Manliness....Not Really Sure

The husband called me the other day from work.

To ask me a question that he often calls to ask.

"We got anything going on this weekend?"

Which is man-code for: "I want to do something manly with my man friends, and I need your permission to grunt, scratch, and be manly freely."

Usually this question leads to fishing, hunting, poker, or golf....

I was NOT expecting what I heard next.

Me: Oh. You fishing?
Him: No.
Me: Golf?
Him: No. Um...I'm going to a pageant.

Say what, Mr. Testosterone?

(Okay..in the interest of honesty...he didn't actually call it a pageant. He called it by its manly name. But really....it's a pageant. Plain a simple.)

Yes.

The husband. In all of his burliness. Is going to a pageant.

To look at men who look like this:


And he and his man friend are then going to come home wishing that they looked like that.

Because he's going to a pageant.

It just doesn't get old.

No matter how many times I say it.

A pageant.

Dog gone. That's funny stuff.

You better be careful, he may be dreaming of joining that Pageant! He may have a problem though...you have to smile when they take your pucture:)

First, I learn that Packed House has mad gift-wrapping skillz and now I find out he likes to go to pageants?!

I never ceased to be amazed at how secure he is in his manhood. Props to K!

Ok, that IS funny that your hubs is going to a pageant!

That being said, I just threw up in my mouth a little looking at those pictures. Gross.

Why do guys think that's cool?

Gross! I can't stand when guys get to be where they look like they're skin's going to burst from the buldging muscles. I think I remember hearing that someone was flexing his bicep one time and his muscle burst inside his arm. Can we say ouch?? And gross?

But I agree with Tiffani, we must accept and support differences. Even gross ones.

I am sure that he just LOVES the spin you put on it, right? ;)But you speak the truth...PAGEANT! And a super nasty one at that.

Mocha Momma said...

HA! That is so funny. I remember watching that stuff on TV. I even had a book that a woman wrote to help women train & get in better shape. I did some of the exercises for a while. It's just funny...

I have an award for you, Amber. Come over and pick it up when you get a chance.

Elizabeth said...

Adrion would like to join him next time. He loves pageants!

(don't tell him I told you)

Michele said...

This is so funny!!!! My Dad (the alcoholic one I've blogged about, not my stepdad who I also refer to as Dad) use to compete in these pageants. No joke! I've been to a few of these things myself. Quite honestly, this is where I get my love for exercise.
