Entry: "Continuing Education???"

I received the following information in an email from a friend and although I classify it as yet another humorous attempt at "male-bashing", I couldn't help but to laugh my butt off as I read the class choices. I'm sure many of you have probably seen this email at one time or another since it's been circulating around the 'net for some time...if you have already then chuckle again and pass the information on to someone in your life who needs it, ok?

Class #11 was very informative and has helped me come to grips with my shortcomings with the wifey when we travel abroad to the mall and other shopping venues Mr. Greg. In other words...um, I'm a very proud alumni...-lol

hehehe...Frank, thats the one class that I had a relapse in! LOL. I was doing so good too, all the way up until the Christmas holidays...then one day we did Wal-Mart...I fell off the wagon...LOL. But she got to admit, even after Wal-Mart I was able to breathe again!! LMAO...take care...G

G, I would hope you would have signed up for all of them. And adding a puff, puff class couldn't hurt. LOL

*feigning surprise*...All of 'em? The other ones don't apply to me, it's only #5 & #6 that I have issues with...LOL. And a puff, puff class certainly sounds fun to me, shoot I already have half of it mastered already, someone just has to instruct me on how to pass the daggone thing! LMAO! Plus my previous instructor (Bill Clinton) "forgot" to show me the proper way to inhale. *j/k*...greggy
