His name is Munson.

An insightful man who, amazingly, has no blog of his own yet but shares his wisdom in the blogs of others. This is one. One of his many wise observations is too damn brilliant not to share.

For a woman, having a relationship with a man is like dancing with a hippopotamus:

1) you’re going to get your feet and toes smashed;
2) the hippopotamus will never learn to do it very well; and
3) at no time will the hippopotamus have the slightest idea what the fuck is going on.

But if you give him his bale of hay, i.e., recognition as I’ve described, plus affection, sex, love, food (Dr. Laura says men come down to sex and food; that’s sexist and degrading but absolutely true, goddamnit!), he’ll make a useful, and indeed, rewarding companion.

I have worked over drafts of his addresses to his “young flock” (his term) and I have improved them considerably if I do say so myself. I like and admire Tom, but I do wish he’d learn to spell his last name correctly.

    BTW I have proposed to Susan over at hookingupsmart that I do aa advice column, “Dancing with the Hippopotamus-An Old Man’s Advice to Young Women”. teh Ptrivate man can attest I have much useful information t impart.
