A poem of sorts (written by me) about safety pins:
Are safety pins safe
because their sharp point
gets tucked inside,
or do safety pins
make for safety
because they’re helpful
Let me be a safety pin,
my hateful point tucked in
and my kinder edge ready
to assist those who
need to be secured.
Some say that as we age, men grow more mellow, and women grow more mean.
I like the idea that men mellow out. There’s nothing more charming to a menopausal lady than a mellow man (who’s still up for plenty of fun despite his mellow manner).
But do women really get meaner?
Does meaner actually imply bolder? Feistier? More honest? More open?
Or does meaner mean MEAN?
Let’s take a Friend for the Ride poll! Do you feel yourself becoming more mellow or more mean?
A safety pin for your thoughts…
