I'm not the only female on this mailing list, just the mouthiest. And why
is that? Because this is the only place where I can pontificate to a bunch
of guys without being interrupted.
In light of what's been said about why cars are female, my car must be male.
1. it leaves a mess wherever it goes,
2. it thinks I should spend all my time taking care of it,
3. it thinks I should spend all my money on it,
4. it drinks too much, and
5. no one can carry on a conversation around it for all the noise it makes.
I could think of lots more, but I'll give your egos a rest. ;-)
