Tools.  An unavoidable evil in every single girls life.  Personally, I find them a freaking pain--but entertaining, nonetheless.  I am, of course, talking about Male/Man/Guy/Boy Tools.  Which, by the way, as I write this I'm thinking to myself, "Meg, why do people even call boys tools anyway?"  I don't know the answer dears.  But it's provocative, and it gets the people going.*  Ha.  So, today I write my first "Toolshed" post....cuz the Pro-vo?  It be FULL OF EM'.  It's like they all get together and have tool conventions once a week, BECAUSE they are multiplying at an uncomfortably abnormal rate.  Who's with me?!!  Exhibit A:  Golds Gym.  Am I member?  Sadly yes.  I am indeed, partial to the Cardio Cinema.  However, on this occasion I was lifting weights at a machine when a guy comes up and sits down to the machine next to me.  He puts the little tacker tack thinger down to the heaviest weight, and proceeds to say to me (in the guy-ish voice ever--you know the one) "If I lift all this weight, will you go out with me?"  HA.  I then threw up on site, he cleaned it up....no I'm totally kidding.  Oh bless that toolbag.  I said no.

  1. Gah. I love that skirt. I longed for it too long at Anthro and then it was gone. You look adorable.

  2. Me thinks that you should now dedicate a post to those of us who are NOT tools... just sayin ;)

  3. Hey Meg, welcome back!

    As far as your post goes, most guys know better than to hit on girls at the gym. It is tempting though, I admit, but I (and most gym-going males) have a strict "no flirting at the gym" policy. However, answer me this: There are sometimes girls at the gym that I would like to get to know, that I never see anywhere else. Is there a way to approach them without being a tool? Can you give us males some solutions rather than just criticisms? :)


  4. What' the correct word for a girl tool? For example she might do (they don't always SAY verbally of course) the whole "if I wear this?" or "if I say this?" or "if I move my body this way...will you go out with me?" come on give this guy some credit!

  5. Tool is a euphemism for the male reproductive organ. It's true.
