The Man Cold

the-man-cold

Guess what?! Yesterday my husband woke up with a cold. Not just any cold though, a MAN COLD.

What’s the difference between a cold and a man cold you ask? Well let me tell you.

A cold is what we normally know as a stuffy/runny nose, cough, a few aches.

A man cold is all that plus a whiny, grown man who can’t quite grasp why he feels so awful. He feels like he’s dying and the world is coming to an end because he feels so terrible.

A man cold isn’t fun, especially for wives. You’d think the man was on his death-bed or suffering a horrific illness. Nope just a cold. But, a man cold because you know, men can be such babies.

Would You Still Get Married If You Saw Yourselves As Senior Citizens?

A twenty-something couple took that challenge for The Cut’s “100 Years of Beauty” series, letting a makeup and prosthetics team age them into their 50s, then their 70s and finally their 90s. The makeup work is pretty over-the-top, turning the duo into a convincing pair of senior citizens. But what begins as a simple experiment turns into an emotional rollercoaster with each transformation as the couple contemplates how they will remember their marriage in the coming decades. What amazed me is he always thought she looked good. A little teary over that. 🙂
