I know this post is going to get me in trouble, but the secret needs to get out. No man is safe until it does.
There is a false stereotype out there, and it involves none other than this demure, apparently sweet Southern Ladies who present themselves as saintly little creatures.
This is, quite simply, a LIE! They use that sweet little accent to get men to do things for them, and the repayment? They viciously rip him to shreads! They leave men quaking, no longer even able to form coherent words, much less complete sentences!
What brings on this tirade, you ask? Let me explain.
There has been a disturbance in the force here in Cincinnati. Two long lost Southern Bells have been reunited. As I said above, this is NOT a good thing for any male around!
The 'host' is a good friend of mine, on her own, she is formidable. However, I learned as I spoke with her this morning, that when paired with 'the Visitor,' HELL is breaking loose! Even the Devil is scared!
The 'Visitor' asked to speak with me on the phone. Less than two minutes later, I was quaking, fear oozing from every pore. This is from a woman I have not yet even met, and I am scared.
Now, lest you think I am just a chicken and don't know how to deal with women after 12 years in primarily male dominated arenas (8 in sem, 2 teaching in all boys school, and 2 as vocation director), I need to remind you that I had three, count em: THREE! older sisters growing up. While my dear sisters are all formidable in their own right, they stand no chance against these two supposed 'Southern Bells.'
The secret is now out, gentlemen. Avoid these apparently sweet and innocent creatures called 'Southern Bells!' They will destroy you!
