Christmas list 2008
It’s no myth that men avoid any conversation or interaction that would wake up the emotional teddy bear inside them. This is especially true when people around are other men pretending to be as ice cold and unemotional as a frozen fish stick.
Unlike women we don’t carry out cute little gestures like giving our homeboy, main man or best mate a basket of cinnamon flavoured croissants with a jar of Hartley's Best Strawberry Jam. When was the last time a fellow man surprised you with a can of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream when you’re at home battling a cold? Yes ice cream might be last best thing to eat when sick but the flavour does keep you happy. It’s time be men break out of our nut shell and show some love and appreciation to our dearest male comrade.
