DO REAL MEN EAT QUICHE?

Well, I’m guessing you won’t find much of it in the army barracks!

Am I suggesting they don’t have a cultured side? Does that mean they don’t have a “feminine” side – they can’t be emotional, loving, tender, caring, forgiving, unselfish, patient, give themselves to the service of others?

Perhaps they – men – are the transition between God and women in all these ways. Perhaps women are loving, tender, caring, forgiving, unselfish, patient, give themselves to the service of others because they were created from the rib of man who was created in the likeness of God.  Perhaps all those characteristics come first in the emotions of man.  But man has had to delegate those “softer” attributes in order to have time for the macho role – power, like that which is needed to push my car out of the highway when my motor quits – authority, like that which is needed to command that the switch be pulled on the death row inmate – determination, like that which is demanded when the farmer has to plant his crop for the fourth time because it was washed out again – persistence, like that which is required to sit at the microscope for hours looking for a cure for Covid – violence, like that which makes him pull the trigger in behalf of his country.

To the Veterans (men and women) who have served to make America free, I thank you.

And back to my question. Do real men eat quiche? Probably if it looks enough like pizza!


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Quiche containing bacon–real men will eat it every time. God bless our veterans. J.

      Eggs and bacon. Can’t miss. But spinach leaves and olives. That doesn’t entice me. But we are not talking about me, are we? Men. That’s my subject. We do owe a lot to our Veterans. I’m thankful for what the have sacrificed and feel sorrow at what many still bear in the form of memories and trauma. There is no cheap freedom.

    God bless the veterans in every nation who fought and died that we can ALL today eat pizza or quiche;

    I pray with you, “God, bless our veterans and those who are now serving. We pray protection and spiritual healing to all, and comfort of dwelling under your wings to those who know you. Thank you.”
