Why I feel like such a man today

A utility truck was stuck in the mud on a snowy hill. It had a big boom lift on a trailer. The reason I feel so manly was that I got in my truck Clyde, put it in 4wd low/compound gear and pulled this utility truck with it's trailer out of the mud and up the hill.

The thing is that I have no idea why this makes me feel manly. My truck did all the work.

What stupid things make you feel manly? Even the women can feel manly. All chime in!

I feel manly when I grope a woman's ass. Oh wait, I just feel like an asshole. Then again, what's the difference ;)

Feeling manly ain't stupid at all. It is an essential part of the male existance.
I do my best to perform a manly act as often as possible (being gentalMANLY is also a part of this) My most recent manly act would have to be when I changed the tires on my van in the middle of a snowstorm so my wife could get to work safely.

I strutted all damn day long!

Opening jars for my wife. I'm not sure if she really needs my help, but it still feels good when someone says "I can't open this", and you're able to twist it off as easy as breaking a kitten's neck.

Things that make me feel manly:

1) Building furniture all by myself.

I think that's it.

I feel manly whenever I use a drill or any other power tools to fix something on my own...and it actually works! Also felt pretty manly when I diagnosed my friend's car problem with saying, "Hmmm. Sounds like the starter rather than the battery" (whatever that means) and was right!!!!

What makes you feel all girlie?

I used to have to adjust the carburator thingie on my car whenever I would put gas in it in order to get it to start. Made me feel right manly, doing that at the gas station in front of all those capable men! So what does make you feel girlie?!! leigh

one time I had a big decision to make concerning a job... I took my manly girl-self to the home depot and built two seven-foot bookshelves!!

I rewired an oven once and it worked after that. I don't know about MANLY, per se, but dang did I feel clever.

I feel pretty macho when I get a big commission and make a big wad of cash, like I did yesterday. Husband watched the kids while I painted, so at night, I said, "why don't you go out and see a movie, you've had a hard day." Then I patted him on the head and sent him on his way.

I wish he would consider watching the kids "hard work" when I did it!

Meggypoo~ It takes one to know one;)

NYD~ Ah, changing the tire for the lady. Classic!

Vera~ AC or DC?

Jay~ I always knew you had it in you.

Christielli~ Have you ever tried spitting and grabbing your crotch in public?

O-Girl~ Watching Golden Girls reruns.

Leigh~ Having tea parties with all my stuffed animals.

Sun~ Because 6.5 foot shelves would have been insufficient for feeling manly:D

Karyn~ The thing you are not telling me is that your oven is now an atom smasher.

Julie~ you snuck that one in there before I could see it. Congrats on the commission!

I don't feel manly. I just feel my man!
