Baseball or Golf?

August 30, 2009

I love baseball, but I really don’t like it as a metaphor for relationships. How did this start, anyway? “How’d your date go last night?”“Ah, I got to first base, that’s it.”“Dude, stick with it, you’ll score soon enough.” I am pretty certain I know what it means to “score”, but what does first, second, […]

Women’s Beauty Products

August 28, 2009

A little over 10 years ago I had a roommate who was getting married. Being a finance guy, he was adamant that he and his fiancé establish an operating budget before they finalized their “merger.” (My guess is that on their honeymoon there was a lot of renegotiating and multiple mergers, but that’s a different […]

Ford F-150 (wink wink)

August 27, 2009

I love the Ford F-150. Its such an awesome truck! (the preceding was a shameless product promotion for my own amusement). OK, so I don’t know who actually wrote the following “Random Thoughts of the Day” but if anyone does, please give me their name so that I can give them proper credit. This was […]

Rates of Exchange

August 18, 2009

I admit it, I eavesdrop on occasion, and just such an occasion arose a few days ago as I was waiting to be seated at a restaurant. I overheard two teenage girls talking about whether someone named “Morgan” really liked hanging out with them, and if he did, why he always ditched them, etc. So, […]

Boobs Or Home Theater?

August 17, 2009

10 Reasons why your money is better spent on a Home Theater System than on a boob job for your wife (in no particular order). 1) A Home Theater System has a mute button. I could probably stop right there. 2) The Home Theater System is ready for you 24/7. Any time you want to […]

Romancing A Guy? Really?

August 15, 2009

I hate to harp on Glamour Magazine (well, not really, I actually enjoy it), but c’mon, this month’s issue has an article called “The Real Way To Romance A Guy” (Its on page 178). The title alone undermines the entire credibility of the article. Ladies, it’s time to face reality: you don’t romance a guy! […]

Women’s Magazine Propaganda

August 12, 2009

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day, and he was telling me about the amount of stress his wife had been under lately. He said it had been months since they had sex. In fact, he said she was so up tight that she’ll go 3 or 4 days without even […]

What Were You Thinking?

August 10, 2009

“What were you thinking????” If only I had a dime for every time I heard that question. And I you had better believe that I hear it . . . often! Like the time my wife and I were interviewing babysitters, and I was asking about pricing: “So, its $9 an hour for the first […]

The New BlackBerry for Her

July 30, 2009

What is it with women and the BlackBerry? I have never seen so many people so addicted to such a little device. Is there something going on that we men don’t know about? Seriously, I am waiting for the following ad to come out some day: Verizon wireless is pleased to introduce the all new […]

Whatever!!

July 21, 2009

When did this word become an appropriate response to behavior alternatives posed by adults to children? As in, “Well, you can either clean up your room, or lose the DS for a week.” “Whatever!!” Clearly there is a “disconnect” here between the parental perception of the gravity of the situation and the perception held by […]
