Maybe I have a problem. As I submitted the firefighter story (More info to come on my blog) I started wondering what it was about these guys that make me automatically think *Hero Material*. I came up with a few ideas. Let me know if I'm way off base here.
First off, a man in a uniform, even a mall cop, shows that he's a) got a job, and b) is responsible
Secondly, he is usually clean (very important) But, if he's got a little dirt and sweat, we don't mind too much, right ladies? Can't protect the people without a bit of grime.
Third, a man in uniform tells us that he isn't afraid of commitment. He can commit four years of his life to serve our country, surely that says something.
Fourth, I think any man in uniform exudes a degree of confidence. Which is dead sexy. Okay, some turn a little bit cocky (I'm talking to you, Mr. Cruise) but that starts to tie in to the bad boy appeal, which is a whole 'nother post.
Okay, your turn. Did I miss something? Have any favorite uniforms?
