I’ll have to tell you, and I think you may know this by now,
I ain’t no typical woman… and I think I get that from my parents. Having a spotless house isn’t the most important thing in the world…clean? yes! Spotless? No… As my mom used to say “We don’t live in a show house!” Have a read, I think you will enjoy!

A Better Man

On a typical day, men spend a third as much time cleaning as women. Does that make women beacons of cleanliness, while men are genetically unable to see the messiness in their midst?
