Quote for the day

If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write something worth reading or do things worth the writing.

Writing Prompt: Gender Bender

Have you ever had an argument with a member of the opposite sex and thought to yourself, “if he/she were a woman/man, they’d understand”? I know I’ve often thought during a discussion with hubby that I may be overreacting due to some hormonal imbalance and then thought, that my point of view would be clear as day if he were a girl. “It’s a girl thing.”,  I’ve often said when he looks at me like I’m from outer-space. Sometimes I think I’d like to understand the ability to watch sport for hours on end, get the appeal of strip clubs and be able to go into a shop, find what I want in ten minutes and go directly home without a moment’s thought to anything but what sport might be on TV later….

Just for a laugh, have a dialogue with someone.  Try to write a scene from the other side and see what happens. For instance, have a guy say something like, “buy they’re great shoes. They go with everything. You can never have too many shoes.” How weird does that feel?

I apologies in advance if anyone is offended by my sweeping stereotypes, but these don’t just turn up out of nowhere. Just have a giggle. ..
