Don't Worry, Be Happy

As some of you may know I am trying to have a better outlook on life. Just trying to be grateful for what I have and enjoy life a little more. Well Mrs. Shife just sent me over a list that shows by just being a man I have plenty of reasons to be happy.

    Ha Ha!

    Women CAN be President...the only problem is that men are too ignorant to vote for a woman.

    I don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut or screw.

    My new shoes don't do any of those because I refuse to wear heels ever again.

    I have one mood all of the time: BITCHY.

    My phone conversations are short, too.

    Women can open their own jars...we just have to let you men THINK we need you.


  3. "You can open all your own jars."

    HA! So true.

  4. You are very lucky to have such a wise woman in your life.

  5. and don't you forget it....

  6. LMAO!!
    Yes, the blog has been restored. Blogger actually does have tech support after all.
    Nothing wrong with taking lunches by yourself. I've read a lot of good books that way or just enjoyed watching the world go by in peace and quiet. Ahhhh....

  7. that's an awesome post, too funny, man.

  8. All very true, and yet it still makes me feel good.
    Yes, it is good to be a man.

  9. awesome awesome !!!!

    the missus rocks !!!!

    so damn true !!!

  10. I just bang my jars hard on the floor and they usually losen up. As for the shoes, I plead the 5th.

  11. Very accurate list.

    The whole menstruating thing...oh man. I'm so happy to be a man.

  12. Being a man I have no problem with. The whole peeing outdoors thing has been good to me. Being a BROKE man is the thing that is starting to bother me.

  13. *sniff*
    All true.

    Say hi to the bassett hound for me. I thought of him over the weekend. Remember The Cuz's fat beagal? He's skinny now! Amazing what not feeding him 8 times a day will do for a dog.


  14. This list is only true if your boyfriend isn't a fag. (I'm implying my boyfriend's a fag) Uh-oh! Here he comes, hide me!

  15. Haha so what does it mean when I have opened jars for a guy or two before? ;) hehe nice list

  16. haha great list, your wife is a wise lady

  17. Your wife knows all that is wise.

  18. Well done Mrs! :-)

  19. I totally snarked at most of those...I mean, come on, it's 2006 already. And then I read the one about doing your nails with a pocketknife. That one really spoke to me. In the heart burn kind of way.

  20. All I can say is "Righty tighty, lefty loosey"

    And if a guy's not wearing a shirt, you bet your sweet bippy I'll be staring at his chest! :)

  21. I'm sending you happy non-worrying vibes.

  22. This is why in my next life, I'm coming back as a man. It's on big friggin PARTY!!!

  23. Women stare at my chest, it usually at eye level for them (but I do my fare share of staring back).

  24. I've got Bobby McFerrin in my head. Thanks.

    Knock, knock! Is anyone there?

  26. The lack of not having to sit to pee on this list bothers me.

    Also the ability to scratch ourselves wherever and whenever we damn well please is definitely a plus.
