Okay, let me be clear: not the mean, war-mongering



Not the idiots with shit for brains, and a deeply imbedded mommy complex. No. Not that kind.


Just every other kind.


Men! Men! Men!


I’ve always loved men. Even the ones who haven’t enjoyed my company, and there have been a few two (though I know it’s hard to believe, on par with just about anything that comes out of Chris Matthews mouth).


I feel comfortable in a room of men- Old. Young. Big. Small. Straight. Gay. World Leaders.The guy who picks up my trash.

No one’s off my list.


They amuse me- so willing to discuss… anything.


Sometimes uncomfortable when they hear my opinion- or the way I deliver it.


Usually intrigued.


Sometimes put-off.


I don’t much care if they find me d-e-s-i-r-a-b-l-e. No, not one bit.


That said, men do have a few uniquely superb traits that I admire…


  • Men don’t hold grudges like women do. I once told Ben that I thought he was an immature, idiot boy, who couldn’t find his way out of a burning paper bag if he, himself, had set it on fire and had a garden hose stuck up his ass. A hour later he asked me if he could fix supper. I, on the other hand, would have poisoned his nightly Alka Seltzer, which he needs because I say things like that to him.

  • Men can say awful things about each other and not take offense. Like when one guy questions why the other guy’s wife ever had children with him. They always laugh at this. I guess they see it as some kind of badge-of-honor, like, ‘Yea. She slept with me loser. How awesome is that?’ kind of crazy bad cool. If I said that to a man about his wife, he’d probably ask me if…. maybe this isn’t the best example after all.

  • Men can talk for hours about the same God damn thing with other men, and never get bored. I have l-i-t-e-r-r-a-l-y been present when this has happened and have become skilled at taking naps with my eyes open. Sorta like a supreme multi-tasking female/male hybrid, because seriously, we all know that they’re only kissing each other’s asses for access to the open bar.

  • Men can fall asleep on demand. I really can’t talk about this. I’m too tired.

  • Men don’t give a crap about how they look. Take a look to the right ladies. Over the laptop. Boom.

  • Men are natural navigator’s which is evidenced by their refusal to stay on main thoroughfares when traveling and yet still insist that they arrived as planned. Christopher Columbus is a historic example.

  • Men have Life priorities in order. Eat. Sex. Sleep. Truly. Beauty in it’s most elegant form. Nothing like the symmetry of streamlining to set the world on fire. Which they do- the ‘Fire’ thing. To the World.


Men! Men! Men!


Can’t live with them, and can’t seem to get them out of our way…


Thank God women are better drivers.

    • Cheryl - They really are simple and I LOVE that about them. Women could take a lesson or two. Thanks for stopping by Lana and taking the time to comment- AWESOME!!ReplyCancel

  • Melissa Senecal - Can’t live with ’em, can’t shoot ’em. I have always been better friends with and more comfotable around men. Some of them, ok most of them I wouldn’t have dated even on a bet but they are still some of my closest friends. You gotta love them. They are like puppy dogs. Scratch them behind the ears every once in a while and they’ll (mostly) be loyal.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - SO TRUE! All of it Melissa! Though I have shot a few.ReplyCancel

  • Diane - Cheryl, this is your best post yet! And your record didn’t need beating! I, too love men. Some time ago, I was in a situation when the people around me knew I was going to start crying. Two boxes of Kleenex appeared on either side of me. At the same time. Both wielded by men. They are so fine!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - See….. they are so fragile really. Just Teddy Bears if uncomfortable, which is pretty much everywhere they’re not in a pissing contest with another male (ps: your’e comments keep me going. Thank you). XXOOReplyCancel

  • Mari Collier - Men are far more interesting than many women. I’ve never wanted to talk about cleaning house, crafts, etc. The ones that just talk about cars, however, bore me to the point of running out of the room or disappearing in a hurry.ReplyCancel

    I have always been able to get along better with men for some reason.

    And your list there…you nailed it.ReplyCancel
