Yes, this is the facial expression Katherine makes on first dates. If any sad, widowed men are interested in spending time with a gal that will never inspire them to replace their hearing aid batteries, she’s single and living in Portland, Oregon!

Katherine is a recovering “Type A” personality. Always the overachiever, she reached midlife crisis ten years early and recently dumped her career in healthcare for the pursuit of happiness. When she is not contemplating her place in the Universe or reading Brené Brown, you can find her enjoying true crime stories at her local coffee shop. Oh, we’re not telling you what coffee shop. Though, she’s never had a stalker…

Writing and humor are a life-long passion for Katherine (she's too lazy to go skiing) and you are invited laugh along as she figures out this life and happiness thing.

Men age like a fine wine, or perhaps a European cheese. In stark contrast, women’s aging is described in terms of rotting fruit. These are the

Therefore, I’m initiating an assessment of your World Ruler job duties. You will be provided a copy of the final evaluation.

Let’s be clear - this is about everyday sexism. This isn't an invitation for dick pics. Nor do I want gigolos contacting me with 10% off coupons, nor do I want to receive dismembered male genitalia from an unidentified, prolific serial killer. To be honest, if it weren’t for sexism and its slew of demon monkeys called “Rape Culture”, “Glass Ceiling”, and “High Heels”, I’d be completely content living in a female body. The following are five fine sexist examples
