Single in the City : Adventures in Urban Dating

{November 15, 2008}   When I Need a Man Most

Lying awake in bed at night, Friday night, alone and horny is the definition of what it means to be single. But at least I am able to take care of myself when I need to. It’s a gaurantee. LIving in an overpriced studio apartment, that’s another definition of single. Single serving meals, single “tax” on travel, single seats at the movie theatre. All of these define what it means to be a woman alone in the world. And most times I am happy to be that person. But last night my shower curtain fell down. And I couldn’t get it back up. It was then that I realized I need a man! I couldn’t fix the damn thing and I couldn’t take a shower. Arrg…the single life – this is when I need a man the most! Good for several reasons, men are the best at fixing things that fall, hauling up heavy groceries, cleaning out the gutters and maintaining the car. This is when I need a man most. It’s better to be two sometimes. It’s easier. And the cold November nights seem a little less lonely.

this reminds me of the episode of Sex and the City where Sam gets sick. Have you seen it?
You must.
