I AM A MAN!
I believe that grilling, regardless of the weather, is always the first choice of cooking.
I enjoy any type of sports on giant HD plasma screen TV’s.
I think a man purse is still a purse.
My favorite movies include Lord of the Rings and Band of Brothers.
I love the smell of saw dust and gasoline.
I only see 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach is a fruit, not a color. I have no idea what mauve is.
I like to occasionally partake in drinking a Sam Adams and smoking cigars.
I can make fire with sticks and flint.
I can never have enough power tools even if I only use them once.
I take my coffee black.
However, God apparently has a sense of humor and felt that I needed to dial back the testosterone. In a big way. Michelle has scheduled her C-section for 8 July. That means I will be the lone man in the house with 4
Growing up I never imagined myself in this position. To quote the All-American family man Clark Griswold, “If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”
At any rate, I am beside myself with excitement, anticipation, and joy!
I am Man, but…
My best friend in the whole-wide-world is a girl (Michelle).
I can learn to appreciate dance recitals.
I already know all of the names of the Disney Princesses.
I cried when I watched My Girl for the first time.
I’ve been told that I am a good listener.
My truck will still be manly with pink car seats.
I’m not afraid to have my fingernails painted.
I will have a separate shotgun for each girl when they start dating...at the age of 45.
I will attempt to understand why beds need so many pillows.
I know how to make a quick impromptu pony tail.
…and my future man-cave will be bigger than your house. (Hey, I can dream, right?)
One step at a time,
