This question came to Zamboni last night at my show at Noh Space in the beautiful city of San Francisco, coupled with a second question, “where do babies come from?”
As to the first question, it is a simple answer, but not easy to admit, as I am coming to this answer not just as the great Zambones but as a man, man.
With my big wooden stick, I spend much happy hours in the forest of Estonia hunting badger, squirrel, and chipmunk, honoring these animals by hunting with so difficult a method and eating all I kill. More than the taste of badger -kind of like chicken- I must admit it is the chase I love. Yes, I also love the chase, not just of the small furry ones, but also of romance and the women. Or men, Zamboni play National and American League.
Why is this? Men love the chase because it is our nature. It is in our nature to hunt and chase and pursue.You, the question asker, must remember this, and more importantly accept it. Do not ask of a scorpion to snuggle with you then be angered when it stings you, why? It is a scorpion; it is only doing what nature tells it to.
Men love the chase, accept this, and expect this. When and if you find one that also enjoys the minivan and the laundry, be that much more grateful for it. Also, give them a chase, a long chase- you can enjoy this too then!
Now the second question, about where babies are coming from:

Oh Zamboni….how can I not respond?
No, no silly Zamboni not epic. Sure, you are right to say that the hunt is natural to men. A man is born with a competitve drive, a need to chase and catch his prey and yes, that is fun and to some women, myself included, super sexy.
However, some men choose the hunt as a life style and thats not epic, it’s kinda sad. The reason why some men go hunting repeatedly is because it’s easy. There is no real pressure to be successful on the hunt. Or more importantly to the man, no real risk of failure. The man can just call back the beagles at any time and the hunt is over. While on the hunt the man can create the perfect woman and be the perfect man…in his mind. And because the hunt ends so quickly, no one, not even the hunter, has to realize that he is not so perfect….again, easy.
You are right when you say if a woman finds a man willing to go the distance, she should appreciate it. Catching your prey and keeping her… NOT easy….but it is epic and in the end, way more sexy. I heard someone say once- If you want an interesting relationship, stay in it. I understand that now.
If you want interesting, stay in it- that is worth more than Zamboni’s answer..
