The other night while Devin and I were talking before bed we discovered something interesting.
Men keep track of the days between making love. (That wasn't the discovery. I'm pretty sure it's a solid fact in most relationships.) Generally, women might keep track, but the accuracy or importance of the number is no where near as serious to her as to him.
So, he was insisting it had been a whole 5 days. I told him I was sure it was less than that. We figured out that our last time had been on Wednesday night.
Then he proceeded to count, "Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. Five days" he said.
I recounted, "Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and it's now Monday so four days."
We were in agreement that the last time had been Wednesday and that the current day was Monday, but we still did not agree on the number of days between. We count differently.
He explained, "Wednesday to Thursday is one, Thursday to Friday is two, Friday to Saturday is three, Saturday to Sunday is four, Sunday to Monday is five."
I figured we shouldn't count the "Sunday to Monday" because well, we were gonna do it, so that day isn't factored in. He disagreed and said it was five FULL days. I still see it as four.
This was a discovery to me because now I know 5 days to him means 4 days to me, 4 days to him means 3 days to me, etc. This knowledge is very helpful for me when I'm trying to understand what the heck he's thinking when we disagree on these statistics!
So, do you say it was 4 or 5 days?
