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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSqAQ-RUFRA, 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!
