A fellow told me the other day that it took him 30 minutes to pick out a greeting card. I about laughed out loud.
Since then it occurred to me that the young men of today need a little eyeopening from a grandfather type like me. Now, I just came through the card season in my life. It started with my wifes birthday in January, then Valentines Day, and now Im staring down the muzzle of our 33rd anniversary . Its like maneuvering past Boardwalk, Parkplace and those green properties in Monopoly.
So if youre a wimp that cant seem to figure out his role, its this simple: Take out the trash, keep your mouth shut and leave the toilet seat down. But theres rules for card buying also:
1. Dont buy the first card you pick up (even if its the one you like the best) because it would mean you didnt care enough to choose the perfect one.
2. The fourth card isnt necessary, because we all know every card is a good one.
That leaves you with the second or third card. Just choose one and youre out of there in five minutes.
So man up guys, just because you dont live in Texas doesnt mean you dont have an obligation to act like real men.
