It is now a day or two after Christmas and things are a little cool between “your main squeeze” and you. In fact, she is down right “Pissed”. Now, why do you think that is?
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out, you probably screwed up on her gift. Yo’ Dude. Were you listening? Didn’t you catch her hints? How many times did she “uh and ah” over a piece of jewelry, blouse, pair of shoes or something else you would rather take table salt in the eye, than be caught buying.
If you missed her signals and she did not miss yours, you are an ignoramus. If not an ignoramus, then at least an idiot.
How could you not pay attention to the woman you are suppose to be in LOVE with. Did you forget she was not your pet but, is in fact your wife or significant other. Well, you are in the DOG HOUSE big time.
Don’t feel alone – you are not. Many of us men are in there with you. It seems most of us can not get all the desired gifts right. In fact, we are usually off the mark some of the time.
In a future post I will discuss ways to get out of the dog house and off the sofa. I myself have a special pillow and blanket just for the sofa which I will be using for a while. I too missed the mark this Christmas. “Baby it’s cold outside.”

Judging by the calendar, V-DAY has passed and, if you are reading this, you are still among the living. But, a question must be asked; “Did you make her happy on Valentine’s Day?”
If not, you still may have her birthday, Mother’s Day and Christmas to redeem yourself. That is, if she wants to keep you around. If this sounds a little harsh, it’s no accident. If you forgot the flowers, the candy or something else that would make her smile, your “man cave” is now “your Dog House”, and you deserve it. Now let’s move on.
Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it has no shortage of holidays and it is a love month. Consider this, February 5th, was Super Bowl Sunday (football lovers’ day). February 12th was the Grammy Awards (entertainment lovers’ day). February 13th was World Radio Day, that speaks for itself. February 14 was a double, Valentine’s Day for the Sweet Hearts and International Condom Day (for the long haul romantics or Catch and Release Program).
February 20th will be Presidents Day. This is not just for the current President. February 21 is International Mother Language Day. You knew you were in trouble when she used you full name in any language.
February 22 is National Margarita Day (Love to Drink). February 26 is Academy Awards ( Another day for fake reality). And, February 28 is another double; Shrove Tuesday – Pancake Day and Mardi Gras (Love to party and eat). After all the eating, drinking and sex, you may want to try recovering from all this fun with Click Here!
So you see, February is not only usually cold but, it offers a few chances to eat too much, use condoms, be patriotic and party afterwards like it never happened. Look out March, here we come.
Guys we are now down to 2, only 2 days till Christmas. How are you going to explain not giving your significant other, no matter if it’s your wife or girlfriend that gift she has repeatedly said she liked, loved or wanted?
Keep in mind, it may be out of your budget or available funds, you must really give this some serious thought and (then) take action. Think about what she has said in the past year. Was there something she really liked? I mean did she repeat it more than twice? If so, you may want to get off your half dead butt and go find it. But, if it’s out of your reach, try thinking of something she has mentioned that could be a consolation gift and when she opens it, gently and carefully explain you couldn’t get her what she really wanted this year.
Do this with your most pitiful expression and be sincere. Women are more forgiving if you are honest; “I just didn’t have the money”. If she gets angry, she may dump you and you won’t have to get anything for her next Christmas.
But to avert that disaster, jewelry is almost always a good substitute. Make sure what you get her is just for her. Don’t go to the cheapest place on the corner, but do go shop where you can afford.
If you don’t know it by now, putting a smile on her face can get real expensive. By saying that, keep your cost within reason, but don’t forget. “It get really cold outside.”
