I Am Man. Hear Me Roar.

Remember that old Helen Reddy song, "I Am Woman"? I always hated that song... :-) but I'm borrowing the catch line in it. Why? 'Cause for this whole week, I am celebrating my manliness.

Why this week you ask? Because Sally is gone for the week and I'm "bachin". I am MAN!

Sal's mom flew into Lambert down in St. Louis and she went down there to spend the week with her mom and our daughter Nicky and the grandbabies. Nicky's husband went on a fishing trip, so it's a great big Italian women fest. No place for men or folks that "believe" they have the equal constitution of a barefoot woman armed with nothing more than a pasta ladle and a harsh look. Cross them and they will kill you with one swipe of that thing.

So here I sit. *ahhhhh* I stripped furniture all afternoon and right now, I'm sitting in my recliner, laptop on my lap, cold beer at my right hand, remote control at left.... and I'm watching cartoons... in my underwear.

I freakin' rule!

I had a salami sandwich for dinner with chips and some dip I whipped up. I ate in the living room, 'cause I'm a man and I like my food where I watch my television. A little while ago, I had a big stinky cigar. ROAR!! I have farted when I felt like it, I have belched when I felt the least little twinge of pressure on my stomach. Loud.

I am using dishes right out of the dishwasher and my shoes are in the middle of the floor. I haven't shut the bathroom door once yet! ROAR!!!

In short, I have reverted to the habits of a 12 year old, and I'm wallowing in it because I've been left unsupervised and now... I'm gonna have some ice cream. ROAR!

PS: Yes I know that link way up there that said it was Helen Reddy, went to a Slash and Steve Winwood version of Hendrix's "Hey Joe"... but wasn't that alot more impressive than Helen? :-) BTW that ending solo that Slash tears into... wow.

The following picture has nothing to do with my post today at all... but it's for my friend, Kent. He sent me a great writing of his on the subjects of environmentalists and diversity in our society...

Thanks Kent.

Somehow I knew you were gonna get busted. Anne takes off for Europe a couple times a year, so I get to "batch" it once in a while. It's a great feeling for, oh, about two days. Then I get behind and have a he!! of a time catching up. ROAR! (Spelled "squeak"). :)
