Women make wilk, big whop!

Home Alone

My wife is away for a few days, leaving me in temporary bachelor mode, fending for myself. I find I can’t avoid staying up late if I have no one to remind me, “You have work tomorrow.” That’s normal. What’s not normal, though, is that I continue to close and lock bathroom doors. Why? It’s not like anyone’s going to walk in on me.

Am I alone in this?

I revert back to college age eating habits when my wife isn't around to cook. Cheerios, Kraft Mac n Cheese, popcorn, and beer really can sustain a man for over a week. I've done it.

Everything above except the locking doors thing ... I don't do that.

And don't you just love the fact that you can have the TV on real loud without getting any hassle?

You're doing the right thing!

Trust me, this is a seemingly unusual but very good habit. Even if you absolutely believe no one will walk in on you, it's a good thing to close the door. What if there was an emergency and your wife bust through the door with her mother and they caught you at your worst unable to reach the door to close it! What if you forgot that you planned this and the cast of Trading Spaces ran in on you with TV cameras!! Better safe than filmed on the can!!

Ahhhh, the breakfast of champions. ;) Martha Stewart, eat your heart out. LoL Sounds like a decent basis for one hell of a The Man Show souffle recipe.

Funny this resurfaced, because I'm in Temporary Bachelor Mode™ myself right now. Unlike Ryan though, I don't care a wit about the bathroom doors.



What is this then?
