Really Honey, Hanging with the Guys is Good For Me

I've never been a big "hang out with the guys" kinda guy. I like my guy friends, but I really don't need to hang out at a bar with them on a regular basis. In fact, my two best friends don't live in Madison. A quick phone call to either Keith or Larry as I'm running an errand usually does the trick for me. I don't have to spend too much time, but we get a chance to catch up and have a laugh.
However, I may be changing my tune soon. Apparently a study shows it's actually healthy for guys to hang out with other guys. An Oxford professor says that while "talking with mates" on a daily basis is useful, guys should hang out twice a week and "do stuff".
I bet when my wife sees this she'll be pushing me out of the house more or better yet she'll be looking for a study that says women need to hang out with their friends at least three nights a week.
