In the wise, wise words of Paula Abdul: Opposites Attract

I was thinking today that it would be funny to list a bunch of scenarios and then describe how each Jeff and myself would react to those particular circumstances. Because, pretty much every time, we would have opposite solutions.  Take these two for example:

1. Out of the blue, it is 99 degrees outside:
Jill: Complains often and loudly about it being too hot. Wears the least amount of clothing as humanly possible without being indecent and then spends long periods of time hauling the box fan to every room she travels, eventually jerry-rigging multiple pieces of furniture to cram the fan in a window that is 12 inches from her side of the bed before going to sleep. Continues to whine about it being hot.

Jeff: Lives his life exactly like it’s 60 degrees.

2. Needs to buy a new couch:
Jeff: Over the course of several months, visits every store that sells couches, looks at every website that sells couches, and flips through many design magazines to do “research”. Decides to think about it for a little while.

Jill: Goes to a store where they sell couches and buys one.

If you like this post, feel free to leave a sample "scenario" in the comments section and I'll do my best to  detail what our different responses would be. OR - I just had a brilliant thought! I should get JEFF to guest post and write HIS best guess at our different responses. Except:

3. Asked to write a guest post on a super awesome blog:
Jill: "Wooohooo!"

Jeff: "That's private. and PS - I'm busy."

This amused me greatly.

I can't think of any possible scenarios but I hope you share more. You two are completely awesome.
