So I emailed myself this fragment to my QL inbox because I heard a joke or a funny one-liner that started, “Women are like tea bags…” For the life of me I can’t remember the joke! I saw it on TV or maybe in a movie house which is why I emailed it myself so I could post it later. But alas, too much time has passed and I’ve lost it. Nate came up with this thought so I thought I’d post it…
The venerable Eleanor Roosevelt once said:
Women are like tea bags. You don’t know how strong they are until you put them hot water.
I know this isn’t the quote, quip, or joke I heard a few weeks ago but it’ll do for my Sunday post! It’s commonly accepted now that Eleanor Roosevelt was, in fact, a lesbian. Her family over the years has fought to conceal that in the courts but it’s true. She even had a “special friend” whom she cared deeply for and said so in letters live in the White House for a period of time. How cool is that?
