I just had to go and ask a dumb question. What’s wrong with me? I need to think things through, and use Google more often, apparently – before asking my husband weird questions.
The other day, my daughter was talking about how her 6 foot 3 inch boyfriend throws her over his shoulder. This reminded me of when my husband did that to me, back in our college days, and when my ex-boyfriend (rest in peace) did the same thing. He also was over 6 feet tall.
On his way home from work earlier (YAY for early days!), I decided to ask my husband why men throw their women over their shoulders. After a few moments of silence, I hear a snicker, followed by “It’s a caveman thing”. ………………………………………. and more laughter after he heard my response. I’m certain he imagined my matching facial expression.
So, I proceeded to Google anyways, and found out that it’s probably because they like to ‘sweep their women off their feet’. RIGHT.
I don’t know the real answer, but I’m going to assume it’s to demonstrate strength and dominance – because what women doesn’t want a strong, dominant man?
Wait … what did I just admit to?
