Taking Baby Steps Toward Metrosexuality

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006, 11:39 pm

I’m starting to worry about myself. To wit:

  • I got a haircut today (an event always fraught with peril) and halfway through my stylist and I decided that cutting my hair short along the sides was simply the only way to salvage the situation. She did a good job, and after mussing my hair into a spiky coif asked if I’d like her to put some product in my hair. “Yes,” I said, “Some product would be nice.”
  • I went out for two reasons: to get a haircut, and to buy a baking dish. I need a baking dish because I want to make chicken divan tomorrow and I need a baking dish. I bought a baking dish because I want to make chicken divan. What, you want me to start waving a white flag with HELP written in big black letters?
  • I seared a nice piece of meat for my supper, and after draining the fat I deglazed the pan with some nice red wine. WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING DEGLAZING PANS?

All I can say is, thank Christ the Steelers play tomorrow night. I need to put on the jersey and wave the Terrible Towel and drink some Yuengling and scream my head off. That should right the ship.

    If deglazing pans with wine to get at all those baked on juicy bits makes me metrosexual, then bring on the shiny shirts and $200 shoes. When exactly did it become unmanly to get at all the flavor dripping fat hath wrought in the bottom of a pan? Sheesh.

    Uhm, I’m a girl and I don’t know what Chicken Divan or deglazing is. I was gonna say maybe I’m one too but I had to Google Yuengling so I think I’m probably safe.

    There’s about 5,000 new Steeler fans on the internet from the Mansion free bet. Me being one of them.

    As long as you weren’t wearing a “Kiss the Cook” apron while deglazing pans you can still call yourself a man.

    The deglazing was a total success, I should say. Sauteed some onions in there and, ooh, very good.

  5. Ken Says:

    Sounds like sissy boy is going to be sitting on his divan deglazing his hair with product. (At best it is a mixed up life we lead!)

    You need any advice on product, you know where to find me. In the meantime, maybe hit another pretty girl in the face.
