A Post for Rob

I received an email tonight from a friend of mine. Rob. He said that although he loves my blog more than life itself enjoys reading my posts, he finds there isn’t enough “man” stuff in them. Man stuff? Thank goodness he specified because to me man stuff means gutting a fish, talking about motor’s, scratching your balls. Man stuff.

No. He’d like me to expand upon certain topics such as farting in the bathtub, and -I quote- “road head.”

Yes. Road-head. I guess this refers to when you give your man a blowjob while he’s driving. Which – excuse me while I wipe the tears of laughter from my eyes – is not about to happen in my lifetime. Why would anyone try that? It’s illegal to talk on your cell phone while driving. I highly doubt that “road-head” is deemed law-abiding.
Not to mention, giving head of any kind will give you those long, deep wrinkles around your mouth.
So “road head,” although quite possibly fodder for the male fantasy, is not high on my list of things to do or things to write about… although, I guess I did manage to fulfill the latter, so there you go Rob, a post about “road head.”

Rob also mentioned that he thinks it’s quite funny that bloggers will refer to one another in very affectionate manners; he referred in particular the oft-mentioned BFF.
Once I got over my momentary “What fucken nerve!” I did contemplate this observation. The blogging community is a very loving and respectful one. There are few faux-pas, little political incorrectness when addressing a fellow blogger, and a lot of mutual admiration. I even read a blog yesterday in which the women were referring to each other as “blogbians.”

Obviously the women were not lesbians. Well, they could have been, but I don’t think so because their posts talked about life with husbands and kids. But the level of their bloggy intimacy was such that they couldn’t stay away from each other’s blogs, faithfully followed each new posting, read each other’s comments, commented on each other’s comments. In essence, they couldn’t get enough of each other in the blogosphere.

And by the very definition that I’ve written, I, too, could be considered a blogbian. I too, on a certain level, adore a few blogs out there, reading each new post with rapt attention, mentally composing my reply as I devour every word my fellow blogger is sharing, eagerly commenting, praising, hoping the object of my blogger desire will feel the same way for me as I feel for her. See. Blogbian. Completely natural. We’re just born that way.

But really, when you think about it, how can blogging not foster these kinds of bonds. We, as bloggers, are pouring our hearts and souls out, sharing private experiences, divulging secrets to one another that in some cases, we’ve not even told our mates. So yeah. Blogging is intimate. And yeah, friendships do develop.

And really, this could bring me to an entirely different topic: that of real life friendships. Because aren’t we, as women, linked to our female friendships, sometimes so deeply, that we’d rather be with our girlfriends that with our men? Sure. We live with our men. We raise children with them. Some of us do perform road-head. But when it comes down to it, wouldn’t we rather be eating cheesecake, each of us eating our own big honking piece, not SHARING it, with our best girlfriend than our guy?…I’m just sayin’…

Men may be good for some things. But when it really comes down to it, your girlfriend, or your bloggy BFF, is going to the one to listen to you sympathetically when you complain that you had to sleep in the wet spot.

    Hello Sandra. Here I am making my very first visit to your blog, and I get to read about road head and wet spots. I think I'm going to like it here. LOL

    But you are right. There are many friendship connections to be made in the world of blogging. When I first started out, I had no idea what I was doing, what I was getting myself into, or the possibilities for learning and making new friends. All in all, it's been a nice ride so far, and I'm looking forward to what's around the next corner.

    P.S. I went back and read many of your previous posts that while I didn't comment on, I have to admit that I enjoyed them so much that I just kept going. Wow….four kids, hubby, nursing school, working out, RLS, etc. You are quite the multi tasker. I applaud you.

    This is great! There's so much support out there in the mommy blogging world. I'm learning something new everyday. Road head & blogbians. I might just be a blogbian in the closet.

    Road Head is very much illegal. I have a friend (not me, I swear) that found out the hard way.

    excellent, excellent post!!

    as one of your blog bff's/blogbians/blesbos, I totally get what you mean.. we (the blog community) really feel like we know each other.. and we do, when you think about it. I share things on my blog that I don't share with people I see everyday at work. AND we plan to meet up with each other in real life (wink!), so uhm, that makes us real friends, not jut blogbians ;)

    PS, and you knew this was coming because its me: GIVE YOUR MAN SOME FREAKIN ROAD HEAD FOR GOD SAKES!!

    ;)

    Okay, two new words learned today. Road head and blogbians. They say you should learn something new everyday. Hmmm, my day is done. :-)

    Great post!

    OMG – just when I thought I'd heard it all – road head!! Blogbians – Bahahaha!! I love it! Also, I agree, I'd much rather be eating cheesecake (and definitely not sharing)with a BFF than giving road head! Guess that makes me a blogbian too;)

    hmmm… 'roadhead'… WAAAAAAAYYYYYY OVERRATED!!! always great for the first few seconds, but within a minute or so you're swerving all over the road and i saw the movie 'the World According to Garp' when i was a teenager and there is an indelible image that ALWAYS enters my mind about the time that i inevitably start swerving like i'm trying to get home from a New Years party at 5:00 am that causes things to very quickly soften and i have to call a time-out to the proceedings. — and i spent my 20's (and some of my 30's) being a VERY bad boy doing a lot of things that conjure disgust in a lot of women and fantasy in a lot of men, and as appealing as the thought of having the honeymoon tackle swallowed almost always is, it's jut not nearly as erotic immediately after having it severed. – SAY NO TO ROADHEAD!!

    You had me laughing out loud!

    I sent you an email about switching to your own domain (you mentioned it in your comment on my blog).

    Drive safe now….

    When I saw my name on a previous comment it confused the hell out of me. Not a lot of us out there and I sure as hell have never received road head. Tried it a few times when I was young and easily manipulated.

    Only thing that comes to my mind is the one thing I disclosed to my husband prior to marriage….a wicked case of TMJ.
    (also tears of laughter streaming down my face)

    But aren't there some blogs you read because you made friends with someone, but are more of an obligation?

    OKAY! so heres my thing about road heaad. sometimes when your down there dont you wonder, however morbid, " what if we get into an accident while im down here!" i mean think of the possibilities, either you die and the cops have to explain how the crash happened to your family, or you crash and you accidently bite down on your mans pee pee, because what the hell else would you do at that moment? yes these are the scenarios that keep me entertained while im pretending to be into the "road -head"
