I’m referring to an old-fashioned type of male you don’t see so much anymore.
The man who steps up, no matter what.
The fella who faces the bully, chases the bad guy, who runs into the burning building to save the cat.
He never forgets to call his mom, check the oil, or send flowers on your birthday.
Men who were taught to be men, as part of their heritage.
The kind that come with broad shoulders you can lean on, but still gets misty when his 10 year-old son hits a homer in Little League.
Firefighters, policemen and soldiers fall into that category, the roll up your sleeves type who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty.
Of course there’s also the ‘did well’ politician who doesn’t forget where his roots are, or the one who, despite an impressive lineage, has your back.
If you’re lucky enough to find one of these men, hold onto him, and hopefully, and more than likely, he’ll be a lover of good food, books, old films and a patriot to boot.
He’ll tell you he loves you even at your worse, as he tousles your head and kisses your nose, on his way to help a friend.
Too bad there wasn’t a number you could call to order one, like a good pizza.
