The Big Guy and I joined two other couples for dinner last night at the new home of our close friends. In the normal style of these get-togethers, the women gravitated toward the kitchen where we stood around the table chatting while our guys grabbed beers and settled in to talk in the adjoining family room.
On the way home, we discussed some of the information exchanged at the get-together. I definitely believe the women discussed more substantial and useful subjects. Long referred to as "the fairer sex," perhaps we should use the term "wiser sex."
For a few examples of female wisdom, read on ...
Joe was a single guy, living at home with his father and working in the family business. When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sick father died, he decided he needed a wife with whom to share his fortune.
One evening at an investment seminar he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few years, my father will pass and I'll inherit his large fortune."
Impressed, the woman took his business card. Three months later, she became Joe's stepmother.

A friend and her mom went out for breakfast at a local eatery where the special was "two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99." Her mom told the waitress, "That sounds good but I don't want the eggs."
"Then, I'll have to charge you $4.75 because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned.
"So," Mom exclaimed, "I have to pay for NOT taking the eggs?" After a second's thought, Mom said "I'll take the special."
"How do you want your eggs?"
"Raw and in the shell," her mother replied.
She took the eggs home and used them in a batch of brownies later that day!
