I know what you mean, how some women assume that because you're also a

female, you are of course interested in discussing douching and

dating, makeup and men. I once nearly ruptured a gusset trying to get

through a staff meeting where the other two managers launched a

discussion of fingernails and dreams instead of finances. I am MUCH

smarter than I was back then. These days I'd tell them that I dreamed

I hung them both from the ceiling and pulled out their fingernails and

now could we please get back to discussing this month's financial

report before I start looking for the rope.

Annnnna, my love, you're a genious not to muddle too much in those

murky waters. People who get all turned inward eventually end up with

their heads up their asses.

How many year's subscriptions of insecurity could you sell with THAT

message, Dave? The product is inhappiness, not happiness, no matter

what the chirpy cover promises. And the marketing tool is confusion,

not clarity.


If most women thought they were FULLY CAPABLE of getting along in the

world, those magazines would be burned for the trash that they are.

The bottom-line reason that many women can be hard to talk to and

appreciate (besides their obvious PINKNESS!!!!!) is that they reek of

fear and insecurity. (I know, I know, most men do too, Random. It's

just that I was taught the female form of insecurity and despise it's

perfumed stink.)
