The Difference Between Girls and Boys

Girls: Borrow elements from every board game ever invented, a few dishes from the kitchen centre, little people (but at least one or two from each and every set) , a few plastic alligators, the family's only nail clippers, tape and a ball of string, a fistful of wooden blocks from the top shelf, and small containers of cheerios.

Set up elaborate play areas and compose complex story lines.

Boys: One stick or other phallic symbol.

Feet for running.

and men wonder why they don't "understand" women ... and/or vice versa

sometimes I wish life were as easy as "one stick or other phallic symbol and feet for running"

When little, my boys loved to role play with their animals, Lego, Star Wars figures, etc, plus anything they could find to make it more interesting. Nowadays it has to be role-playing games on the computer! These are the boy versions of girl narrative play.
