A Real Man Does Make Curtains
by M John

Home

My macho boyfriend recently gave me the most romantic
gift…curtains.  They’re romantic to me because of the deep thought
behind them and the preparation that went in to making them.  You
see, he came to my house late one night and observed that one could
in fact see through the blinds of my window.  I thought the blinds
were enough and no one could see in the window.  I was wrong…  He
was concerned.

So, he went to the fabric store and picked out fabric that matched
the colors in my bedroom.  He could of easily just BOUGHT the
curtains.  But no, he wanted to make them.  Of course, that was more
special to me.

This great guy spent a Friday night making my drapes.  Since he is
such a perfectionist, he first ironed the fabric.  I watched him
with needle and thread as he hemmed the final seams, his attempt at
domesticity couldn’t have been more sexy or romantic.  The show of
concern and the thought that went in to these drapes are always
remembered when I look up at them.  And, they turned out really
good!  Too good on that first morning…  I OVERSLEPT because I
wasn’t used to the amount of light cut off by my drapes.  So, that’s
my great boyfriend.  Though his friends aren’t supposed to know he
can actually sew.  It’s just not macho, right?

GENDER ITEMS

ZIPLOC BAGS – male, because they hold everything in, but you can
always see right through them.

SWISS ARMY KNIFE – male, because even though it appears useful for a
wide variety of work, it spends most of its time just opening
bottles.

KIDNEYS – female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs.

SHOE – male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue
hanging out.

COPIER – female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm
up.  Because it is an effective reproductive device when the right
buttons are pushed.  Because it can wreak havoc when the wrong
buttons are pushed.

TIRE – male, because it goes bald and often is over
inflated.

HOT AIR BALLOON – male, because to get it to go anywhere you have to
light a fire under it…  and, of course, there’s the hot air part.

SPONGES – female, because they are soft and squeezable and retain
water.

WEB PAGE – female, because it is always getting hit on.

SUBWAY – male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.

HOURGLASS – female, because over time, the weight shifts to the
bottom.

HAMMER – male, because it hasn’t evolved much over the last 5,000
years, but it’s handy to have around.

REMOTE CONTROL – female…  Ha!  You thought I’d say male.  But
consider it gives a man pleasure, he’d be lost without it, and while
he doesn’t always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.
