4. It may be it is so atypical that we don't.

That's the joke isn't it? We don't, so we are what we do not do.

What makes us as men authentic? I know that I don't spend that much time thinking about it.

I know that when I look in the mirror and see myself getting balder, I tell myself I still have a wicked grin, a sharp mind, and the body of a lean mean fighting machine. I like me.

I was a skinny kid to start off with so weight wasn't really a factor in my life.

I just shy of six foot.

Being emotionally distant, that's a different story.

PTSD. I could write a book.

But, that's not all I am.

The sum of the parts are greater that what you see.

That I think is true of most everyone.
