Seventy Naked Men

Tonight I went for coffee with my cousin Jennifer and some of her friends. Today is her 27th birthday today but she says she doesn't celebrate it because every year something bad happens on her birthday. This year the bad thing was someone broke into her car and took her cellphone and address book. Thinking it might cheer her up to know everyone has similar experiences I told her on my 30th birthday I got stood up on a date and the power company was working nearby and cut the power for the entire block so I was faced with spending the evening alone in my cold, dark apartment. Not a fun birthday but arguably not necessarily worse. Alan, who had been sitting quietly with his girlfriend Jasmine, chimed in: "I spent my last birthday with 70 naked men." Everyone nodded. The group silently agreed his was the best worst birthday story and no one was brave enough to ask for details.

Yes, you are probably right. But then I'd have to hang out with 70 naked men to post more stories like that one and, while I am all for male bonding, I just don't think I need quite that much of it.
