A Guy needs a room of his own and Mark Twain once said "There ought to be a room in every house to swear in" Its dangerous to have to repress an emotion like that,,He added.
The Great American humorist may have not invented the "Man Cave", but even "He" realized more than 130 years ago , that men needed a place to go where they can do manly things.
Twain spoke the Prophetic words after he constructed a billiards room on the top floor of the Hartford Connecticut home, where he lived in 1871-91.
The room was off limits to his wife and children, and reserved for the writer and his male guests....to shoot pool, smoke cigars and enjoy their favorite libations. Twain also used the room as a retreat.....a place to write and hide from the domestic chaos on the other floors of the house. For myself ,, it is a Haven!!
In the years since..and especially over the last decade..Man caves have exploded into a cultural phenomenon. Millions of men today have transformed ,basements garages and sheds into their own personal testaments to testosterone.
So the question....which is it for the men here? We all know what is in these rooms from our Hobbies to sports regalia. Out of the whole house why is it so satisfying to be in a smaller room...or is it a hidden cove in a mans mind that makes it that way? As I said stated above,, for me its a haven others it may be a shrine. Lets hear some opinions. Regards Larry
