I don’t know about you, but when I first read this tweet I thought “wow, this explains so much!” Is this how it works? Is this why, every time I ask my husband to give me an opinion on furniture or dinner options, he just stares into space? Is it not his turn to use the great collective brain?
While this theory would fit with many of the experiences we’ve had with the men in our life, it’s more likely that they’re just not paying attention. They’re using their own actual brain to think about who won that football game in 1993, or who would win in a fight between Bugs Bunny and Danger Mouse.
