Men Are Just Happier People-- What do you expect from such simple creatures?
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 never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. 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. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the 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. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. 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 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier!

  1. Cute! I was out in the kitchen a little while ago making a raisin pie for my father-in-law and was thinking about you! Was in need of your Friday smiles! ;)

    hugs to you, my friend.

  2. This is too cute and way, way, way too accurate.

    You forgot about the part where a man can wear the same shirt as another man to an event and there is no rivalry, they become best friends!

    thanks for the laugh.

  3. Oh my goodness! This was so funny. Very thought provoking. LOL! It does make sense now. Ha! Ha!
    Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  4. Hilarious! And how true! Also, when men get sick... everyone waits on them and pampers them!! :)

  5. Hmmm. No wonder I am looking way older than my hubby! I'm 90. He's early 40's...

    Have a great weekend sister Mary and thank you for the laugh!!! Love to you!

  6. This made me laugh out loud! Too cute...thank you for sharing it. Have a fabulous weekend. :)

  7. Oh gosh! this is so funny! Jen and I sit here in a room full of men and YES....these are all sooo true!

    Happy Friday Mary! Love you!

  8. Hi Saleslady371 -

    Thank you

    This was a hoot!

  9. Ha! Oh so true. I read on your sidebar that you were on a journey to keep rejoicing at all times. A worthy journey to be sure. It's amazing how our attitude changes when we're rejoicing.

  10. This is great!!! It's so funny because it's so true.
    Thank you!

  11. Hahaha...soooo true! They have it made! ;-)

  12. I love your new header! What a pile of smiles!!!

    I also appreciate the "man humor". They are such easy targets.


  13. Just wanted to let you know that I've mentioned you in my blog today (Jan. 25). ;)

  14. Haha! Mary, did you make that up? It's just hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!

  15. WOW, are you ever going to be missing having your family around after everyone being together for such a great visit! I am going to be praying for you, my friend.

    Hugs to you,

  16. Simple creatures, yes - but aren't they rather refreshing at times (when they're not annoying!!)

    One other thing - when they go out, "everything" they need fits into one wallet and/or pocket. Don't need to tell you about the "bottomless pit" that my purse is!!

    Thanks for the chuckle - GOD BLESS!

  17. Hilarious and soooo true!!

    Love your new header.... : ))))
