Now that I have all this extra time on my hands, I decided to make good use of it. I randomly starting viewing profiles. I want to spread my blogger wings, and hopefully make some new friends. I did a search for all bloggers in my state. So this research is limited only to the Tennessee men. To be honest, I am such a homebody that it is difficult for me to make new friends. I rely mostly on my many family members.
Unfortunately, they seem to have their own lives going on. I am looking at profiles of men and women. Women list such interests as writing, sewing, literature, exercise, you know, stuff like that. I discovered something appalling about the men bloggers. They list beer as an interest. I am not kidding. Look for yourself. BEER. B-E-E-R. Fellas, I hate to tell you this, beer is NOT an interest. It is a beverage. A vile and disgusting beverage at that. How can you list that as an interest? Do you sit on your couch and watch the beer can to see what it will do? Do you take long moonlit walks at night with your beer? Maybe you share quiet conversations together. Do you tell the beer all your hopes and dreams? I confess that I love an icy cold glass of Coke. But I can't fathom listing a beverage as an interest. One blogger wanted it to be known that his top interest is beer.
I know I can't speak for all women, but surely some would agree with me that beer is not an interest. I am not hating on beer drinkers. I have had beer before myself. I think it tastes like pee personally. Well, not that I have first hand knowledge of what pee tastes like, that's just what I think of. Pee. With carbonation.
I say this only to help you. I don't think there are any men who are bloggers who read my blog. If by chance, one of you happens upon this here blog, please take my kindly given advice. If you drink beer that is fine and it's your business. Just please, please, don't list it as an interest. This is what it looks like:
Favorite Music: blah, blah, blah
Favorite Books: blah, blah, blah
Interests: hunting, beer, fishing, football.
See, that just doesn't even look right I tell you.
I also found a surprising number of men who list video games as an interest. I am going not to go off on a tirade about that. To each his own I always say. It just surprised me that men my age and older still love video games. Nothing wrong with that. Just a little surprising...........
