I just cancelled my subscription to NYT. I've had it with them. Goodbye crossword, it's been nice for a good long while now.

Fortunately, I'm too lazy to care.

Straight from my late great grandmother: a little wisdom on Marriage that will never be found in the New York Times:

Forget 50/50. That's divorce thinking. Each try to give 100%. Since no one can actually give a full 100%, you'll end up getting to share a total of somewhere between 100% and 198%. That's a lot. Now give it your best, share, and learn to be grateful.

I was going to write a response, but I don't give a damn.

I noted that tag also, and it took me a while to figure out why -- and I'd read the linked blog post!

Me to wife: What do you think of this post?

Wife: Did you clean the gutters yet?


Meade received the same advice I did, and it has worked here for 35 years.

Women do think differently though, at least in terms of scheduling. The last 20 laps of a NASCAR race is not the correct time to wash windows.

NYT sexist.

Nice analysis by Jac -- one more point I'd add: In the marriage of professionals (the example is physician married to college professor), the woman's job may be more flexible because the woman is likely to be younger than the man.

Younger means lower income and less responsibility; thus, more flexibility.

The path to equity is clear: women have to marry down. But they keep choosing not to, the elitists.

I should care about this but screw it.

Henry, I hear you can buy a dilapidated, abandoned man from the City for a dollar and renovate and rehabilitate him yourself. I'm gonna get in on that.

I remove 100% of the spiders and other weird bugs that get into the house. (And the baby geckos . . . I think those are kinda cute actually, little, they eat bugs, kinda lizardy). My wife won't share this chore. I must protest.

I love that dad guy.

One starts to suspect that there is a "shorts exemption" when the guy is cool, not fat, not old etc...

I love the picture too, but not too sure how detached my judgement is since I have three little girls.

Ann Althouse said...

That guy has so much going for him ... including the obvious love of the photographer as well as the little girl, the artiness of the black and white and the light and shadow and the fact that he's at home. If he were walking around outside, it would be different.

What about the tatoo? Is it fake latin?
