Weird vs. Stupid

Last night David and I were watching the 3rd Season West Wing episode, "The Women of Qumar" and there's a scene where Josh and Amy are flirting. Amy says something like, "Guys like you want to be hit over the head," which obviously baffles Josh and so he leaves. As Josh is leaving the building and hailing a cab, a water balloon falls from above and almost hits him on the head. Josh, looking up, sees Amy standing on the balcony above, smiling down at him and the look on his face is priceless as he realizes that she's trying to get his attention by, in fact, hitting him on the head. I opened my mouth to say, "Boys are stupid," just as David was saying, "Girls are weird." Now that was priceless.

(And as a side note, obviously Aaron Sorkin really gets women because in a later episode Josh comments to Amy as she's leaving his apartment, "You'll call me in 30 seconds from your cell phone because that's where the real conversations always take place." I'm just sayin'...)
