Okay, let's face it, ladies. Sometimes we are tough to figure out. Of course, it goes without saying that most of the men in our lives could try a little harder. For those men who are actually making the effort to interpret the complexities of the female gender, here is a handy little ACEO. Call it a cheat card, if you will. ACEOs are tiny, 2.5" x 3.5" pieces of art that fit easily into a wallet. Encourage the man in your life to carry this and refer to it often, especially when he finds himself in the doghouse without having a clue as to how he managed to land there.
Make sure you print out these instructions and give them to your favorite male. The card won't do him much good if he doesn't know what to do with the information now, will it?
1-Green With Envy: Somebody has something that the lady in your life wants. Find out what it is, and get it for her quickly. Or, even better, get the updated version.
2-A Case of the Blues: Sometimes women just get this. Take her out to dinner, COOK dinner (while remembering to clean up after yourself), hand over the remote control and bathe the kids while she watches her favorite show for a change. These suggestions might not cure the blues, but they sure can't hurt.
*** Whatever you do, DON'T ask her if she's "hormonal". Even if she is, she doesn't want to talk about it with you.***
3-Seeing Red: Need I say more? Something, or somebody, has made her mad!!!!! Just apologize, sincerely, even if you aren't the offending party. Then get out of the way.
4-In the Pink: When you see this face, the coast is clear, all is well, everything is just peachy. Try hard not to mess up, okay?
