A good friend called me last Thursday night from her daughter's top-secret-mandatory parents-of-little-gymnasts meeting. My good pal is so
not a "gymnastics mom" that she brings lots of reading material and figures anything really important will be given to her in writing. (Like: Your child could be seriously injured at any time. We are not responsible. Please sign this waiver.) So the other mothers are scribbling furiously in their notebooks, raising hands and asking questions while my pal flips through her Atlantic Monthly. After laughing out loud a few times (and getting glaring looks from the gym-mombots) she got up to call me. Her whispered voicemail basically said, "Read this article. Let's discuss."
So, being the
person with no life
good friend that I am, I immediately went and read the article.
Interestingly, the next day I was looking on WebMD for some information on facial twitches (don't ask), and there was another article about the Atlantic Monthly article
. It's hit a nerve, clearly. And I have to wonder if it's hit a nerve among men, although I doubt it. Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert! Do you suppose men considering "settling" without the ominous ticking of a biological expiration date?
So, if you're still dedicated enough to listen to the crazy woman formerly known as Teacher Lady, go have a read and then post your thoughts. Lord knows I have some. So you show me yours and I'll show you mine.
