This was a hard day…

Yet another Manlaw post…

Looking back, I know I am the way I am, in many ways, by the way I was raised.  I always treat ladies as ladies.  Even the ones that are good friends and I flip crap to everyday, I will hold the door and tell them when they look nice.  I also make sure, even if they can do it, to offer to carry heavy stuff at work, or anywhere else.  It’s what guys do, its Manlaw.  In my travels this weekend, I saw a few breaches in Manlaw, and one classic example of adhering to it.

Anyone who read yesterdays post knows my Saturday was shot.  Working the winery is a blast, but it does tend to kill the day.  That meant everything that needed to get done this weekend, got done Sunday… Continue reading
