I’ve been wanting to do a strip on the fragile emotions of (little) girls and the misguided Mark being way too blunt with his critique of something they’ve done.  It happens to me all the time.  Even being well practiced (as all men think they are) in the ways of women, I find I have to take a step back before I speak so that someone doesn’t storm up the stairs, crying.  As you can guess, that carpet is well worn on those stairs.
