Who Da' (Wo)Man?

The other day, a coworker asked me that question that eventually rolls of the tongue of every single uninformed, but oh-so curious, heterosexual male.

"I don't mean to be rude or anything," he queried, "but which one of you is the woman in your relationship?"


My response was that neither one of us is 'the woman.' We're both gay men, for Pete's sake. We both have penises. Neither one of us has a vagina. If either one of us wanted to be in a relationship with a woman, then we certainly wouldn't be gay men. Duh!

Another nosy co-worker immediately disagreed with me and stated, very matter-of-factly, that I was the woman in the relationship.

"Bullshit!" I declared. "I'm the breadwinner in our family! I do all of the hard work! I clean the house. I do the laundry. I wash the dishes. All Mumi does is sit around on the couch all day in his underwear... watching TV... and um... scratching his, uh, balls..."

Whoa, hold on there now... Wait a minute... What do you know? Maybe I am the woman in this relationship.

Huh. Go figure!

I am woman, hear me roar!

Bicycling Can Be Dangerous!

I was at work on Sunday night when I got the following text message from Mumi...

"Just got back from a bike ride. I had a little accident. I ran over a groundhog."

Groundhog Day

Um, what?!?

Being the ever caring husband that I am, I immediately texted him back and asked him if the groundhog was okay. The groundhog had fled the accident scene without waitng for the authorities to arrive though, so we can't be sure if he ultimately survived or not.

Mumi, on the other hand, didn't fare quite as well...

After rolling over the groundhog, Mumi jammed on the brakes, went over the handlebars and hit the asphalt. He must have caught his ankle on the pedal somehow because it was pretty torn up and bleeding. He had a few scrapes here and there too, but I think he's very lucky that he wasn't hurt even more. He's pretty sore, but he'll be better before he gets married! (We can do that in California now!)

In Other Dangerous Bicycling News...

I was out on the trail the other day pedaling along, and I saw Mumi traveling towards me from the opposite direction. Normally, when we see each other on the trail, we smile and wave and slap hands and that's about it. This time though, Mumi stopped me. He told me that he had just been attacked by a bird.

Um, what?!?

Yep, I had heard him correctly. He told me all about how a bird had just swooped down from a tree and pecked him on the helmet. Of course, being the skeptic that I am, I didn't believe him right away.

I found out that he was telling the truth a little further down the trail though when, as I was passing under a tree, I felt a little thud against the back of my bike helmet. I turned around and caught a glimpse of a Red-Winged Blackbird swooping down to attack me!

Attack Bird

Of course I thought that it was all very hilarious, so I just had to stop and rest on a nearby bench and watch a couple of strangers bike by and get attacked too. I only wish that I had taken my camera with me!

Bicycling can be very dangerous!

Queer Eye For The Bald Monkey

Carson Kressley
Has this man ever hit on your boyfriend? He hit on mine. That's right. Carson Kressley put the moves on the Bald Monkey! Carson was all like, "Wow! You're hot! I'm staying at the Best Western in Rockville tonight. Why don't you stop by after the show."

Fred Schneider
How about this man? Has he ever hit on your boyfriend? Well, he hit on mine! Fred Schneider gave the googley eyes to my Bald Monkey all night long! Fred was all like undressing Mumi with his eyes and blowing little kisses Mumi's way. Don't deny it Fred Schneider! I know you were!!

Mumi, Cyndi Lauper & Bubala
Has this lady ever hit on you and your boyfriend? Yeah, I didn't think so. She didn't hit on us either. In fact, she seemed a little annoyed at having to pose for this photo with us in the first place even though we paid several hundred dollars for the opportunity to meet her. That's why I don't really like meeting famous people for the most part. It kind of ruins it for me most of the time when I discover that they're not all that much like the public persona they try to portray. Oh well, live and learn I suppose.
