Here's my request: "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. When I played varsity volleyball and basketball, we had a tape (yes, you read that right - cassette tape and I graduated from high school in 1996) that we would warm up to before games. Hey, my high school mascot was a tiger, so that song was PERFECT!!! That song really got us "pumped" and ready to compete! Boy, does that song bring back some memories.
Don't be shy...go ahead, request away...and include the memory, if you dare.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the football before helping around the house.
3. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
4. A Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer quickly to No 9 for the meaning of nothing.)
5. That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
6. Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot', which is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' - that will bring on No. 7).
7. Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying, "FORGET YOU!"
8. Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to No. 4.
9. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in "Fine".

Food must be on my mind...I have been blogging about recipes a lot lately. Hmmmm...
This is what is in the crockpot for dinner tonight:
1 (2 lb.) pork tenderloin
1 (12 oz.) can of root beer (I always use A&W...have you had a can recently of the stuff? It tastes like the chilled mugs. Frothy and delicious! Yes, seriously that good!)
1 (18oz.) bottle of barbeque sauce (I use honey BBQ sauce...I am all about the sweetness.)
Place all three ingredients in the crockpot for 6 hours. When done, shred meat with a fork and put on hamburger buns. YUMMY!!!
