ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach,
for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have
no idea what mauve is.

I love this one!!

This guy is single, I take it. And, probably plans on staying that way for a LONG LONG time.

I've seen this particular group of rules several times. But each time I read it, there are some of those rules I can really identify with, such as number 1.

And really, I'm considered a sensitive guy. Even my wife agrees to that.
