A friend and I were having a conversation today about books and authors and she made the comment that she'd really like to spend a day inside the brain of a particular author in order to discover how someone comes up with a story like the one we just read.
That got me thinking...within whose brain would I choose to spend a day?
My first thought was a guy's brain. I haven't quite figured out which guy. Not anyone I've dated, because I don't want to know what they're thinking (or not thinking at all) about me. Not anyone famous, because obviously their thoughts aren't representative of the male population. Just an average guy. This is how I imagine a day inside a guy's brain would go:
I have to pee like a horse!
I wonder how horses actually pee? Do they hike a leg up? I should try that.
Mmmm...shampoo...hahaha POO...hahaha I wonder why the word poo is in shampoo...

I love food.

I hate work.

Why don't we have naps at work? There should be naps. And baked goods. Why don't any of the girls around here make baked goods?

Is my day inside a guy's brain overly simplified? Perhaps. Is it roughly accurate? I think, yes. And just to be clear, I mean no offense to the thinking processes of men...I know you all are capable of thoughts at levels higher than an eight-year-old boy. But because this is mostly all I hear guys talk about, it's what I assume yall think about all the time. Which is why I'd really like to spend a day inside a guy's brain...to find out how close my perceptions are to reality.
