My (Realistic) Perfect Man Day

Big Dan's RamblingsI was listening to an interesting conversation on my way into work the other day. One of the DJs was checking out the site BroBible.com and came across this article about a Man’s Perfect Day. It sparked a conversation amongst the hosts of the show as to what their Perfect Man Day would be. I found the conversation interesting and decided to check out the article. It was amusing to say the least. I’m not going to argue the author’s ideal day – it involves golf, fishing, great food and multiple sexual escapades (some with celebrities). It sounds downright perfect.

But it’s not realistic. I mean, honestly, if you think that an average Joe like you and I have any chance of having a naked Scarlett Johannson give us a massage on a private jet ride back from a fishing trip in the Bahamas after playing Augusta earlier in the morning, you’re crazy – I mean, really, do you know how much a private flight costs (that was sarcasm folks, look it up!)?

Regardless, this whole conversation got me thinking about what a realistic Perfect Man Day would consist of – who would I spend it with and what would I do? After some careful thought, I realized that I could honestly put together two Perfect Man Days – one in the summer and one in the winter – and neither one would necessarily trump the other.

Anyone who knows me is keenly aware that my passions tend to revolve around going fast sideways. Give me a board of any kind and I’m generally a happy guy. With that thought in mind, here are my ideas of a Perfect Man Day: Read more of this post

MA Here We Come

Well, it was my Mom’s B-Day yesterday and it’s been about a month since we saw them, so we’re heading up to MA this weekend to see them. Ris’ parents will be in Newport, RI (a short drive from my folks’ house), so it looks like the whole gang will get together (as Courtney will be with Mike and Fredda and Alyssa & Z are coming down from VT as well). Sat AM is golf for the boys and then everyone’s off to Newport for dinner. Hopefully the weather holds out for us. It’s not looking good so far:

  • Today: Sunshine along with a few clouds. High 84F. Winds SSW at 10 to 15 mph.
  • Tonight: Partly cloudy this evening, then becoming cloudy after midnight. Low 64F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.
  • Tomorrow: Overcast with showers at times. High around 75F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50%.
  • Tomorrow night: Considerable cloudiness with occasional rain showers. Low around 60F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

Weather.com has been know to be wrong in the past though…we will see. Like I said though, I am looking forward to golfing. Maybe I’ll do some fishing with my Dad if the weather is less than stellar. That’s always good for a laugh as I’m better at catching trees and other assorted crap than I am in catching fish 🙂
