I read a lot of posts on AOM and enjoy them all. I love that this site is restoring manliness. I'm not sure how " manly " this post is but here it goes. My wife went on a beauty run today, facial, hair, nails, wax, etc. she got a massage, and all that stuff. Then she did something completely unexpected. When she got home, she had a very nice cigar for me and the ingredients for martinis. She put a tea kettle on the stove and put peppermint oil in the water. She had me lean over it with a towel over my head to steam my face. I can't even begin to describe how good that felt. It's like my skin could breath. After that she had me sit at the table and she gave me a straight razor shave. I lit my cigar and had a martini while she rubbed this cleanser on my face then a lotion. She cleaned and trimmed my finger nails, massaged my scalp and put talcum powder on me. After a couple of drinks and a damn fine cigar I hit the shower. I came out of the bathroom and she had a sandlewood candle burning and gave me a massage. It was about 5 pm when that ended. It's now 1am and I still feel very relaxed and loose and can still smell the peppermint oil from the steam. Again, I don't know if people will think this is unmanly, but damn I feel good

Sounds like you have an awesome wife and should do something special and spontaneous in return.

Yep. I'm calling the bluff on this one.
Ok, I've never heard of sky fall so obviously I've never seen it. And call bluff all you like, I wasn't posting this to impress anyone. Just thought it was an awesome thing my wife did. And, she does know how to use a straight razor. She has had to shave her dad for years with one because he can't use his hands. But, maybe I should check out your movie to see what similarities you're talking about

So, what did she want?

Some might call it unmanly, but in my opinion your morals and values are what makes you a man, not your dress, hygiene etc. Alot of males seem to think having chest hair and stubble is what makes a man. They are the ones quick to judge, and question another. They are just overgrown boys to me.

I have longish hair and plan on it getting longer. I shampoo, condition and use a moroccan oil everytime I shower. Does that change my morals, integrity and dedication to my family?
@ chad, like your answer. You're absolutely right. @rick shelton, no idea. I like to think she was just being nice, but we'll see

Seems almost too good. But if it's wrong to enjoy her treatment of you (assuming it actually happened), then I wouldn't want to be right. 

Very awesome. You are a lucky man.
