My Man Weekend
Since my lovely wife and wonderful children are still away until Monday I have been spending the weekend doing typical "manly things." Friday after work I went for a motorcycle ride with a couple of my co-workers.
After I rode home I went out for a good steak dinner with my father. Just the two of us.
Then I went to a friend of mine's house to play a couple rounds of Texas hold-em. There were 14 of us guys and everyone had a great time. I actually got knocked out with the hand shown above. How do you get knocked out with pocket aces? I couldn't believe it either.
Saturday morning I went out for another ride and had a philly cheesesteak with mushrooms and a chocolate shake.
Saturday night I had to make a decision between a rodeo or a truck and tractor pull. A friend of mine was in a little event where 3 guys compete by the 1st guy holding a cow still (that would have been my part), the 2nd guy attempting to put a saddle on the cow, and the 3rd guy trying to ride the saddled cow to the end of the arena. The winners get $200. It definitely sounded like fun to me but being a bit of a gearhead I opted for the blaring sound of excessive horsepower being unbridled. I LOVE how that sounds and feels!!! Some people do things like these to "be a man." I do them only as a way to celebrate being a man with other men. All in all this celebration was good for my man-soul.
