np: some people (i.e. black) can't wash their hair on a daily basis. I have a relaxer in my hair, and when I wash my hair, it's a huge ordeal. I can't just wash it and let it air dry OR wash it and blow dry it. It's damaging to my hair b/c of the relaxer. Hence, I wash my hair once a week whether I work out or not. I usually don't work out so its not an issue. Hope this helps you understand a different perspective. [ Reply | More ]

I don't get love notes or have sex. But I do get affectionate friendship notes from DH and the ability to raise beautiful children in something other than squalor. They will all be able to choose the college they want. They all can do whatever they want. I have an unlimited vacation and spending budget and the house is mine.

(Gay dad) Really depends on where you live and what your family is like. Some professions wouldn't go well with being openly gay (even in NY). The world is far from tolerant. I feel fine in NYC, but you go a few states down and it is a whole different world. [ Reply | More ]
