Why do men die first?

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

This is a question that has gone unanswered for centuries, but, now we know...

If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race... you're a male chauvinist.
If you stay home and do the housework... you're a pansy.

If you work too hard... there's never any time for her.
If you don't work enough... you're a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay... this is exploitation.
If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay... you should get off your lazy behind and find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her... that is favoritism.
If she gets a job ahead of you... it's equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks... it's sexual harassment.
If you keep quiet... it's male indifference.

If you cry ... you're a wimp.
If you don't... you're insensitive.

If you appreciate the female form and frilly're a pervert.
If you don't... you're gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in're sexist.
If you don't ... you're unromantic.

If you try to keep yourself in shape... you're vain.
If you don't... you're a slob.

If she has a headache... she's tired.
If you have a headache... you don't love her anymore.

If you want it too often... you're oversexed.
If you don't... there must be someone else.

Bottom Line... Men die first because they want to.

    No joking Russell38 - in my family us girls learned how to change the oil and filter. And my brothers learned how to cook and do laundry... So when I got married, my husbsnd had always wanted to learn to cook, especially as he realized (to himself) that after he graduated from college, he wanted to get a job far enough away from his parents to try to cut the apron strings. He was a bachelor most of 15 years or so before we married, and had the laundry, house cleaning, and very very rudementary cooking skills (put food in microwave oven, turn it on. Try to stop before the smoke detector goes off.).

When we were pregnant, he took our birthing coach's suggestions to heart and asked me to teach him how to cook!! I did, and he learned about sauté baking roasting steaming frying, about making gravy, making quick breads, baking cakes, chopping of veggies in various size configurations like julienne chop dice cut chunk grate etcetcetc (plus he liked my "Joy of Cooking" and my Illustrated Techniques of Cooking book to fill in the gaps. He really found himself enjoying the "programmable" aspects of cooking - it reminded him of some of the same thinking processes he uses in his career as a computer programmer. Kinda made his mom mad that I taught him to cook, but in the end, she was blessed to be able to enjoy her son cooking meals for her in her last few years of life.

So yea... I believe it's to the guys' advantage to learn as much as they can about the "wifey" types of skills... It's easier to work together as a team, it prolongs life for both spouses... It's just good!!

    If men die first, their spouse can live off his pension ( and theirs ). If women die first, who does all the housework?? lol.

Men are helpless, but it is changing. My Mom taught me to cook, and do laundry. Sewing too, but I find it easier to just buy new clothes. My Dad bitched the whole time, saying " You'll turn them into girls! ". When my Mom died, I had to teach my Dad how to do laundry.
