Reasons Why Women Need a Man

To put lotion on your back, in February.

To fix the cable, after you’ve kicked the box across the room.

To spoon with when you get a little chilly.

To happily do all the driving while you give directions as if you were Mapquest.

To walk the dog even though you both know, he likes you better.

To cry in his lap when your pants don’t fit.

To lie and say, oh honey, but I think you’ve lost weight.

To move the furniture when at 3 a.m., you decide to redecorate.

To fully understand, when you say take-out, it means, he has to go get it.

To coo, you’re so, so beautiful while rubbing your feet and refilling your glass, popping corn and changing channels…dusting, vacuuming, cheerfully separating whites in a much too tight French Speedo because you think it’s cute, after declaring, you’re just not in the mood.

Have I missed anything? 🙂    getPart.png

    Lemme see… put sunscreen on your back in the summer, unstick stuck doors and fix stuff that’s broken, protect you during scary movies, walk on the outside of the sidewalk (oh wait, that’s for gentlemen, not just men). I’ll be thinking about more 😉

    Men are also good for taking care of pain in the ass telemarketers. Oh, that’s right . . I am dating myself with that reference but hey . .I was the Terminator when it came to that. Called upon to give em my best Luca Brasi.

  6. No you haven’t missed anything, us men are absolutely superb at all of the things on your list, it’s no wonder you women hold us in such high esteem. The only missing one might be our modesty!

    My hubby is excellent at maintenance, loves to party and keeps me laughing. That suits me just fine.

    He cleans the bathroom, clears the snow off the driveway, builds a fire in the evening, takes me out for lunch or dinner without hesitation if I suddenly feel like it. Always washes the dishes and makes the coffee, too! How does a girl get it so good?

  9. Yep, you pretty well have it. Though there should be something in return…perhaps, THAT is why I am single.

    I don’t mind getting the take-out. I often feel like a hunter in a bearskin killing an ancient beast with a spear and then gutting it and hauling the meat back to the cave while the little cave woman has lit a fire for cooking so we can eat and light a different kind of fire later. Hehe. Great post!

    • This made me laugh. Reminded me of one of my favorite films as a kid…One Million BC, with Victor Mature. It was like kiddie porn, with him runnin’ around in very little, the women all legs and hair, rubbing sticks together. OY

    Pookie warms my car up if I’m going out in the winter, makes sure I have a supply of Reisling and Café Vienna, makes my breakfast, gives me massages, extends his hand to help me out of a chair (even though I can get up easily on my own), and holds my hand wherever we go.
    On the other hand, he likes to help me grocery shop so I don’t have to load and unload the bags. We come home with all kinds of extra items and I spend a lot more. I usually go shopping while he’s at work, ha ha.
