Male call

The arrival of the annual SI swimsuit edition raises the perennial moral dilemma: Do I pitch it in the trash and claim it never arrived? Or, let him have it and suffer the inevitable downsizing of my self-esteem?

Maybe you could just use a marker to add some clothes on her? Or spill your coffee "accidentally"?

I'm tempted by both ideas, Brenda. But because there are so many of "her" (one on every page), and I'm basically lazy, 'think I'll go with the accidental coffee spill. Genius. Thanks!

Update: 29-year-old son stopped by yesterday afternoon, saw the magazine and asked,"Can I take this home?''Go ahead,' replied his dad, without having opened the issue. I had a sneaking suspicion the man wanted something. Thirty minutes later, he announced he's taking a trip to OK City week after next to see a pro basketball game with guys from his high school basketball team. Fair trade.

What a wonderful trade-off. You get the house to yourself and don't have to look at the bikini goddesses.

Still haven't opened the swimsuit issue yet. That makes four years and counting. Just lack of interest, I guess.
