Have you noticed this? Women always seem to have this regularly scheduled activities like lunches, manicures, book clubs, and things where they make sure they stay connected with friends. Men, they usually just go out and get hammered with buddies every now and again.
So, with only around 3 of my closest friends still living in Chicago proper, I've been trying to find something to do that is biweekly or monthly that assures we see one another. Here are some options - let me know what you think . . .
Golfing: This is out. I hate golf because it's boring as hell.
Ballgames: This is not a bad idea because a few of us have season tickets to Cubs games. So, I'm thinking every other week the 4 of us go to a game, not because it's good to watch a team this bad, but because this is just what men do. I still have so many fond memories of Wrigley that it can still be a good experience.
Dinner Parties: This would be a couples thing, but I've done this before where you rotate houses, and it's pretty fun.
Sports: Maybe we could play on a team of some kind together, like softball?
Trivia at Bars: We have done this in the past, but you really can't do much catching up if you're racking your brain for answers the whole time.
Flag Burnings: I'm just seeing if you're still paying attention.
What do you think, seven readers? Do you have any write-ins? Anyone else have this problem?
