These things are not always the case for my gender, but I’ve been lucky enough to experience the pros to being a woman. It more than makes up for the cons (like recovery after childbirth!).

  1. The bond that only a mother can have with her child
  2. The wedding is ALL about the bride (well, it’s supposed to be!)
  3. It’s OK to cry during Extreme Makeover (it’s ok for guys to cry during it, too, but most don’t feel that way!)
  4. We don’t look weird and lumpy when we’re naked
  5. Using PMS as a reason for being crabby (of course, it’s thrown right back at us)
  6. We have a better selection of clothing
  7. When a ship sinks, we’re first off
  8. Chick Flicks (I still cry when I watch “The Notebook”)
  9. Ladies’ Night - I get in free, but the guys have to pay!
  10. We have no balls to re-adjust

Stuck for ideas? I found a pretty funny site here.
Extra credit this week (it would have been the topic this week, but I forgot that Thanksgiving was coming up!) is the annual “Ten Things You’re Thankful for”.

  1. A great, loving family
  2. My little baby boy
  3. Several aspects of my job - the people I work with, job security, my promotion and raise
  4. Having a great vacation
  5. New camera equipment - I got a couple new lense and flash. I’ll be a photo monster this year!
  6. My awesome house
  7. The internet
  8. My health
  9. The Sprout Network - Ben loves it, and it give sme a couple minutes to do housework
  10. Mineral powder foundation - a couple sweeps with a brush makes me feel made up, but not too made up for the day

Next week: 10 Best Games (video games, board games, card games, etc)
