What do guys talk about? Doesn't every girl want to know? When two good guy friends hangout (at a Cubs game) for a couple of hours, what could they possibly talk about?Assumptions I'd made:
- Fantasy baseball
- Hot chicks (as they walk by)
- Fantasy football
- The a-hole at work
- Fantasy baseball
Turns out, their conversations are a lot more like girl conversations than I thought! I sat next to two 30 somethings that allowed me to eavesdrop the entire night. I was cracking up. They sounded like two chicks, but with longer breaks of silence between topics!Reality check -- this is what they actually talked about:
- Working out
After 7 innings of looking at Derek Lee, one guys said, "I bet D Lee does a lot of lunges. I should do more lunges" His friend's reply, "No, you should do more squats. D Lee definitely does squats"- Food
After getting their second helping of nachos, one guy said to the other, "I went to this great place the other night, where they serve small plates. I thought it would be gay, but it was really good and I wasn't too full when I was done so I could drink more." His friend said, "Did you drink wine too?"- Making plans
One guy said, "You should come over with your girlfriend next weekend, we could grill out." His response, "Can I bring her parents? They always make me pay when we all go out."- Exes
"Remember Suzie? Well, I heard she got married. Good for her." His friend, "Poor guy."- Gaining weight
"Do you really think squats would work to help me drop a few? The friend said, "Yah, look at D Lee!"- Girls
"We hired two new chicks at work." The friends expected response, "Are they hot?"
"Not bad, one has a boyfriend, the other is really young."
I did learn from these same two guys that if they had even one more friend with them that the conversation would be totally be different -- it's only acceptable two guys by themselves to talk about that stuff, but in a group, no way.
