According to reporting in today’s New York Times, men looking for short-term thrills with a woman pay more attention to her figure than to her face, and men looking for long-term commitment pay more attention to face than figure.
Does this constitute news? Guys looking for a roll in the hay valuing wiggle more than wink?
More surprising, the study concludes that women valued face and body equally in their decision-making . What? Mr. Henry would have assumed women to have more sense than that.
In the case of Angie Dickinson, for example, Mr. Henry says “yes” to both questions.
Mr. Henry believes the more interesting question is at what point in a boy’s life he stops focusing on breasts and starts paying closer attention to legs and where they come from.
The Playboy Man’s obsession with bazoongas is decidedly, incontestably infantile.
Grow up, dude.
Marry for conversation, not for sex, they say. Why? Because the sex becomes an extension of the conversation, and vice versa. It’s a lifelong path leading to the best of both.
Into Manhattan’s pre-dawn darkness – heavy weather accelerating across the Hudson –Mr. Henry remains steadfast in purpose. Each morning unflinchingly he leads his noble hound Pepper into Riverside park for her hour-long, off-leash walk. Storms do not deter him. Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor gloom of night will stay him from the swift completion of his appointed rounds.
On a westward descent to the water’s edge, cold wind piercing his vitals, what does Mr. Henry wear to protect himself against a savage onslaught from wildest New Jersey?
In past years he layered up with wool or fleece under a windbreaker. With today’s choices of fabrics, layering still remains the best strategy, but wool and fleece can be bulky and bunchy. Mr. Henry wants maximum protection without dressing like the Michelin Man.
Patagonia’s eminently practical “nano puff” is genuinely innovative. It is both warmer and lighter than last year’s puff. The “hoody” model, ideal for any technical expedition, keeps head and neck warm without the necessity of a scarf.
Congratulations to Jeff the Baptist who, well, correctly guessed the identity of Monday’s Man of Mystery.
Curiously enough, if you Google Vice-President Joe Biden, the same image of Reagan as a young lifeguard pops up. Mistakes like these undermine one’s faith in the reliability of internet information.
