John at OPFOR shares some thoughts. I do love boys/men. I don’t want to join them or be one, but they/you crack me up.
I’m eternally grateful that this crap didn’t become fashionable until recently. I grew up in a neighborhood where there were 9 boys within 2 grades of me. We experimented with fireworks, conquered the woods behind our houses, built secret forts and bike ramps, explored the neighborhood sewer system (you heard me), and staged all day battles with self-fashioned weapons. Sometimes we passed the afternoon just knocking the shit out of each other with sticks. We wrestled, scuffled, tussled, boxed, and fought. That’s just the natural order of things.
And it’s fun?? LOL
