Okay, my mind is a little bit mushy, but I've noticed something. Okay, my mind is always a little mushy, so I guess that's no excuse. And, besides, my husband, who does not have a mushy mind, noticed the same thing. We, like so many around the world, are enjoying watching the Olympics. Yesterday we watched in amazement as all of these women tore down a mountain on their skis and as all of these men did tricks on their snowboards. So here's the question. Why do the commentators (both male and female) call a 29-year-old female a "girl," a 25-year-old female a "youngster," and a 19-year-old male a "man?" Hmmmmm.
2-19-10 Update: Yippee skippy! We watched again last night and everyone was a "man" or a "woman." I'm glad that the other night might just have been a fluke.
