Being a Man

Just as Hercules had to complete his labors in order to be at peace, there are certain tasks that must be completed by a guy in order for him to call himself a man. Many tasks involve the sacred symbol of manliness-- the automobile.

Change a flat - check
Jump start a dead battery - check
Change a dead battery in the rain and the dark with the manliest of flashlights, the Maglite, with only one wrench and a brand new DIEHARD 12 volt - CHECK

Mr. Pat M and I completed this last task successfully and in a timely manner with the raging Hackensack River at our backs and the raw, biting wind in our faces. God showered some mercy upon us by cutting back on the torrential rain that had been consuming the entire east coast all day leaving us only the shoe-suctioning mud to deal with. The sea was angry that day, my friends, but neither Pat nor I would back down from such a challenge.

Onto the next man challenge - Kidnapping a bear cub

Heed the Dub
