You're AM and I'm FM

You're short wave, and I'm satellite. In other words, we are on different wavelengths. Last night I was watching Invader Zim with the girls, and I got sleepy. I didn't get to catch up on enough of my sleep this weekend. So at 9 PM I fell asleep in front of the TV. 9:30-ish I feel a tap on my forehead. It's R. Wakes me from a dead sleep for no good reason other than he's glad to see me or something. So I wake up and go upstairs. He follows and lays down on his bed, and next thing I see his eyes are closed. So as I'm going out to go to bed, I tap him on the forehead, thinking "see how you like it". He follows me out and thanks me because it was so nice that I touched him on the forehead. Are we on different wavelengths? Or perhaps it's different planets?

You two are in different planets!I think you should have told him you were pi$4ed for being awaken. he doesn't know unless you tell him .Sadly , maybe not even then!

I'm so sorry. There is nothing that can be done. I can't think of the proper revenge. Well not anything legal, lol!

I know, but I've told him so many times, and he so clearly doesn't get it, so I am just pretty much done with telling him stuff.

How long have you been married? The more the years the more such things will happen. Neither you will understand his problem (according to him) and nor will he try to know what you are going through. Men probably think that understanding woman is an impossible task so they never try doing it. And we are better off without men trying to understand us. They should rather listen to what we say than trying to analyse us

Sorry for that, Dawny. Didn't i tell you to keep that griddle pan at hand 24 hours a day. It would have made a hell of a TOUCH don't you think? TATA.

You started another discussion about people treating you the way they want to be treated, and I think that applies here. He did something to you he thought was cute, so he felt you reciprocated. Even after the years you have been married he does not realize that you only fall asleep on the sofa if you are exhausted. He also has not gotten the message that you are done. I guess you are right, wrong wavelengths.

Revenge is sweet, he seems to like it. Maybe different wavelengths but men got sensitive antenna which can receive wrong signals sometimes.

well... the husbands always misinterpret . i think it is not saying you have different wavelengths but perhaps during that time, you have different needs.

Absolutely! Double the fun....or, we could have a "bring your own mallet" party. Every time someone with the initial "R" opens their mouth to speak...whammo! That would be fun.

I don't really have anything sensible to say. So perhaps I should sing? Walks off singing: You say either and I say either You say neither and I say neither Either, either, neither neither - let's call the whole thing off............ OR: A fine romance with no kisses A fine romance myfriend this is...... OR: Wise at last, my eyes at last Have cut you right down to your size at last...... Ella Fitzgerald always had a song to meet any occasion. I still rate her. Night night. This old lady is tired so hopefully I wi sleep good tonight. You do know not to take me seriously don't you? Well - I wasa little serious - just a little. Night night again

How about the ending of 'wise at last'? Sings softly: Romance finis (something, something) finis Those ants that invaded my pants finis Bewitched, bothered and bewildered no more

I can't catch up on what mean here, my friend. Is this a literal things or this is pointed on the real classification of signals and bandwidth? Or this a kind of figuring how you feel with your partner and how your partner feel about you. And the wavelength is define as what your feelings with your partner?

Well, I've always known that men and women are definitely not from the same planet and your sharing this gives a lot more proof that this is the case. I wish that there was a way that you were able to figure it all out so that you could enlighten the rest of us about the situation, but I don't think that there is enough time in the day to be able to figure this one all out. Sorry that he woke you up from sleep though.

How inconsiderate!!! I can relate to this Dawny. I told you about that woman in Dad's life? Well, she used to act so concerned about me. I was running temperature this time - almost 103 or so. You know how tough it is to sleep then. So around 5 or so I slept. Dad was in town. So this lady serves everybody some tea, and actually wakes me up for some hot tea, with her cold hands on my forehead to check whether my temperature was coming down or not. :) Wonder what my mom would've done.

Lol no. Her mom wouldn't have woken her up. At least my mom does not wake me up for anything when I am down with temperature and having a good sleep. That lady probably doesn't understand what to do as she is extra concerned, she wants to be the best in front of you, so that you can praise and complement her in front of your dad All to impress your dad I think

I think you could well be on different wavelengths my friend. You could've tried throwing a brick at his forehead instead. Knowing him though, he probably would've thanked you for the brick..start hugging it or something!

Apparently, you can buy realistic-looking rubber bricks that you can throw at the TV..or wherever lol. I could've done with one on Sunday as I was watching Blackpool get beat by money-bags Manchester City. City's first goal was off-side so shouldn't have been allowed..which was the time I chucked my specs case across the room. Luckily John wasn't sitting on the settee where I'd thrown it!

I never think family life is mysterious journey to understand your spouse. I often hear my parent fight over small matters (I think ) but its really important to them. I think its happen to you, because its always 2 people with different mind. Television and couch is usually great recipe is we want to sleep, its something about TV sound thats made us feel relaxed and one thing we know we sleep for hours with TV on.

It appears so..but maybe you should have joked when he woke up..and said There how does it feel to get woken up..I hate getting woke up I went to bed at 9:15 pm and my dog woke me up growling continuously at 11:30pm. But when I checked nothing was there but shadows..she wasn't barking just growling..then I tried to go back to sleep and hubs woke me up just as I was dozing and then I couldn't get back to sleep so after laying there a 30 minutes, I ended getting up and online. and so here it is now 5 am and I still am awake.

Men are from Mars . . . After 50 years with a near-perfect husband and after bringing up 5 wonderful sons, I STILL so often think "It must be a male thing!" because it is beyond my comprehension.

I think my hubby and I are on different planets sometimes as well. But, I will give say, my husband knows NEVER to wake me up if I fall asleep. He tried that once and I chewed him up and spit him out that I think he is now scared to wake me up...lol

I'd hate to say it, but as guys we wouldn't even know what the difference is. You see, for you, you are already looking at this scenario as an example of wavelength differences, but for guys we may have not gotten over the tapping. Moreso the meanings behind it. It's just a I-tap-you, you-tap-me thing. Doh!
