8 Things a Grown Man Should Never Have

While acknowledging that all grown men are really just little boys trapped in old bodies…

There are a few things that Steve Calechman’s article in Men’s Health reminds us that “grown” men should never have:

1. A Black Eye – By now we should be smart enough to talk our way out of a fight…that we’re gonna lose.

2. PlayStation Thumb – (Guilty of this one) – Button shaped bruises on the thumb are embarrassing.

3. A Lucky Shirt – Maybe this played well in college, but by now we should know that the harder we work, the luckier we’ll be.

4. Professional Athletic Dreams – Hey Mr. Softball and Basketball man – not gonna happen.

5. Less Than $20 in our wallet.  Steve calls this “fiduciary nudity”.  A real man should always carry a business card and enough cash to pick up coffee, bagels, and the Sunday paper without whipping out the plastic.

6. The need to quote Dumb and Dummer, Borat, Caddyshack, etc.  Reciting someone elses lines reminds people that you haven’t the wit to write your own.

7. A Nerf hoop in his living room.  Ouch. Love this.  But okkkkk……

8. A recent story that begins with the phrase “So I said to the cop…”

That’s all for now.  Making a call to set up a game of Paint Ball….
