What is the aversion toward lotion for men? I mean, in what book does it say, “All men shall go without moisturizer?” Is there a law in some guy book? If I’m missing something, please clue me in.
My DH, God love him, is so particular about his appearance. Every crease in his pants have to be pressed just so. His tucked in shirt cannot show a wrinkle, a crease or a fold. I can’t share a bathroom with him because he takes too damn long. But hand him a bottle of lotion and he looks at it like it’s going to give him Herpes Simplex 2.
And my dad…he is a different story altogether. The guy has enough flakes coming off his legs and feet to rival that of the Swiss Alps. My mom has to wipe down his bedside table every morning because of the dust that has collected during the night.
We women must make a stand. What can we do to get these guys to understand that using body lotion will NOT turn them into a girl? I say to them, “embrace your feminine side”…and we promise not to call you Sue.
