The Life of Bon: If I were a boy, yo!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

If I were a boy, yo!

Blogging geniuses Erin and Gay have come up with the genius idea to write on the topic, "If I were a boy..."  Little did they know this has been on my mind for years now and I've got more to say than they are going to know what to do with!

IF I WERE A BOY....



I would never get uber emotional and break into tears for no apparent reason.  I'd have control of my emotions, dang it!

I would take the trash out every day and do the dishes because I know how that turns a woman on.

I'd have a hair cut like Jef Holm's.  So beautiful.



I would have five minutes of laughing time every day where I remembered that I never have to push another person out of me and I never have to have monthly cramps.  MWAHAHAHA!  Women are such suckers!

I'd pee wherever and whenever I felt like.

I would watch The Bachelor every week for no other reason than it would make me a total ladies man, I would get invited to all the girls only Bachelor parties, and I would always have something to talk to the chicks about.

I'd be really tall like my brothers.  All my brothers are over six feet tall and I'm a mere 5 foot 4.  Now that ain't fair!

I'd try out for NBA basketball.  See above.  Tallness.

I would try to come up with clever ways to make girls pay for their own dates.  I'd make bets with them that were guarantee wins for me.  I'd never have to pay for a date!

I probably wouldn't be a teacher.  :(  Instead I would be a professional sky diver!

Every time girls complained about their period or the pains of feeling like your whole insides are going to explode every month  I would say, "Gross.  No one wants to hear about that.  Please.  Be classy."

I would pick up hitch hikers all the time.  No threat there!  Also, I would hitch hike myself.  All over the freaking country.

I would carry a gun around with me just to feel more hardcore.

I would never ever ever have to go grocery shopping again.  I'd make the woman do it!  Oh, it is good to be a man!

I'd have really big muscles.  Obvi.

Wow!  Who would have thought I would enjoy being a boy so darn much?  If I ever get reincarnated I know what gender I'm choosing!

Now, before I sign off I want to live you with a special little Valentines Day treat.  And something to get us through the rest of January.  Goodness, does this month ever end?

Ashley from the Shine Project emailed me and said, "Hey!  You want some bracelets?"  And I said "You bet I do!"  She zipped them over to me in the mail and I haven't taken them off since.  I have so much respect for Ashley and what she does.  Her jewelry is made by at risk youth seeking empowerment and to break the cycle.  They make the jewelry and are paid for it- the money enabling them to go to school and find opportunities they would never have otherwise.


Pretty inspiring, huh?  Not to mention that the jewelry they make is seriously breath taking.





It stands for Bonnie loves Greg, not Boy loves Girl as Hubs originally thought.  Silly boy.

For Valentine's Day, Ashley is giving away a custom Threads bracelet, just like the above beauty I'm sporting.  Your initial + heart + your lover's initial.  No lover?  Just slap your own initial on there!

Mandatory:  1. Follow Life of Bon and 2.  Check out the Thread shop and leave a comment saying which bracelet is your fave.

Also, because they are awesome, Ashley and her peeps are doing a little Valentine's Day special for you readers- buy two bracelets get one free.  Enter code "Valentines" at check out.  I think it's time we all go buy OURSELVES a little Valentine's Day treat.  Am I right, or am I right?

P.S.  Welcome Saturated Canary readers!  I sure hope you'll stick around.  Check out the Best of Bon if you're still not sure!

  55. I just died over looking at all those pretty things on her website. Holy cow. I'd kill to have that kind of talent!

    It was SO hard to choose, but I think my favorite is the "Stack it Up Set". The Pixie Dust Collection is a close second.

    P.S. I agree with Danielle about the hair. Little bit jealous that I can't pull it off because I'm not a man.

    ReplyDelete
  56. love the stack it up set!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I second the pee thing. Boys definitely don't know how good they have it to be able to just GO wherever they want. Ugh.

    And I l-o-v-e the simple chain bracelets. I would take any one (or seven) of those :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the Crystal Quartz Pixie!

    Jef Holm's hair is pretty fantastic! You pretty much have the whole manhood thing down!

  63. I would definitely love not bursting into tears from nothing. Guys have it so lucky sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm so glad you found my blog so that I could in turn find yours! You had me cracking up this whole post- just what I needed on a day when I'm feeling under the weather :)

    This is great because I just discovered the Shine project myself a few days ago and had the boyfriend *hint hint* "look" at my favorite bracelets! Love the rough gold and the bow bracelets especially...

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love the one in the pic!! But I'm also a fan of the bow bracelet and the one with the little heart. Love love love!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Very cute bracelets! My fav would have to be the Rose Nykelle. Loved reading your take on being a guy--I've always said I want to come back as a guy after I die! There are a lot of reasons to be married, but definitely it is twice the work as being single. Guys really make out being married--although I'm sure they would joke otherwise. Not worrying or caring too much about anything would be the best reason to be a guy. And getting ready to go out in a split second, too.

  68. those little initial bracelets are too cute! i want one :)
    also, you crack me up all the time. i love it. you'd be an...interesting guy. is it weird to say i'd totally date you? ;)
