Rachel’s Ramblings : World Cup’s end is music to women’s ears

Any woman who   felt that the World Cup had taken over her home would be lying if she claimed she isn’t relieved at the fact that it has ended. Infact relieved might be an understatement.

Football is a game that has so many women wondering what special power it has over men. During soccer seasons especially the World Cup, women have come second. And we all know that any hot blooded, straight man has only a woman on his brain every seven seconds.

Some guys used soccer as an excuse to spend every possible second away from home. If you were literally out every night, you’re finished because I can guarantee that you’ll be having a curfew now!

The woman put up with your ‘nonsense’ for one whole painful month. An entire month she spent chilling in the house alone or if you were there you might as well have been away because all you did was look at the screen!

Even after the match you spent another two hours talking about the game on phone with your guys until you dozed off. Just because she let you be doesn’t mean she was comfortable with it and it sure as hell doesn’t mean she was stupid either. There’s always a game plan.

This is the time for the anti-soccer woman to jubilate. She is going to be watching those soaps and series a guy can only watch on gunpoint to an almost shocking level.

You’ll be lucky if she’s into news because that’s about the only thing she will let you watch. To put it politely, her and the remote control will be Siamese twins!

And don’t assume you can just walk out of the house. As far as she’s concerned the games are over. You need to come up with an excuse so brilliant, she’ll think you rehearsed it! But if you’re acting skills are no better than Brendan Fraser’s just drop the idea and suffer in silence.

Any woman who was really bored and disgusted with the World Cup will not have mercy. She knows you leave the office at exactly 5:30 p.m and it only takes you five minutes to get home. During the World Cup you fed her with all that ‘I’m hooking up with the guys for the match’ crap.

Now, there’s no match so there won’t be any guys either! She has dinner conveniently ready by 6:00 p.m sharp and therefore expects you to be there to say the Grace. Not a second later!

It’s what they call payback time—sweet… sweetest revenge if I may say. She watched you having a blast with your games as though they would never end. If you thought she was just being noble then you have another think coming!
