Do you remember that Seinfeld episode where Jerry was dating a woman that had extraordinarily masculine hands? Large and muscular?
Well, I saw a woman with man-hands today. I was standing behind her, facing her back. It was very crowded on the Pittsburgh/BayPoint train today around quitting time, so I was probably standing just 6 inches behind her. From the back, it was clear that she was female. Her slacks, her purse, her medium-length wavy hair, and her shoes. After about half way through my ride, I looked up on the vertical safety bar. I saw my right hand, another older woman's hand, and two pairs of male hands.
I knew who the older woman's hand belonged to.....there was an elderly woman standing next to me. I also knew there was a man standing in front of the woman whose back I faced. I was very puzzled at this point.....who did that second male hand belonged to? There is no way that this large, meaty, hairy hand with 5 overly clipped, wide and short nails belonged to a woman! This was the hand of a masculine plumber or lumberjack. The fist around the pole was strong and large....larger than the size of a softball (not baseball). And as that Seinfeld episode described, this hand certainly can break open a lobster, without tools.
I cautiously eyed the hand to match the arm and body. I was in shock that the hand belonged to the woman standing in front of me!! I've never seen a woman with such masculine and HAIRY hands!
Only Seinfeld will think of these random things! Gosh I miss that show. As much as I still enjoy the re-runs no matter how many times I've seen them, there really hasn't been, and probably will never be a new sitcom that is as witty and funny as Seinfeld.
