The History of Love

Five Things a Man don’t like in a Wife

– A Woman who will cuckold her Husband

– She who carries false Tales from one to another

– She who will be drunk before her Husband

– She who runs her Husband in Debt without his Knowledge

– She who pretends to love her Husband, but loves another better

And for the sake of equality….

Five Sorts of Husbands a Woman don’t like

– A quarrelsome Husband

– A jealous Husband

– A drunken Husband

– A Spendthrift

– One who is running after Whores, when he has a good honest Wife at home

So, gist is….

LADIES: No sleeping around, irresponsible boozing, or unnecessary shopping trips on your husband’s credit card.

GENTS: No sleeping around, irresponsible boozing, or unnecessary spending.

Hmmm. Maybe not so ridiculous after all.

5 Reasons You Should Never Settle

Excellent piece!

JamesMSama.com

As I sit here to write this article, I’m in our hotel room overlooking the beach. The waves sound so close you feel like you can put your hand out the window and touch them. My girlfriend is making coffee. Her tanned skin is accentuated even further by the stark white walls. The rays of sun are coming through the blinds signaling a new day has begun. Michael Bublé is permeating the room from my laptop speakers.

Next to me on the table is this month’s copy of Esquire, the cover of which is beckoning us with “84 Things A Man Should Do Before He Dies.” And I sit here thinking to myself – no matter how many failures I face or how hard life becomes, I refuse to settle.

Meeting Cliches

I cringe when I hear a meeting cliché but even I was impressed at the number of meeting clichés being thrown around at the five and a half hour work shop I attended last week.

Hopefully I’ve remembered at least half of them;

  1. We’re moving to the premier league in terms of service
  2. No more own goals
  3. Blue sky thinking
  4. Out of the box thinking
  5. Joined up thinking
  6. At the end of the day
  7. Going forward
  8. 110%
  9. Giving 100%
  10. Touch base
  11. Let’s take this off line
  12. A plus for all
  13. Raise the bar
  14. Run the numbers
  15. Win-win situation
  16. Game changing
  17. Move the goal post
  18. Shoot ourselves in the foot
  19. No holds barred
  20. Moving goal posts

An exhausting number of times I was forced to grind my teeth.

Lust…………………….

In the long mist between

The rolling and chewing

Losing of moments and senses

Breathing, sweating, murmurs

Is a quietness

Long low silences

Of secret longing

Taunt languid stretches

Harsh wanting

Reaching, guiding, pleading

Pulling down

Through openings

Of hushed pinks

 

Move faster

Softer, slower

Deeper

Move please
