Mensch (n.) = an all around good guy
The key to being a Mensch is doing something for others without expecting anything in return. Today, Valentine's Day, is a perfect excuse to try out your skills. You see, for many reasons, girls love the Valentine's Day. It doesn't have to be your girlfriend, or your mom. Just wish every girl you see a happy V-Day. You'll be well on your way to Menschdom.
Looking for more examples on how to be a Mensch? Guy Kawasaki recently posted five simple rules.
Still confused? Here are some real-life Mensches:
1. Jack Bauer. Enough Said. The man would do anything for his country, no matter the consequence.
2. George O'Malley. What he did for Dr. Bailey was pure Mensch. They don't teach that kind of response. By the way, did you notice that Bailey's son's middle name is George?
3. David M. Rogers. 2001 Michigan Grad. This kid oozes Menschiness. Here's a quick bio: Who is David Rogers? David is an honest man with simple pleasures and lots of generosity. For instance, let's say you just started college...and you were getting your dorm room all set up...and you mentioned in passing..."man, I should get some of those yaffa blocks." Dave is the guy who would magically appear later that day with Jaffa blocks. Ladies, he's a keeper. The easiest way to his heart? Take him to a Cubs/Tiger game and get him a half dozen or so hot dogs. One other thing for the ladies to know...Dave loves to cuddle!
