Male machismo gets RedHairedScot in trouble.

Ok, so there's an incredibly smart, absolutely beautiful girl who works in the same office I do. She's moving to a new apartment where she has washer/dryer connections, and I have a spare washer and dryer. (Current apt. has no connections, so I stacked them in the corner.) These are not stackables, they're the full things -- hundreds of pounds or whatever. So I am going to let her borrow them until I move again.

So I get them outside, and I've forgotten how heavy they are. Moving them required unattractive grimacing and loud grunts, so I performed this task before she showed up. I was hoping she would look at them and say "Wow, those are heavy! You must be a strong beast of a man!" and swoon. Unfortunately the hot water at my apt. complex has been playing up so they've littered the front of the apartments with temporary above-ground pipes. The entire "wheel" chapter of my fifth grade science text is now useless for moving these things. The conversation will now go as follows.

*girl recovers from swoon*
Her: So . . . here's the rolling thingy to get these to the car.
Me: Err, there are all these pipe things in the way.
Her: Well, you said you could just pick them up.
Me: Umm, I did say that, didn't I.
. . .
Me: I don't suppose you can get this off me, can you?

Next time I'm gonna date one of the girls off ESPN that lift Volkswagons or something.

So that actually worked out great. And I cleaned up my apartment to impress her, etc., etc., and what's the first thing she says when she comes in?

"You've got spaghetti sauce on your chin."

In related news, I'm still single.

Merton, I'm so glad you're here.

You don't understand. Sometimes it's not about sex, it's about compainionship. Somebody to go to movies with, to play silly games with. Somebody to talk to about current events and who shares my passions. A woman who complements me as a person, to stand by me as we go through grad school. What I'm trying to say is: she's really, really hot.

(She must never, ever see this post.)

I'd say get a back brace, a dozen bottles of rubbing alcohol, a bottle of sake, and GIT R DONE!

I've done some outright ******** acts of lifting for women...worst had to be a 32" TV by myself up two flights of stairs. At least I had a weight belt and some rubbing alcohol at home for when the pain really kicked in the next day

I think it's our inner primate showing itself thinking "EPP EEEEE EEEE EEEEP THPPPP EEEP!" (translation: ARGH I GOTTA GET BROWNIE POINTS!)

It's amazing how beautiful women can get any man to lift heavy objects or run and do all kinds of things for them. EVen fat lazy guys (not you of course).
