Words Of Wisdom... From A Naked Bongo Player

I subscribe to the magazine Women's Health. I do so because I strive to be healthy... and I want my mail carrier to think that I lead a healthy lifestyle. Each month Women's Health gives you a page preview of the hot topic in their mate magazine Men's Health. I usually don't pay much attention to it because, well, it is guy stuff and I am a gal and therefore can get bored with guy stuff.

Well, this month Men's Health did an article on Matthew McConaughey. I am not a big fan of his-I like the characters he plays in movies, I like the way his mouth forms his words, and I even like the fact that he is serious eye candy... but I think he is a little nutty. I try and stay away from nutty. The fact that he plays bongos naked does not frighten me, it is the fact that he has not worn deodorant in 20 years makes me want to run for the hills. If you have read me long, you know that I have an obsession with deodorant-a compulsion in you will.

BUT, aside from the fact that he plays bongos naked and is obviously smelly, he said something in this article that completely and totally made my uterus ache. It made me want to go rip all of the clothes off of my husband and bask in the fact that he is a man.

Matthew said this when asked what the one thing he thinks women need to know about men... "Sometimes when a woman falls for a guy, she asks him to change, and he changes so much that she loses her Huck Finn, the rascal in the man she fell in love with. Men are willing to change to make you happy-because when you're happy, we're happy. But don't completely take the boy out of the man. You're gonna miss him."

Now, I don't care who the hell you are... that right there is friggen hot!

Phew! Slap a pickle on me and call me a grilled cheese sandwich! I had to reread that quote a good 4 times before I was able to calm down. Huck Finn... who knew you were so irresistible?

Women should read that quote, and men should thank Mr. McConaughey for opening our eyes to such raw sexual honesty.

Thank you, you smelly, naked, bongo playing nut!

I like this guy, especially without his shirt on (which he does quite often). I liek the fact that my husband thinks he's a good looking guy and will occasionally take me to a chick flick if Matthew is in it. I gotta tell ya, When I read that quote the second time, I could actually hear his voice saying those words, and you're right, it was hot.

He's a Texas boy and all things considered I can overlook the whole deodorant thing...especially after a quote like that!

ok June, my wife openly admits that Matthew is on "her list." After I read your post, she said, "read his quote again..." Then with disgust, said, "Camilla doesnt even know what she has..."

June your blog is the highlight of the blogs I read. Laugh out loud every day!

WOW. Truer words were never spoken! It took a 7 year marriage and a PAINFUL divorce for me to really understand what he meant. I do now though, and my hubby is the Huckest Finn you'll ever met! And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I guess I'm the only one who doesn't get it...

That's OK - I like my fiance the way he is. :-) (And Matthew McConaughey is pretty cute too!)
