As one of our readers rightly pointed out, of course a “mancave “isn’t synonymous with “junk pile”. In fact, The perfect mancave is kept meticulously clean! I can’t say that I have a mancave myself, but in the places in the house where I am solely in charge, i.e. my office and the basement, I have to admit it looks a bit like a dump. At least in my office I get a cleaning fit about twice a year or so. But the basement is a different story … Well, but I guess everybody needs a “buffer” of some sort, where they can just drop stuff and have it out of sight. Maybe in retirement I’ll get around to finally clean it up and maybe even turn it into a mancave. Too bad that I won’t be able to go full Chuck-style, because the ceilings are definitely too low for a bouncy castle.
