Call It a Draw in the Battle of the Sexes


I often hear, or overhear, asĀ Oscar Wilde says, snippets of talk that can be snatched right out of the air, for free, to make a conversation in a story I’m writing. Last night, two subway riders: Young man: They told me I don’t understand because I can’t let go of my “male perspective.” (Quotation marks audible.)

Young woman: So did you learn anything?

Young man, after long pause: I don’t know. They sure thought they did.
