Chapter 21

One of the classic differences of the sexes is that men don't like to talk all that much, and women can, and do, yammer all day long. I have two takes on this:

One, if you're a man and your friend/girlfriend/wife is in the motormouth mode, don't complain. Be kind. Your gift to her is to let her do it. It makes her happy.

Two, now that everyone (except me) is chained to their portable telephones, we're seeing men (more or less) walking around chatting with their friends. This is another artifact of the modern feminization of men.
