Dude Stuff You Need to Embrace

Listen, we all know that women are generally the rock stars of daily life. We can find things in the refrigerator even if there is something in front of whatever we’re looking for. We don’t have to call anyone to find out where the salad dressing is in the grocery store. And oh yeah, we’re capable of growing tiny humans. 

Still, occasionally we have to tip our hats to the testosterone in our lives. They sure do get some things right. 

The League
This show is about as much about fantasy football as the Grey’s Anatomy is actually about medicine. It’s not. You don’t have to know anything about Tom Brady, Eli Manning, or Tony Romo (did I just give away the fact that I only know players who are good looking?). 

You do have to prepare yourself to laugh out loud so much that the neighbors will think you’ve gotten a hold of some stuff that’s only semi-legal in California. 

BONUS: The first three seasons are on Netflix. 

HD Everything
Hi, my name is Nadine and I’m an HD snob. A year ago, I had a $35 clunker tv from Goodwill. Today, I have a 46″ LED and my life has been changed forever. I’ll have you know that OWN doesn’t come in HD on our provider so you can add that to the list of many reasons why I won’t be attending Oprah’s Life Class. Something isn’t in HD? First World Fit.

Reddit is not just for dudes. But in my experience, it’s a whole lotta dudes. And just like girls, they get a little obsessive about things. For every Real Housewives gif you see in blog world, they have some equally overused meme photo. 

Overwhelmed by the randomness of it? Start with the aww section. It’s all user uploaded pictures of their adorable animals. I just provided you at least 30 minutes of entertainment. You’re welcome. 

Big Dogs
Again, not a total dude thing but have you ever seen a guy pick out a yorkie for himself? No. And I guarantee N feels better about walking our 50lb. Golden Retriever than a 5lb. Chihuahua. 

Okay, he was itty bitty once. It didn’t last long.

If your boyfriend walks your 5lb. dog for you, congratulations, you have a good man. Because he sure as hell wasn’t doing it just because he loves how masculine he looks with that pup. 

I used to hate when N grew a beard. Want to make out? Um, no. That shiz is face rash central. But the more it stuck around, the more I liked it. He looks decidedly more Middle Eastern with it. Plus when he grows it out, the two of us are really airport security’s dream team (ha). 

Superhero Movies
Yeah, yeah, go ahead and tell me how much you loved The Dark Knight or how you were the first in line for Man of Steel this weekend. But there is a pretty good chance you didn’t just go with a group of girlfriends. Yup, these started as dude movies. 

Gwen Stacy: The reason I got bangs.

I was never a huge fan until I started dating N. Then I realized how super awesome they are and now I’m just as obsessed as he is. Plus, there’s almost always a romantic sub-plot. Yes, please! 

Being Gross
I drink out of the milk jug and I’m the biggest slob I know. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Sometimes it’s fun necessary to unbutton your pants after a big dinner, burp out loud when you drank soda too fast, and put off doing laundry for 3 weeks. Maybe some habits boys just get right.

Anyone else disturbed by my repeated use of the word dude? I grew up in California in the 00s. Just be glad I didn’t drop a “hella” on you. What dude stuff are you in to?

Don’t forget, you have less than a day left to enter to win a fabulous piece of your choice from The Rad Market. In the meantime I’ll be swooning over this necklace:
