Joanne- Classic Dave Barry
Hi everyone, It's the 8th of the month and time to share another hilarious Dave Barry Classic. Today, Dave writes about opening a pickle jar. (yes, really!) "I found out from the Internet that when you get to be my age (old), you lose bone density and muscle mass. This alarmed me, because I never had any muscle mass to begin with. Men: You know how, when your wife can't open a pickle jar, she gives it to you, and you're supposed to smile in a manly patronizing way as you effortlessly twist it open? That's not what happens in our house. What happens is, after a grim struggle lasting several minutes, I wind up lying on the kitchen floor, exhausted and whimpering, while the pickle jar, unopened, laughs and flirts boldly with my wife. Sometimes it gives me a wedgie." Me again: OK, everyone, how "manly" is your man? Please leave a comment.
