Boys & Girls

Boys love their toys

Just as girls love their pearls


Boys love the mechanic,

Pride themselves in getting their hands dirty to put their toys in good shape

While girls love the automatic,

Delighting themselves in the sparkle and glitter of their jewels

Boys love the balanced sound blasting from the stereo

Girls love the comfy seats and their fresh leather smell


Boys handle their toys like their favorite girl

Tenderly, with enough attention to spare

Girls handle their pearls like a pet

Dotingly, like a golden egg


Boys do not give up on their toys easily even when they are messing up

Only letting go after all modes of intervention have proven futile

Girls never get satisfied with their pearls, always desiring more

The latest, the trendiest, the ‘must-haves’ of the moment


Even when the tables turn

And girls are to have the toys

And the boys, the jewels

The value is the same:

Girls will dote on the toy as long as it serves them

But it doesn’t stop them from looking around for the next best one

Boys will preserve their jewels like curated art and trophies

Showing them off with pride each chance they get


Want to know how much a man loves?

Watch how he treats his toys

Want to know how much a woman loves?

Watch how she keep her pearls
