Living With The Good ‘Ol Boys

Living with ANYONE is difficult. Whether you reside with your bff, your significant other, or a stranger you met on Craig’s List, there will always be some pros and cons. Maybe your roomie is messy, bad at paying the bills, or brings home strangers at 2 in the morning. Hell, I lived with a guy who stored pee in Tupperware containers under his bed. In my defense, the only reason I lived with him is because I wasn’t aware of this behavior. I found the pee-stash after he moved out. Though inexplicable, that dude wasn’t – in fact – the worst roommate I ever had.

I’ve lived with both guy friends and girl friends and both sexes come with their own set of drama and hurdles. The great thing about living with dudes is that you get front-row seats into the psyche and world of the male brain.

While I realize every man and woman is an individual and deserves to be treated as such, there are certain patterns of behavior only people blessed with a scrotum exhibit.

Here are some realizations you have when cohabiting with the male species.

Time Out

You guys…


Since the news broke that classrooms are steadily getting rid of analog clocks (new splash: this has been happening for awhile), my Facebook page has been blowing up with people aghast that any school would implement such an atrocity on impressionable minds.

I get it… sort of. Learning how to read an old-timey clock isn’t exactly hard and it sort of exemplifies a society rooted in laziness.

HOWEVER… fading out things that don’t make much sense is not exactly new. That’s kind of the premise of a developing society. I’m sure the first time someone suggested we get rid of horse-and-buggy transportation, people lost their effing minds. Or when we phased out the typewriter or phone books or cocaine in Coca-Cola Products (although, anger over the last one probably had more to do with withdrawals than anything else).

It’s human nature to want to hold onto things we’re accustomed to. When things we like start to fade into obscurity, it’s kind of depressing. For example, I spent YEARS perfecting my cursive only to find that these days nobody can read it.

But the whole point of developments in society is to find ways to do things more efficiently. The analog clock is certainly not the most convenient option of “time-telling,” so it makes zero sense to spend time utilizing it.
