My wife is proof that this statement is true. Incredibly hot showers = Crazy high pain tolerance.
Case in Point: Let me start by saying Megan is the best mom ever and is always looking for ways to make our kids smile… So she comes running downstairs and jumped off the steps trying to make a dramatic entrance into the basement to surprise our daughter. She hit her head on the top of the stairwell. Like hard. So hard it shook the whole house. So hard it knocked the drywall mud off the screws in the stairwell! Get the picture? She let out a yelp, and held her head for a few minutes, sucked it up, then went right back to playing.
Okay, let’s reverse the roles here and say that happened to me.
Nic comes running down the stairs, jumps, hits his head like that, and… Megan is cashing in the life insurance policy. Dead. Pull out that nice pine box and put me in the dirt. That would have been it.
To top it off later that night she looked at me with a smile and said “I really whacked my head there, didn’t I?”
Do you know any women with an incredible pain tolerance?
