Qu'est Que C'est*

Note: This has nothing to do with recent events.

Vikki Ortiz, or, as Ramon would call her, The Vikki, has recently posted on Psycho Chicks.

These are the women who do crazy things – like slash their ex-boyfriend’s tires,
or fall asleep in front of their ex’s apartment door while waiting for them
(even though the ex-boyfriend has moved on and has no idea why she’d be there),
or text message a guy dozens of times before he ever sends one back.

Now, I can tell you from experience, as well as conversations with countless other men, guys generally think all women are psycho. It's nothing personal, really. The truth is that when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex we're generally way out of our league if we even attempt to figure out what's going on in a woman's head.

We tend to classify that as "psycho."

Granted, very few women go to the extremes Vikki describes (thank goodness). And the ones that do tend to earn reputations for doing so (ladies...guys do warn one another). But what men refer to as being "psycho" among the rest of the women out there is actually something many of us find quite endearing. It's an aspect of a woman's personality we grow to appreciate, though we may often times complain about it.

I mean, seriously, what's the deal with shoes?

The point is that women have to sometimes realize that men are fairly simple creatures when compared to the fairer sex. I'm certain this drives them crazy, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles.

(And yes, if the cookie crumbles on to the floor, we will still pick it up and eat it.)

So to the true psycho chicks out there, the very ones Ms. Ortiz describes, consider just how far off the map you are when compared to the rather primitive machinations of the male mind.

And to you guys out there who can't get enough of those ladies, here's some advice:

Run run run run run run run away!*
*If you don't get the reference, go here.

I was thinking more "Run away! Run away!" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

First of all bravo to Vikki and her wonderful writing :)

Just as I am attracted to the "bad boys" of the world many men are attracted to the skanky Tara Reid's that are out there.

It is easy to put the blame on the bad boys and psycho girls but the real blame belongs to those of us who tolerate their bad behavior.

As for a little blurb in Casper's post: Men I implore you DO NOT eat the cookie crumbs from the floor. Really.It may take all of your inner strength but don't do it.
