MANopause, #415


We went out to dinner with good friends last night, and during the dinner, our friend was sweating.  As he dabbed his face with the restaurant cloth napkin, he chuckled, “Must be that MANopause again!”  MANopause!!!!!!!!!!   OMG!  This set me off into a fit of laughter with a gazillion thoughts of male hormonal craziness taking over!  The idea is just so absurd and hilarious!

Man, oh, MANopause……….do I have ideas to describe it.  Here is what I am imagining to be the consistent thoughts running through a MANopause man’s head:

  — “Must. Drive. Sports car.  FAST!!!!”

–” Women should only have blonde hair and big boobs and remain 21-years-old forever.”

–“If all else fails, go hide out in the man cave filled with weights, music, cigars, video games and posters of young blonde girls with big boobs.”

–“Must ignite mojo by flexing and staring in the mirror at self.”

Okay, okay…I know I am stereotyping big time, but I just can’t help it!  As women, we are stereotyped all the time.  Is it so criminal to think that a male mid-life crisis could really be some sort of MANopause?  It’s just a thought, and I will admit, a rather amusing one, but maybe there is a grain of truth to it, n’est pas?  If women go through menopause, wouldn’t it seem valid that men could go through a hormonal shift, too?  I’m just saying!

So, my song of the day is one that will embrace MANopause…not run from it.  I give you all “Little Red Corvette” today by Prince.  Here’s the Youtube link:, because if you can’t really own one….at least you can listen to a song about one.  Enjoy, MANopausers!  Here’s a little love and sympathy for you all!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
