Signs I am Getting Old - Vol. 3

I used to read this:

Now, I read this:
I may not know all the new sex tricks, but damn if I can't organize a closet.

Ha ha ha... good point. I can't even remember the last time I picked up a Cosmomolitan (magazine... heh) and I used to be obsessed!! I don't know... maybe it isn't how you say... maybe it's that we know ALL the sex tricks/tips AND can organize your closet!!! What good little wives we'll make! ;)

But do you know what to do when your boobs act weird? Everything you need to know is on page 266.

My girlfriend has a mystery subscription to Cosmopolitan (she has no idea why it keeps coming as she's never paid for it). I enjoy looking at the section where they allegedly answer all the questions women have about men, courtesy of the one staffer who happens to be male. Seriously, what is the probability that the one guy who works at Cosmopolitan is straight? It's like asking a guy who works at the auto shop what's wrong with your car, even though he just makes the coffee and pencils in appointments.

I also love the one page they have called, like, "Cosmo for Your Guy" where they tell guys the truthiness about their ladies. Like any dude ever would read that.

Is "reorganizing a closet" really just a sex trick?

I LOVE me some Real Simple.

The thing with Cosmo (and magazines in the same vein) is that it used to be mildly entertaining, but now I will leaf through and feel stupider for having done so.

I already drink heavily to kill my brain cells. I don't need an article on "How to Drive Your Man Wild on the Kitchen Sink" to make me any more brain dead.

I agree with your choice although I can't help wanting to know about "When your boobs act weird"

Too bad they can't be combined into something like Real Simple Sex Tips or Horny Housewife Weekly.

I'm just glad to see I'm not the only one!

My first reaction to this was, "OMG, right?!" I think the last time I picked up Cosmo was on an airplane b/c the chick sitting next to me was done with it. And if you love Real Simple, you should also check out a magazine called Domino. I just discovered it and will promptly be getting myself a subscription.

I am so right there with ya babe. But we used to read Cosmo so we already know all the sex tricks. Lets face it, sex hasn't changed any from when we were reading Cosmo. Closet organization on the other hand, light years of change in the last 5 years alone!

I think the sex tricks may involve something like, "Men like boobs. Be born with some."

The only girls I know who read Cosmo were women's studies majors, trying to claim they were analyzing the articles for research purposes, but really just wanted to read a crappy magazine because they weren't bright enough to read actual books and write reports on those.
