Time to Man Up

Not only am I one of the manliest men in the blogosphere, I also am recognized as one of the most knowledgeable about wimmin and their behavior. It is a combination of a natural gift, coupled with years of study.

Can you imagine how upsetting it is when I wanted to fill in on another blog, one where it is a weekly feature to give the viewpoint in a "he said, she said" format and I was asked to submit a writing sample?

Yeah, I know. I was shocked, too.


But I did, and today, in a fight to the death, I will compete to win this plum non paying non job. Youse are welcome, no, more like encouraged, to stop by sometime today, and explain to Petra that I am wicked awesome, and should be the manly man chosen.

And, in other news, my post dedicated to my friend, Soccer Mom, was chosen as the best Soccer Mom's Birthday thread the other day. While I like winning stuff, I really only wrote it because Kirsten is a terrific lady.

If I came in second, I would have been fine.

I would have thought only major libraries would want 'samples' of your writing. This to preserve it for future generations!

@ Adullamite: Just as I would have thought, but there seems to be a total lack of interest.

@ Anon: I try to not be.

@ Michelle: Thanks. It would be nice, just depends on who shows up.

@ Etta: You'd think that should be enough

@ Dizz: Thanks

@ Reforming: The women/shoes thing is a key.

Da Old Man said...

@ Quirky: The pimp cup put it over the top. But you did a fine tribute.

A New Yorker said...

Youse so should be published about your knowledge of women. You Da Man after all!

Sandee said...

I shop like you shop. Know what you want, go get it and get the hell out. That's how I shop.

Have a terrific day. :)

Other than my husband, you are the manliest man I know!

Da Old Man said...

@ Lauren: It has been suggested by others I write the manly man handbook.

@ Sandee: Get in, get it, get out. Then go to the food court. :)

@ Memphis: Thanks.

@ Patricia: Thanks.

The Self-Deprechaun said...

You are the manliest Old man that I know. I am the ugliest deprechaun that I know. And my wife tells me I don't know wimmin.

Da Old Man said...

@ Claire: Yeah, he's been everywhere. Been married a couple times, had a female spawn, sister, and various girlfriends and friends who were wimmin over the years.

@ Self: They are wily.
