The other day I had the following conversation with Chris:
[While watching ESPN on tv, a female reporter came on.]
Me: "I wonder if side-bangs will be one of those things that we look back on five to ten years from now and think how ridiculous they look...You know, like when people feathered their bangs in the 90s?"
Chris: "What are side-bangs?"
Me: "Did you just see that reporter on tv? She had side-bangs."
Chris: "I didn't notice."
Katie: "Okay, well, like Lauren's hair." [Lauren is my sister for those of you who don't know.] "Lauren has had bangs for three of four years now."
Chris: "Lauren has bangs?"
Me: "...you've got to be kidding me."
I don't get it! Is this conversation the result of unfamiliar terminology? Is it simply a lack of observation on Chris' part? The thing is, Chris is usually very observant. He tends to notice things like whether I have a new article of clothing or whether I've painted my nails. Could it be that guys specifically just don't notice hair? I am totally at a loss here!
