5 MANLY THINGS I DID THIS WEEKEND

My wife was out with her girlfriend last Saturday (thank God for GIRL’S NIGHT so I can get a BREAK FROM ALL THAT DAMN NAGGING!), so you know what that means: GUY’S NIGHT!

1. LIFT WEIGHTS

Gotta get swole, brah. It was leg day. Squats. Lunges. Leg curls. Protein.

2. PLAY DRUMS

I actually did this twice. Once was in between sets while I was lifting.

3. EAT A BLT FOR DINNER WHILE WATCHING THE GODFATHER

The BLT was good. The Godfather was better.

4. GO OUT DRINKING WITH GRAHAM

GUY’S NIGHT OUT!

5. NEGOTIATE A FAIR WAGE WITHOUT FEAR OF REPRISAL

That was pretty cool. Unlike many women, who find their professional credentials second-guessed, and experience all sort of gaslighting about the value of their career(/life) experience, I was able to tell my prospective employer how much I’ve been able to command for my work and negotiate and I didn’t have to worry about any of that other shit!

Oh, and I’m probably going to get paid just about 20 percent more than a woman with comparable experience. AWESOME, BRO!
