The secret life of men

February 19th, 2009

I don’t have anything to wear.
Does this make me look fat?
You hurt my feelings.
I hate my hair.
Does my breath smell?
Does waxing hurt?
My boss doesn’t like me.
I’m beginning to look like my dad.
It’s my natural color.
I borrowed your moisturizer.

The secret life of men is the secret life of us all. So there are no secrets.
Now, can you keep it a secret?


  1. Hooray. I’ve been ridiculing the notion that we are different species for years.

    There is no them and us, we are all the same and we are all different.

  6. My dad couldn’t, my husband couldn’t, but my son has told me many of those secrets. Go figure.

  7. Karen, I don’t know how long you spend on your blog posts, whittling them down to perfect concise little beautiful pearls of … gah … perfection … but I will endeavor to try harder to use less words to say more, everything …

  8. Brandy, I don’t even spend a minute. When you open your eyes, you see that everything, as you know by now, is perfect as it is. All I have to do is say it.

    Still, I thank you for noticing.
