Excellent parsing of words.

Said by a mom at school to her third-grade daughter:

"It's not about him being a man, it's about him having a skill I don't have."

I was so excited by that phraseology I grabbed for a paper and pen to write it down.  In my ideal world, people would have skills and the gender of the person performing a skill wouldn't matter.


  1. That's really cool. Way to go, mom. Although I sort of wonder what she was talking about, haha.

  2. That is a very nice way of putting it.
