After overhearing that I put “product” in my hair yesterday, one of our sales guys told me that means I’m not a “real man.”
Then he backed up his claim with this email:

Subject: You = not a real man
If you google “things a real man never does” you get this list. Proof you’re not a real man.
1. Wear a pre-tied bowtie.
2. Drink Malibu coconut rum.
3. Buy bright-colored pants.
5. Put product in his hair.
6. Write with a cheap ballpoint pen.
7. Forget his wristwatch.
8. Walk out on a play.
9. Own a cat.
10. Finish his food before everyone else.
We thought that was a pretty lame list. At least I hope so, because I do many of the things on that list.
So Friday morning we set out to discover what REALLY defines a “real man.”
Terra says a real man is “willing to do ‘”girlie’ stuff with a daughter .”
Vicki says “a real man is secure and confident enough in himself to show tenderness.”
And Neil says, “a real man uses a hand razor to shave, not an electric razor.” (Uh oh. Once again, I’m failing the man test.)
