A Pile of Dog Bones

“In each of us two natures are at war… the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, but one of them must conquer. In our own hands lies the power to choose. What we want most to be we are.” – Dr. Henry Jekyll

1. Men are NOT mind readers.1. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.
1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.
1. Shopping is NOT a sport.And no, we are never going to think of it that way.
1. Crying is blackmail.
1. Ask for what you want.Let us be clear on this one:Subtle hints do not work!Strong hints do not work!Obvious hints do not work!Just say it!
1. Yes, and No are perfectly Acceptable answers to almost every question.
1. Come to us with a problem only If you want help solving it. That'swhatwe do.Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Thank you for reading this.Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

Now see… it’s really pretty funny… except for the last line… see… cause I sleep on a damn futon every night. I don’t have a bed, or a room of my own at night… I crash at my mom’s. Now… the really crazy part is I own a house. My house unfortunately is 2.5 hours away from me… and my job remains here in NYC. Hence one more reason I need to break the block… I need my own place.
