Thursday Thirteen

I know it's Thanksgiving. But I am offering up something different. Here are 13 things that would be different if women ruled the world!

1. No combustion engines. Come on, you know women would create something that runs cleaner and doesn't require oil and grease.

2. Rounded curves on appliances. Instead of corners we'd have smooth surfaces that didn't cut into you when you ran into them.

3. Lawn mowers that start without a lot of upper body strength. Any woman who has ever tried to pull the handle on those pull-start mowers knows what I'm talking about. You need to be a weight lifter to make those things run.

4. Regulations against chest hair. Instead of laws about going topless, of course. And definitely no hairy backs!

5. Chocolate at every meal. It wouldn't just be a treat anymore!

6. Faces without makeup would be quite acceptable, thank you. So would hairy legs.

7. Smaller, lighter tools that actually worked (not just the "toy-like" tools that some places offer up as an option for women. And they wouldn't be in pink, either.).

8. Computer games without extreme violence. Something more along the lines of the old Kings Quest or something. Or more puzzle games and brain games.

9. Less bloodshed. Women don't like gore and gross things, plus war is just so last millennium. Let's move on, shall we?

10. Those stirrups at the OB-GYN office would be padded, adjustable and warm. And the GYN would always have small hands.

11. No more jokes about the time of the month, mood swings, menopause, etc.

12. Viagra would be banned. Actually it probably would never have been invented; that effort instead would have gone toward better vibrators.

13. Perfume that smells good to women because they like the smell of it, not because they think men like it.

This could go one forever; thank goodness it's a Thursday Thirteen!

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here. This is number 115!


  1. Great list and definitely heated stirrup thingies, that's why I always wear socks when I go in,lol and you shocked me with number 12, I almost spit my coffee out rofl....Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Fabulous T13!

    I'll add one...fashionable, trendy shoes would be comfortable too.

  3. I am sure men will object to number one lol!

    My Thursday 13

  4. Hehhe nice list for T13 hehe. Happy Thanksgiving. Mine is up.

  5. I like all 13 - nice list. Hope you have a wonderful day!

  6. You're on a roll. I think if women ran the world men would be cooking turkeys today. (Bless the ones that do, like my brother Joey for the whole clan).

  7. Lol! Good list. I would go with no gyn exams and instead have a painless, non invasive test like sonogram. You know if men had to get those exams, there certainly would be another way to do them!!

    Great TT and Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. I like number 7. I'm completely unhandy, but like having my own hammer and screwdrivers!

  9. Great list--I nodded yes all the way along as I was reading!

  10. Love this list ;-)
    Thanks so much for visiting mine at Sacred Ruminations. I left another at Small Reflections ... just because. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
    Hugs and blessings,

  11. Awesome list!!#6 and 9 were my favs. Makeup free and less bloodshed... sound perfect to me :-)

    Happy Thursday 13 and Happy Thanksgiving!!

  12. I gotta agree with ya on most of those :)
    Have a great Thursday!

  13. What a wonderful world it would be....sigh.
    Happy Turkey Day!

  14. Anita, I love the list! Have you ever noticed that in the book of Genesis, it says that God created women for men? God says it isn't good for man to be alone, so He created a helper. Notice He didn't say that it wasn't good for women to be alone, lol! I swannee, every time Shannon loses his shoes, he looks to the ceiling. The longer I live with this man, the more that passage of scripture makes sense! lol

  15. LOL! It's ok for women to have hairy legs but not ok for men to have hairs on their chests and backs?

    Sounds good to me, but I'm not going to be handling the complaints! =D

  16. Hee, hee...great list, Anita! Amen to #3---I do a good bit of our mowing, but I always have to get my husband to start the mower.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
