Coming Clean

Apparently the picture of naked men in my last post caused a bit of a stir, which really surprised me – I mean, it’s not like that’s the most shocking thing you’ve ever seen on the Internet, right?

Plus, I didn’t exactly go out of my way to find a naked picture of the Chili Peppers. They’ve been naked on their album covers and in concerts. Those guys must have spent half their lives naked. Let’s see you find a picture of Anthony Kiedis with his shirt on.

Anyway, when the comments started mentioning Vogue magazine, that’s when I felt the slope getting a lot more slippery. It seemed only a matter of time before I would be “outed” by suspicion and rumor.

So in the interest of full disclosure, I have something I’d like to get off my chest. This might be hard.

You see, ever since I was young, I’ve had this preference...

It made me a bit unusual, but it seemed natural to me...

Sometimes I’m reluctant to admit it, because I don’t know how people will react...

But...

Here goes...

I...

REALLY LIKE THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS!!!

And women. Maybe not in that order. But that’s it.

And I’m comfortable enough in my sexuality that I can even agree with my wife when she noted yesterday, “Those guys are all pretty ripped.” (Um, on second thought...forget that last sentence. Just remember the paragraph before it.)

So I hope that clears up the issue for anyone who was wondering. Thanks for understanding. I feel much better now.

(Gee, that was easier than I thought...)

Okay, I'll admit this. Until I saw your post I'd never heard of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm a musical dud. I prefer quiet, so I only hear music when my sons or husband play it. I think I missed most of the 80s and 90s in music, and my parents didn't let us buy albums, we listened to the radio - their station! I heard a lot of Roger Miller, Nat King Cole, Frank S., etc when I was growing up. I still really like American Idol though.

"give it away give it away give it away now"

I am a big Chili Peppers fan as well. backofpack, (Michelle),in the comment above is sooo old and lame. I can say that about her and only get a minor roll of the eyes from her.

Nah, they are not all "that ripped", I've seen better:) But reading Rob's lil' song line allowed me to figure who they are - I do like them somewhat, but never remember names of any groups.
OK, they are not bad looking boys...Can they do a pull-up, lift legs 90 degrees and swing them side to side for like 5 min? I saw a guy in his late 40s at the gym doing it and almost died from wanting to see HIS abs!
