My wonderful b/f sent this to me this morning. We don't know who the author is. At the bottom of the e-mail it said author unknown. This just about brought tears to eyes because it rings so true for me... and I just felt it had to be shared....
-----------------------------------

THE ONE FLAW IN WOMEN:

By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart-and she will do everything with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride."

The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing."

And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH

Two things wrong with this e-mail:

1.) It's a chain-letter, vainly trying to disguise itself as something worth reading.

And 2.) :puke:

Probably a residual optimism.

That said, you're 'new' here yet: given time, I'm sure you'll adjust to the way of things.

Utterly nauseating and also blatantly untrue- how anyone can find the sweeping generalisation and ensuing rubbish "sweet" is beyond me. Though I suppose I'm just cynical and bitter, and therefore I can act as proof that that message is complete b******s.:rolleyes:

An unmitigated pile of banal horsesh*t; the likes of which I have seldom witnessed before, and sincerely hope that I need never do so again.

I'm sorry, but what this chain e-mail implies, is that women are better than men; that's what is known as 'sexism'. Being as there are only men and women, in terms of adult human beings, to imply that women are great, is to imply that men are just as ungreat; greatness being relative, and all. Besides: aren't many of these attributes also applicable to men? I, personally, can be happy to hear about births or weddings, would be happy to go without so my family could have, would go to the doctor with a nervous friend, cheer when friends get awards, etc; women don't hold a monopoly on decency and compassion, you know? Plus, I think there's a bit more that makes the world 'turn', than a woman's heart; a lot more, in fact.

In conclusion, I would say that this is yet another pile of s**te that serves to try to inflate the image of women, and provides immature girls with yet another reason to convince themselves they're worthy of 'princess' status. Reading rubbish like this makes me yearn to be doing something less painful, such as castrating myself with a pair of rusty hedgeclippers, before putting my now amputated testicles into a blender, and serving them to myself for breakfast, through a straw, up my left nostril.

But, it is sweet that your boyfriend sent it to you, and, to that end, I can see, to an extent, why you'd want to share it with us, so please don't take any of the above personally (seriously).
