Now for my post question. Have you ever noticed men get better looking with age? Look at these guys and tell me I'm wrong.
Did you know... though we all have seven layers of skin...the man's layers are thicker, which prevents them from ageing a fast as a woman?
Is this really fair?
And then when they do age - LOOK AT THEM! They get more handsome?
Shouldn't we women be blessed with this same thick skin? I think God was playing favorites!
Why did the woman get stuck with it ALL? Why couldn't God have made it half and half...one month aunt Flow visit's me, and the next month she visits hubby...that would be fair...wouldn't it?
And why are we women the only ones who get stuck carrying a baby, and we have to do it for NINE MONTHS...even Squirrels have it better than us! Is there anything that carries a baby longer than a human woman?
So what's God got against us? Why'd he make us age faster, carry babies longer and we get stuck with aunt flow? Not only that, why don't guys get Cellulite? Why don't they get the wide hips?
And did you notice...guys get all the cool careers? And they get paid more.
What's God got against us girls?
Then when men do age...look at them -->
When they get wrinkles they look sexier, wiser and distinguished! BTW, me Irish neighbor, the one I told you about that brough me the Irish soil, looks very much like Sean (above) and he sounds very much like him too.
Anyway back to what I was saying....So I ask you...what's with that?
Even when a guy isn't "pretty boy" handsome...he's a "rugged" handsome!
We women...we're either beautiful or not...there's no in between...how come?
And what about hair...notice how good guys look with hair on their legs or on their upper lip...yet not us girls? Is that fair? God help the woman who walks around with that one dark hair on her chin!
And we can just forget about having hairy chest!
What about body heat? Ever notice how guys are always warmer than us...so if we're lost on a mountain top in the middle of a snow storm all their hair and body warmth will keep them alive while we women will be done in for...nice...thank you God.
Never see one of them having a bad hair day....
Guys just have all the luck!
