Man pride is a easily funny thing.
I don’t care how sensitive or evolved the two of us think the two of us are, we’re still stupid men.
Let’s just admit it. I do stuff in addition to feel ways that are totally foreign to my personality but completely fitting to my gender. The garage is a good example or this dynamic at work. When the two of us first obtained this house, I was so geeked up to have a various car garage. It was the first locale I had ever owned with state of the art Heating in addition to Air Conditioning in addition to a various car garage. I consistently wanted to be able to park the nice car in the garage in addition to then use the rest of the space for neatly storing other gear. I could hang bikes in addition to park grass component but still have my wife park her car in the garage. There was something so manly fantastic about having that picture in my head. Garage was guy world. And then, it wasn’t. Soon, there was so much other junk getting tossed in the garage that the fantastic car wouldn’t even fit. The junk stored in our garage was also full of VOC’s which just made the entire garage reek when mixed with athletic interests gear in addition to grassmower stuff. It was horrible in addition to I felt a odd sense of angst. No longer could I whip the garage door up in addition to leave it up with good guy pride. I was now such a wimp that I couldn’t even manage my own garage. The door stayed down out of shame that some other real guy might entirely see it. So, I slapped myself in addition to did something. My first step was to put in an exhaust vent so I can at least breathe while I attempt to right this ship.
