Menopause. It basically just sucks. Except for finally being able to stop family planning or wondering if that missed period is a “happy accident” or just from stress, there is not too much that is pleasant about having to go through a physical, emotional, and hormonal (abrupt) change on nature’s clock.

I don’t make a habit of referring to private places as your “thing” but, for the purposes of the title and the unisex applications of this post, it works. Don’t worry, I won’t get graphic. Descriptive yes, but no overly striking images of lesions will be found here. I will leave it to Google Images
I have a lot a friends of varying ages and career paths. Some have children and some don’t. Some will one day, and some won’t. This post is for those who only see kids as time sucking, money grubbing, competitors for your life goals. They are so much more than that. Here we go… With

If you give your kid a car and keys (puberty) but don’t teach them how to drive, they may just teach themselves.
I still remember that the first movie sex scene I ever saw was when Terri’s husband bumped and grinded his cousin-in-law up against a wall in Soul Food. This was such pivotal scene that almost got Miles from Fake After Seven killed! It also felt so “hard-core” to me back then. I mean, I was
Hair today, gone tomorrow… or at least we would hope, in certain places. Even the three little pigs said, “Not by the hair of my chiny chin chin.” The big bad wolf could have made a different kind of “killing” if he knew how to thread. Women generally have 2 types of problems with hair.
