Todd and I often give each other grief about doing things that make us lose our guy cards. It is usually him. He will cry watching The Bachelor or Dancing With the Stars and confess and lose his card. I may have accidentally made the biggest guy card violation yet though.

When we were getting ready to go to Mexico, I realized I had no shorts. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy. My wife made me go shopping for the trip and I found a couple pair of shorts at Macy's that seemed manly enough for me to wear. They seemed a bit long but I thought they would just look like skateboarder shorts.

I wore them in Mexico and had some people say they looked like the shorts the kids from Peanuts wore. I looked in the mirror and it hit me....these look like Capri pants. I , Brian Gary, a big, burly, long haired, Harley riding, tattooed dude, was wearing Capri's. I bowed my head in shame. I thought only European men and the guys from Wham! wore them and here I was sporting a pair. My wife says they are not really Capri pants but are long shorts. I know she is just trying to make me feel better. What do think? Are they Capri pants?
