The indomitable wt visited me at work and we hit Starbucks. (I know, sometimes the glamour - it's just too much.) wt zinged me with the quote of the day.
(wt tells me about some ridiculous interaction with a chiquita)
maisnon (stunned): I'll never understand people
wt: You'll never understand WOMEN. Because you're a DUDE!
maisnon (stunned silent - for once!)
wt: Well, you have dude emotions.
maisnon: I don't think it's that at all - I think it's that I'm an optimist and an idealist. And fundamentally, I just don't GET that people don't treat each other well, or with the other person's interest in mind.
(And, that latter part? Yeah, it doesn't get more "chick" than that.)
