Things I’ve Heard that I Wish I Hadn’t

Hair is a sexual extension of one’s self: a psychiatrist told me this once, and ever since I can’t look at people’s hair without thinking about how individuals are choosing to express their sexuality. The psychiatrist told me this after I cut my own hair – lol
If a man lives long enough, he will end up dying of prostate cancer.
A Thanksgiving meal calorie intake is somewhere between 2,400 to 4,200 calories.
About 2/3 of the year’s sales happens between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That must mean that much of what is being bought is for other people as Christmas presents.
The shortest day of the year in Edmonton, where I live, has 7 ½ hours of daylight.
The only joke I can remember (and wish I could forget) is the following: What is the mating call of a blonde? Tee hee, I think I’m drunk. What is the mating call of a brunette? Is the blonde gone yet?

GB I had a good laugh at the things you you remember. I have a short shot hair cut, what does that say about my sexuality? Whatever it is I believe, it is super? LOL

Rick, I don't know what a short shot haircut looks like, but I'm sure you rock it.
