I have a bit of news for you that the male population would like you to know. Be it your boyfriend, your dad, your husband, your coworker, your neighbor, your mailman; they all would like this info made known.
If they are: tired, hungry, or sick, they are the most tired, the most hungry, and the sickest that anyone has ever been. Ever. And ever will be.
And in case you think that you could understand the agonizing pain they are in, you can't. Because you have not been working, going to the store, cooking, or trying to do anything that would cause you to use energy. No. Instead you have been lying around all day (every day) sleeping and eating, so you are constantly renewing your energy source and also by nature "healthy" is your middle name.
So please, when you hear a male say they are really tired, or extremely hungry, or that this time they are so sick you would not understand how much their throat hurts; please do not try to empathize, that's insulting to their pain. But, take that as a warning and gear up, because this time wont even come close to the discomfort they will be in next time.
I just turned 25 and I live in Orange County, California with my husband. We love God, love life, and love trying new adventures together. In June I will have completed my Masters in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. I hope to some day teach like my parents, and write a book about how all of this somehow relates together. It always does.
