Do you know what this is?

Curling Iron

If so, there is at least a 50/50 chance you are a woman. (The answer’s in the image name.)

For a variety of reasons, I occasionally bring one of these to work. It stays hot for a while, so when I get back to my cube I leave it out a bit to cool off.

Two different men have noticed this thing and given it a lingering, inquisitive look, but said nothing.

It begins to dawn on me that a man would have no reason to know what the heck this is. It is not something commonly used by men, nor something that tends to cross the girlfriend barrier to enter a man’s domicile.

So if anyone gives it another lingering, inquisitive look, I will proudly proclaim its purpose, so that all may be peaceful.

Or maybe hurriedly hide it, as if it brings me great shame. I can’t decide which is funnier.

On a related note, if you know what this is, there is a possibility you may be a woman:

Eyelash curler


Draws. Sweats. Eats too much sugar-free candy.

    As long as it’s not plugged in, there’s no reason why item #1 couldn’t be interesting in a number of ways.

    That said, hot curling iron in bed is probably one step up from answering the phone while ironing:

    “Hello? OWWWW!” (sizzle)

    Don’t laugh – I went to high school with a girl that did this very thing.

  3. Curling iron and eyelash curler?

    What kind of man doesn’t know what those are?

    At first I was feeling an odd mixture of pride and emasculation that I could identify both of those things before I read a single word of the post, but that feeling quickly faded when I had this thought: Imagine being the girlfriend of one of the guys who gives those gizmos funny looks. Got that thought in your head? Good. Now imagine the outcome the night that he decides to surprise you and spice things up in the ol’ boudoir one night. Yikes…
