Birth of a genre

Just so you all know, the interesting mail I get sometimes causes interesting things to happen inside my head. Here's the latest example.

A reader sent me a note that basically said "I think you write chick flicks for guys."

Now that's an interesting way to characterize what I do.

So what would you call that?

You couldn't just call it "guy flicks" because that just doesn't roll off the tongue, you know?

"Male memoirs?"

I don't think so.

"Dude tales?"

Also doesn't roll off the tongue well.

In fact, the only thing I dan think of that does roll off the tongue is ...

* sigh *

Dick flicks.

* sigh *

Perhaps it isn't quite yet time to invent a new genre.

Thanks for reading.
