by Sherry Riter in Aging,Chuckle

I love fun and funny facts or truths.

I also love men. They are so different when compared to women.

No, really!

No, really! I’m being honest!

Men have so many unique qualities and attributes that make them interesting, perplexing and exciting.

So keep remembering what I’ve said as you read all about some adult truths. When you get to the last one that is about men – just smile.

{{{{hugssss}}}} to all the men! We DO love you!

Thanks. I needed that laugh. Just for your information, I always wash my hands after using the bathroom. (Really.)

Save early; save often!

The longer you hang onto something, the sooner you’ll need it after finally throwing it out. If you haven’t already tossed it, you will never find the “safe” place you chose to keep it. Also, after not finding what you were looking for and tossing what you needed it for, you will find it looking for something else.

You are so right Chris!!! It drives me nuts!

Ah Sherry you are so naive, #46, it wasn’t that we(men) actually needed the helmet we only starting wearing them to shut women up! Beside man generally are on guard down below, our heads not so much! When men fight the head is the target, cause it’s hard…..why do we need a helmet?
If you were a man you would understand, there’s nothing like the pain of being hit in the boys!lol
This also bring me to the question of who designed the Girl’s and Boy’s bicycle, they got it totally wrong!


9 Sherry Riter October 13, 2013 at 10:28 am

You are such a smarty pants Don!

Oh, I’m glad you didn’t say anything about a man’s heart because we already know where that is going to lead. LOL

Okay, I’ll hush now. 😛
