Motherly advice from a Father

One of the crucial and most embarrassing conversations to have with your daughter is to tell her about boyfriends.  One has to be sure to give her advice, otherwise she will learn on her own and make some pretty stupid mistakes.  This conversation is necessarily short as men are notoriously poor at giving advice to women and father-to-daughter advice fares no better.  But do be careful.  Boundaries must be maintained so as not to intrude too much into her privacy or worse, to show her how you were a cad in your years as a boyfriend.

So here it is: a daughter should have three boyfriends at all times.
  • Boyfriend No. 1 is for sociability.  This is the guy you hang out with.  He is the one who you talk to, who takes you shopping and is your best friend.
  • Boyfriend No. 2 is the wallet.  He is the one to call when you are spending big bucks on trips or expensive purchases.
  • Boyfriend No. 3 is for the bedroom.  This is self explanatory.  Invoke boundary rules and tell her to call her mom.
Advise her that most guys only fit one trait, hence the three-boyfriend rule and it is extremely rare to find all three traits in one man.  If she finds two of the three traits in one man, then marry him.  If she gets lucky and find all three traits in one man, then get on her knees every day and thank God for His extreme kindness.

There are other traits such as a Fixer to make lots of repairs around the house but don’t bother to look for those.  That is what her brother is for, call him.

Saw an on-line dating stat: men with high incomes get more interest from women regardless of their looks. The Wallet BF wins!

I should write a post on, "My Trophy Millionaire Husband." hahaha

Good advise!
I always said women should marry a gay man and a straight man. Gay is for shopping and hanging with, and the other for the bedroom lol
So this was close ;)

Yeah, great advice but you left out one point. Tell your daughter to never marry a man who has never lived on his own.

A man who has lived on his own, away from his mother, will learn to cook, clean, and do laundry and your daughter will not have to teach him this.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.
