Men Are Pigs
How can I make a statement that brash, you say? Simple - I know some men. And they are, inherently, pigs. Not necessarily in a bad way, more in an unavoidable, piteous way. The inspiration for this column, curiously enough, came to me in the dead of night. I was lying in bed (no, this is not going where you think it is), and just before I fell asleep, I heard a couple of guys walking down my street, talking. Their conversation was only murmurs until they were right below my open window, when I suddenly heard them quite clearly. I only heard one sentence, but I didn't really want to hear any more, anyway. One of the guys said to the other, "What I don't understand is how a girl can eat a one-pound box of candy and gain 10 pounds." Now, to be fair, there was a legitimate amount of confusion in his voice. The poor guy's mind was boggled.
