the library is a place of learning... bizarre things...

In honor of Fathers' Day - the "library lane" (their monthly newsletter) has the following info to share:

Men are Just Happier People
What do you expect from such simple creatures?
Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can never be pregnant. Car mechanics tell you the truth. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too "icky". You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000 - Tux rental $100. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck. You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes--one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.
No WONDER men are happier!

okay, so not ALL of that applies to my man...

but Happy Father's day to M.O.T.H. - and all of those other men out there who work themselves ragged to support their families even though their kids usually save the majority of the hugs and kisses for Mom... thanks for all you do, for all you are, and for all you give!

Yeah, but they usually can't rock the heels like we can!

Doing their nails with a pocket knife drives me nuts!!! True story! Love the shoe comment! Love the whole article for that matter! Pretty much nailed it!

Men sure have it easy. Who knows what they would do if we weren't around to make them do stuff?

I LOVED that T... wish i would have read it earlier! I'm forwarding it to my husband right now!

So fun and true!

The more we both say about our spouses, the more I believe we would get along famously!

We NEED TO get together! PRONTO!
