Reason #452 "Why I need a good chick"

You see...I'm what you might call a "guy's guy". I wear flannel with pride, I work a construction job, I wear a hard hat and work boots, I drink my beer from a can and my liqour straight, I don't call my Momma as much as I should, I forget Birthday's and Anniversary's, I hate shopping, and I HATE SHOPPING! I get "Man points" for merely waking up in the morning. (Did I mention that I "hate shopping"? Just checking...)

You'll never guess what I went and subjected myself to this evening...Yup, shopping. Now I realize that I'm a week early starting this, but I wanted to get a jump on things this year. Last year things were a bit hectic, so I wanted to take a little pressure off this season. I went to one store and got items for 70% of the people on my list. It took me nearly an hour and a half, and it was all a complete nightmare. Crowds, holiday cheer, holiday angst, bad parking, and scrounging through bargain bins. I got some gifts that I'm certain my friends and family will like, and they fricken better after all I had to put myself through.

At any rate...I need to find me somebody who actually enjoys doing this kind of thing. I'm certain that there's someone out there that I can fob this crap off on get to help me with these chores...and actually enjoy it. In the meantime, I'll resign myself to watching Sleepy Hollow...just to get back into the "Holiday Spirit".

Eh, you're out of luck. I married the only woman that likes doing all that stuff and will not only put up with typical male crap, but also enjoys it.
