Slobaum has a Melodica*. He started messing with it tonight and Magnus seems obsessed. Ever so often Magnus ‘sings’ with it. It’s pretty neat. Magnus always stops to watch the sax and melodica player when we walk downtown.
Magnus would be musical, leaving me as the only non musical one in the family (possibly all of Nashville).
*Slobaum likes odd instruments.

PSA for all aspiring and current Dominants.
I’ve never dated a man who wore a tie regularly, or at all. I’ve never minded that.
Until I saw these beautiful knots. OMG, seriously these knots are sexy. Slobaum, get some ties, then do this!!!

2) Don’t hold a door open for an absurd amount of time. This typically also involves a creepy smile. The long-door-hold seems to say, “I want to fuck you, look how nice I am, I’m just being a really nice guy is all.” This awkward interaction may last only ten or fifteen seconds, but it feels much longer. The long-door-hold is often followed by the ass-check-out, which is obvious and embarrassing. These types of MOTs wear khakis and order coffee drinks with whipped cream. If you’re going to hold a door open for a WUT and you’re a MOT, just don’t make eye contact, and please make sure you’re not holding the door open for any other reason than to be nice. Ask yourself, “Would I hold this door open for someone I don’t want to stick my penis inside?” You know what, maybe just don’t hold the door open at all. Most women have arms.
I actually can’t figure out if the author is trying to be funny or serious.
Look, I’m from the South and there are two things I am always going to do. 1. I am always going to hold the door for people when in a situation to do so. Man, woman or child, it’s the polite thing to do. 2. If I’m not engaged in a conversation, I’m going to smile and say “Hello” or “Good morning” or something.
If you think this is creepy behavior, I think you might be the one with the problem.
These kind of generalizations are so annoying. You know who else is often extra courteous to young women? Fathers of young women. Friends of young women, grammas, people who see the strained look on your face, people who absent-mindedly opened and started to hold the door before realizing how fucking slow you’re walking, my son, etc. To assume malice or sexual harassment when someone is overly polite or misjudged the chip on your shoulder is just as malicious.
This is obviously not written by someone who’s ever been south of the mason Dixon line and if it was they didn’t understand us.
Not smiling as someone walks or jogs or anything past you is rude, smile politely and do the head nod.
Not holding the door open for someone is also rude, and not making eye contact smiling and nodding while they pass through the door is also rude.

Back up and working on the employment test mentioned last night. I’m exhausted.
IE10 doesn’t recognize conditional comments any longer. I understand that they are suppose to not need them anymore, but I just can’t trust ie yet. I needed those conditional comments to trust you ie. Now I’m rethinking our entire rocky relationship.
