It's a good 'un, isn't it? I've been lucky in my guests all month!

What an excellent essay. I thought she knocked it out of the house by pointing out how we not only dismiss the women who are too "mean" but also the ones who were too "nice."

(occurs to me that "knocked it out of the house" is an incorrect sports metaphor :-P It should be "knocked it out of the park." God knows what you're doing knocking things out of the house…)

I got the just. (And most sports metaphors are impenetrable to me anyway!)

(What, you never play indoor baseball? Just be glad the window was open when she knocked it out of the house. *grin* )

It's an automatic home run when you hit it out of the house :D

Nothing ever seems to change - any excuse to silence us will do. Our Kari's a corker, isn't she!

I'd forgotten that. Thank you for reminding me.
