Slow Day

Its been a good few days since my last entry. I hope you’re not in eager anticipation of this entry because its a recycled forward. Its bad on two levels, being recycled and being a forward. The only thing worth putting up is the comments I made on it. God, it really has been a slow blogging day.

Anyway, some may still like this.

My friend sent me this email forward.

WORDS WRITTEN BY AN OBSERVANT WOMAN.

Good men are indeed all around us. We pass them on the streets, in the malls and the halls at work. Most we can’t see because we don’t know what a good man really looks like. He usually isn’t flashy enough or rich
enough to turn our heads.

He might not wear a suit or push a BMW. He might not have a “body like Vin Diesel with a Brad Pitt face”. But, as you mature, you realize it’s better to find someone who’s got your back than someone who turns your
head.

A good man doesn’t agree whole heartedly with everything you say. He doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear and do the opposite. He doesn’t declare how sensitive, sweet, caring, sincere, yada yada he is (he wont
have to because it shows). He has his own opinions and you may clash, but he doesn’t have to degrade you to prove he’s right. He even admits at times to being wrong, especially if you are willing to do the same.

A good man is not going to meet every item on your checklist. He is human with frailties and faults mixed in with all of his wonderful, strong attributes. He needs your love and respect. He needs to feel that you don’t live to “catch” him doing something wrong so you can declare,   “Aha! I knew you were a dog!!”


A good man doesn’t necessarily give you a huge birthday or Valentine’s gift. He shows his love in the ways that are comfortable to him. Don’t judge him by TV standards (…Bold and the Beautiful…). No one lives that fairy tale for real. You’ll miss out on your own fairy tale by buying into the myth that our men are no good. It’s just not true. Men, we salute
you, and
thank you for who you are and all you’ve done.


She normally never sends these so I had to retort with:

“<name> what vomit inducing corn filled event has just transpired in your life to inspire the forwarding of such an email?

i’m all ears.”

She wrote back saying:

“lol lol lol lol thats so funny. it is true thats why i sent it”

So at least my comment was funny.

  1. A slow but funny day! At least, men are a source of comedy in our otherwise busy lives. Ah, “perfect numbers like perfect men are very rare”!
