Men are able to adapt to living in hovels and having nothing to eat by rice and beans, and they’re happy. Women, not so much. :)

I get up in a good mood...specially if I’m going golfing, fishing, hunting...my hubby will vouch... my 16yr old daughter...she has the *death to who talks to me* look in her eyes. She will chat joyfully to the animals however.
