Why boys like girls

We are in the car and Neil is talking away. Suddenly he asks, "Mom, do you remember the Pink Lady?"

"Pink Lady?" This is one of those mom moments when you are scanning your brain as fast as you can to figure out what he is talking about.

"The Pink Lady, Mom!" The emphasis is clearly to help my ignorant mind catch up. I fake it.

"Sure, the Pink Lady."

"The men get crashed and other stuff following her."

Now it is coming clear... He's talking about the ad with the woman with the unibrow who rubs Planters peanuts all over herself and the men are drawn to the peanut pheromone. (Watch the YouTube video here.)

"Yeah, I remember the Pink Lady."

"The boys all like her because she loves nuts."

Indeed.

Don't all of us boys like a woman who likes nuts?
