Times they are a changin’…

I was thinking some typical man thoughts this quiet Sunday morning and I thought, “Hey, I could share these thoughts with my family and friends and embarrass a lot of people.”

Keys, Pens and Watches

imageI used to be a fancy pen and watch guy. I had collectibles in each of these categories. As a matter of fact I had way too many of these items. I was having to do maintenance like buying new batteries, ink, and the like. But the pure sensual feeling of using a good pen or wearing a nice watch gave me a rush. Yeah, I know, I’m easy.

Do you know what? I have given up wearing a watch and carrying a pen. It happened about ten years ago or more. I felt naked, exposed to the world for a while and then never looked back. Now it is more common to see people with no watches. The cell phone has very neatly taken the place of the watch and for that matter the pen. I expect to see cash and keys disappear within ten years. Heck, I get into my house with an access code now—been doing that for over ten years now. I used to be able to do that with my Lincoln Navigator and look forward to that in the near future for all cars.

Skinny Pants

imageSuzy I used to make fun of people who might wear what has come to be known as skinny pants. We considered them in the same ilk as those who wore pants that rode about six inches too low. That low pant fashion, by the way, apparently came from the fellows in prison. No belts were allowed and apparently the lower the pants, the more ready you were for attention from your fellow inmates. Eww…

I am a skinny guy although not as skinny as I was in my youth. I am also tall at 6’4”. So finding pants to fit me was always a challenge. Even pants designed for regular or thin men were way too baggy for me. So I’d cinch up my belt which was not very comfortable. Last year I was unable to find the slim-cut Levi pants in stores. So I asked Suzy about skinny pants and she was skeptical.

But we went to the local mall and tried on a pair of Arizona skinny jeans. They were still baggy on me, but better than any others I’ve tried to date. So I bought three of them and started wearing them around home and with family. No one noticed. So I started wearing them at work—you guessed it, no one noticed. No more cinched belt for me; these pants fit fine. And they look baggier than they do on the models. What is next for me, pajama jeans? Oh, my!

Sans Bra

gwyneth-paltrow-74th-academy-awards-thumbI was watching CBS Sunday Morning with all the hoopla of the Academy awards and could help noticing a trend towards actresses going braless. This is a phenomenon that so many men would applaud for women of all shapes, types, and cultures. Who doesn’t like breasts? Even women luv them. Why should they be hidden behind layers of plastic, cloth and wire?

This is especially true for women with small or tiny breasts. Rather than getting a breast enhancement procedure that you might pay for in back pain the rest of your life, just play up your ChiveBurnBranatural small-breasted charm. Not all men are idiots about size. And, it has to be more comfortable, especially in warm climates to not have that friggin’ chest armor weighing you down.

You don’t have to be overtly sexual in the presentation either. Comfort is now in style. So even if you are brave enough to go braless, you don’t have to wear a shirt or top that shows anything you don’t want seen. Still, there is something to be said for a women who is confident enough to wear less at the right time. I’m just sayin…
