Slang, Just for Men

Reading the neighborhood paper this morning, one of my breakfast table mates commented on an article:

“This guy is eighty years old. Hmmmm.  Just for Men Brown. Wow. And he’s still boxin’. Can you believe it?”

My first thought was the term “boxin'” is slang for using boxed hair color, such as Just for Men.

Oh.

The article actually was about an eighty-year-old man who is still a pugilist.

I leaned over the breakfast table to see the photo of the man in the paper. Just for Men on his locks, too. Yeah. He’s still boxin’.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. I bet when he works up a sweat a trail of brown hair dye begins streaming down his forehead. His opponent probably thinks he has struck a blow that has opened up a head wound.
