Might vs. Bright
My wife says women are smarter than men. As evidence, she points out how men will strain their backs and struggle mightily to pick up everything they see into one big load and start walking without even considering where they’re going to unload their burden. Women, she says, will assess the situation, decide where they want to put things, make a space for the items, divide the items into two or three easy-to-carry loads, and maybe even grab a dolly to help. She still doesn’t get it. It’s simple. Men, young and old, pick up heavy loads and hold them for long periods of time to show that they are strong and that they can do it – to the rest of the world, including women – and to themselves.
