Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

The Man Date

This NYT article about the man date is hillarious. I think I've gone on plenty of man dates. It's usually a lunch or dinner, and it's funny, we always do seem to follow the same guide lines as outlined in thie article.

Hmmmm, I don't think I've ever gone on a man date with any friends from back home.

The delicate posturing began with the phone call.

The proposal was that two buddies back in New York City for a holiday break in December meet to visit the Museum of Modern Art after its major renovation.

"He explicitly said, 'I know this is kind of weird, but we should probably go,' " said Matthew Speiser, 25, recalling his conversation with John Putman, 28, a former classmate from Williams College.

The weirdness was apparent once they reached the museum, where they semi-avoided each other as they made their way through the galleries and eschewed any public displays of connoisseurship. "We definitely went out of our way to look at things separately," recalled Mr. Speiser, who has had art-history classes in his time.

Haha, I go on man dates all the time. Luckily man dates happen most often between the "he's always got a girlfriend" type guys so there's really no awkwardness between us. Not that there should be anyway.

ha, yeah you definitely go on man dates! I love the line about "socializing without the crutch of business or sports", men are so damned paranoid!

I went on a girl-boy date with a guy who went to Williams. The fact that I have ovaries might explain why there was no chemistry.

Thanks DT, I just realized that I go on these "man dates" a lot. In fact, I went on one today. But you know, I dig 'em. Now worries aqui.

funny how guys on "man dates" don't sit next to each other at the movies...there's always that empty seat or "coat" seat between them.
