Food for thought – for men only!
Most men I know dread a trip to the grocery store. They usually end up aimlessly wandering the aisles looking for items on their list from coffee to cucumbers. Now, the perfect solution – A MAN AISLE!! The clever grocery owner of Westside Market in New York, 43 year old Ian Joskowitz, a man of course, has rearranged his store to create an aisle totally dedicated to the needs of men.
I first read about this in a N.Y. Post article inviting men to “stock up their man caves!”
Eyewitness News also had a televised feature segment at the store. Their cameras scanned the Man Aisle which included such necessities as beer, coffee, condoms, Tabasco, Doritos, Mac N Cheese, steak sauce and much more! A few customers were interviewed about what else should be included. An elderly woman said “vitamins” and a young man voted for “pesto”.
“It’s your essentials,” explained Mr. Joskowitz. “It’s your water, alcohol, soaps, shampoos, deodorants, razors. If you’re going to have some guys over to watch a game, you can pretty much stand here — not move two feet — and get your beer, barbecue sauce, chips, whatever. It’s all right here!”
Think about what you would put in your Man Aisle. Hopefully one will be coming soon to a grocery store near you! Just for fun, I did a small survey and received responses ranging from lots of vegetables for making healthy shakes to erotic items to fuel moments of passion. Maybe even a few copies of Shades of Grey and a necktie or two? No Viagra, it’s prescription only!
I was thinking that gifts for the special woman (or women) in your life might be a worthwhile addition to the aisle. Godiva chocolates, red roses and good champagne are usually helpful tools to inspire romantic or erotic moments!
But beware if calcium supplements are in the aisle. It could cause some troubling side effects with your sweetheart.
And finally, it just occurred to me – this might be a great place for single women to meet a guy! I may have to investigate further.
I asked Dr. DeFelice his opinion and he suggested having a women’s aisle next to the men’s with a doorway connecting them both and a sign-up sheet for shopping together. Matches made in the Man Aisle might be made in Heaven!
