Damn, It's Good to Be a Man!! and The strength of a man.
Can't have one without the other right?
We are MEN. We are Good, We are Not So Good. We do the right things as much as we do the Not So Right Things.

Damn, It's Good to Be a Man!!
Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be president. You
can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell you the truth. You don't give a rat's ass if someone notices your new haircut. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to
another gas station because this one's just too icky. Same work - more pay. Wrinkles add character.
Wedding Dress $5000; Tux rental $100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically
expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. Your pals never try to trap you with: "So, notice anything different?"
One mood, ALL the damn time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. Dry cleaners and hair stylists don't rob you blind. You can leave the
motel bed unmade. You can kill your own food.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you to something, he or she can still be your friend. Your
underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. If you are 34 and single, nobody notices. Everything on your face stays its original color.
You can quietly enjoy a car ride from the passenger's seat. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You don't have to clean the apartment if the
maid is coming.
You can quietly watch a game with a buddy for hours without thinking: "He must be mad at me." You don't mooch off other's desserts. You can drop by to
see a friend without having to bring a little gift.
You are not expected to know the names of more than five colors. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. You are unable
to see wrinkles in your clothes.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You don't have to shave below your neck.
Your belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes, one color, all seasons. 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 24th in 45 minutes.
Damn, it's good to be a man!
It's all good and also humerous to look at the difference between the sexes. Seen so many here on ATS. But let's look at what it means to TRULY be a
The strength of a man
The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
~~~~It's seen in the width of his arms that circle you.
The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
~~~~It's in the gentle words he whispers.
The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
~~~~It's how good a buddy he is with his kids.
The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
~~~~It's in how respected he is at home.
The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits.
~~~~It's in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn't in the hair on his chest.
~~~~It's in his Heart...that lies within his chest.
The strength of a man isn't how many women he's loved.
~~~~It's in how he can be true to one woman.
The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
~~~~It's in the burdens he can carry.
Stand tall, be kind, treat your mate and children with the love, respect and kindness they deserve in life. Not only for them but for you as well.
Be a REAL Man!
