I am not married but I pay attention (maybe one precludes the other shocked ). If it is good to learn from your mistakes, it is even better to learn from other people's mistakes. wink

"MS may refer to:

Ms., an honorific title for women"

That makes it sound pretty awesome. laugh

26. Be right about anything. Even when right, you're wrong. But If you then allow her to do the wrong thing and it comes back to bite her, then it's your fault for allowing the wrong thing to happen.
27. Asking why she "needs" an item.
28. Leaving a pair of shoes in the wrong location, and then when she calls you on it, asking her why her breakfast dishes are sitting dirty in the sink 12 hours later.

Sure it can. But but this thread is about Mrs. Gilmore, not some random woman who happens to share his name!
