Does Dirt Blindness Really Exist?

It’s Friday, and I am in the mood to end the work week on what I hope to be funny topic – men’s dirt blindness.  Why do I say this is funny?  Because it exists and we can’t do anything about it, so why not just have a laugh.

This week, I experienced a high level of “dirt blindness” by my husband.  First, I found a paper in our printer that he was done copying so I put it on his desk hoping he would decide what to do with it (i.e., toss it or file it).  The cats must have jumped on the desk because the paper ended on the floor just under his chair.  It sat for about three days.  Finally, I asked if he was going to do anything about the paper.  His response was, “I did not see it.”  And then there was the wine glass that sat in the office for a week.  And today, I said aloud,  “I hope that foil is not permanently stuck to our stove top.” (The stove was too hot to touch is still.)  Mind you, he was standing right above this area, but said he did not know what I was talking about.  I said, “Look down, honey.”  Again, his response was, “Oh! I did not see that.”

Yes, these are all minor things.  I am not complaining, but I am always curious on how this happens.  First, he said, “I am only trying to help.  I am sorry.  I really don’t see the things you see.”  Of course, this was very sweet…and true.  To feed my curiosity though, he suggested I read Dave Barry’s article on Male Genetic Dirt Blindness (MGDB).  I remember learning about Dave Barry articles back in college and loved them, so I thought, why not?

So here it is.  Mr. Barry’s attempt to explain MGDB!  Click here to read the article.  What do you think?

I've always dreamed of starting my own business one day. My struggle wasn't about how to do it, but instead, what I wanted to do. I realized how much I love baking - it is what I turn to when I am bored or stressed. There are so many things to create and so many ways in which to create them. I look forward to sharing my favorite treats with you.
