how i teach men to apologize

by Nanette Bellman

she said,
            "i'm jealous, no one apologizes to me..."
i said,
            "be angry with a knife in your hand."

Hi Nanette, Good one. No wonder it works well. :) Cause that makes the guy in front of ya feel threaten or worried or even a little scarced. :) That sure gets his attention. :) Ouch. Men, are bad about that. They don't think or feel they done anything to apologize for. And they usually don't.

in a Tony Perkins-dressed-up-like-mama-wig and a you-don't-want-to-check-into-the Bates-Motel kind of way, this poem is very cutting...pardon the pun
