”
