(Remember… I said Thursdays would be all about ripping stuff from other other places if I couldn’t find someone to guest blog or interview?)
Well, since I committed to that lofty goal of a daily blogging schedule just yesterday, I didn’t have time to recruit anyone. And frankly, I think this just might be more fun anyway…
Now, back to my…um…guest. When I stumbled upon Francisco’s site, I found that he had created ebooks, mp3s, and multiple vidcasts of his program: “How to Get Your Power Back After She Breaks Up.” I wanted to give him a shout-out and mad props for being so enterprising! And what better way to do that than to blog about him?
I think the thing that really sold me on Francisco’s system was his accent—how perfect is that? Love advice from a guy who doesn’t want other men to be stuck in “leembo” after a relationship break-up. His advice is very sage: “You have battle plahn…Your life ezz under attack.”
What made me realize that he really is providing a valuable service to the broken-hearted men out there is this testimonial: “It was the slap in the face and kick to the balls that helped me see where I was.”
Ouch. I guess reality does more than bite. There’s nothing quite like a solid bitch-slap and a game of testicle hacky sack to get your emotions back on the right track.
I find it curious though. Does that mean when a man experiences a break-up, it hurts his face and his genitals? Hmmmm… Pride and penis pain. A veritable alliteration of romantic injury.
Of course, I would be remiss in my entertainment duties if I didn’t post this video…
The only part of the whole thing that gives me serious pause is when Francisco says, “What you must do is trust me.”
My Daddy always told me never to trust a man who says: “Trust me.” And definitely not if he winks when he says it.
