No doubt the more eagle eyed of my readers will have noticed from the above title that the word chosen for today’s blog is observe, so should you have noticed the title, I shall not be giving ten out of ten for observation as it was a little obvious.

I have very good peripheral vision which comes in very useful when I’m driving, but I have a feeling that men are generally less observant where emotions are concerned, which I think may come from the female ability to look at a screaming infant and interpret it’s needs. Whereas men generally speaking are too wrapped up in our own world to even notice the infant is screaming at all, let alone interpret any of the signs it may be giving off.

One can be in a social environment and the wife might whisper, “that was a bit cruel, what so and so said,” to one of the other ladies, “you could see she was upset.” To which my response might be, “really, I didn’t notice!” Not the perfect reply, I’ll admit, but at least had the same exchange have happened whilst I was driving with the two ladies in my car, I might have missed the subtle nuance of the remark but I would have been observant enough, not to have crashed.

The male of the species can be just as observant as the female, take for example the entrance into a room of a woman with a low cut top exposing a fair proportion of her breasts, I think it fair to say that every man in the room will notice straight away, it’s genetic, we can’t help looking.

It is true to say the women will have observed the display too, but the reasons will be different, for the women will be thinking, “this woman is a trollop, she has low morals and is no better than she ought to be!” Whereas the men will just be thinking, “Oh, look breasts!”

One never knows where a blog will go when one starts it, I had intended to comment on various different aspects of the definition of the word observe, but have instead written the entire thing about my observations of the differences between men and women. Still I think I managed to use the word observe sufficient times for it to qualify as a blog with the title, observe!

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
