"I love this blog series because I get to vent my life-long frustrations with the opposite sex, have fun, and be irrevocably politically incorrect. The irony is that since I know men better, I'm often more critical of my own gender than of those confounding women. And, in the case of this topic, it's a further iron that I'm far the bigger talker in my marriage."

“What a pain in the ass.” Trudy put her iPhone back into her pocketbook.

 

It wasn’t much of an expletive or very loud, but coming from the lips of my wife it was enough to make me look up from my snack, a piece of Trudy’s latest chocolate-pecan pie, and ask, “What is, Dear?”

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?
