I am a Man!

I am a man

Today I did the manly-est thing ever known!

No one has ever come close to being as manly as I have upon this day in the entire history of world. Early cave men who sat around their newly discovered ‘fire’ while eating raw meat from the bones of their prey used to tell each other stories about the day they might be even half as manly as this. Throughout the whole of history great men have tried to make their name known through great deeds to reach this level of manly-ness. However, all of their amazing achievements pale in comparison to the epic story I am about to tell you. It is a story that will be told for years to come. It is a story that men will tell other men down pub before they look bitterly into their pint glasses and realize how empty their lives are. It is the kind of story that will make women swoon, men cry and inspire the children of tomorrow for generations to come. There will be statues made, songs sung and films filmed. It is a story that will be remembered forever!

Today I returned a faulty item to the DIY store and put some shelves up for my wife! I am a man!

    Aledys – That’s what I keep on telling her :p

    Rob – Well… if you look at them slightly sideways they are.

    I can feel the testosterone from here!

  4. Aledys Ver says:

    Just now I am green with envy – your wife is some lucky girl to have such a manly man as her “echtgenoot” :D

    Dude! We need more manly detail! Use of powertools, measuring equipment, etc! Any life-threatening wounds (splinter in finger) sustained? Give us more!

  6. kiks says:

    That story is so laden with testosterone I just started ovulating.

  7. All I can say is “Grunt! Grunt!” with a tone of admiration …

  8. Invader Stu says:

    Alsion – Sorry. I should stop leaving that stuff laying around.

    Gez – There was indeed a hurt finger and several small cuts. I also got paint on my hands.

    Kiks – I should have warned you that the testosterone of this story is so strong that every lady who has read this is now pregnant… also the men.

    Unexpected Traveller – Grunt!

    French Bean – Wellll… there might have been a little bit of Ikea

    Wezz6400 – Thank you. A stern handshake and a gentle nod to you to my fine fellow.

    I was wondering when we would see your comeback, and what a great comeback it is! I will now grant you the honor of the most menly gesture of them all: a stern handshake and a gentle nod.

    Welcome back.Not only a hunter gatherer but a fixer of shelves as well. Well done, I am so proud.

  13. Anneke says:

    Oh thou manliest of men! My heart aches in bitter jalousy! I wish I had such a manly man at my disposal to put up shelves.

  14. Keith says:

    What happened to my comment? I put it up yesterday and it disappeared!

  15. Invader Stu says:

    Dragonlady – Thank you :)

    Anneke – Ikea is a good place to find such a man.

    Keith – I’m not sure. I never saw one. Did you see it here after you posted it?

  16. Keith says:

    No, I didn’t see it appear, I just assumed that you had “Comment Moderation” enabled and it would magically appear later.

    Either that or it appeared sometime in the past . . . . . .

    Anyway, it wasn’t important, just my usual drivel.

  17. VallyP says:

    Words fail me…..:)

  18. Anneke says:

    I shall stake out at the local Ikea and bag myself a man! :P

  19. Invader Stu says:

    Keith – Or it will appear sometime in the future. This is all part of your mind bending time travel isn’t it.

    VallyP – It’s ok. My manly-ness has that affect on women.

    Anneke – I wish you luck on your search.
