Women are really accomplishing great things. After all the historic struggles women now hold positions of power virtually all over the globe. They excel in so many areas. I spent time this evening with a group of such women and wanted to share it with you.
Following our summer hiatus, the regular Friday Happy Hour has resumed. We have gathered together a group of ladies who are successful in multiple fields. One might expect that we could easily discuss current events, world affairs, politics, cures for rare diseases, maybe world peace.....
The main topic this evening you might ask? Olives - are they a fruit or a vegetable? Yes, that's what we talked about! Sad but true. There were several lines of thought. It's a vegetable because its plant flowers? (Not sure that is indeed a fact.). It's a fruit because it has a pit? It's a fruit because it grows on a tree? Can you eat them directly from the tree? Or does some step have to occur in between picking from the tree and eating? Is there a fancy gourmet olive oil store in a nearby town? How much fancy gourmet olive oil does one actually need?
It appears that olives are indeed a fruit that is often considered a vegetable because of how it is consumed. So says google.
Aren't power-women fascinating? Lol And shockingly we were not even drinking martinis at the time.
Oh, and I didn't call the phone company back today. I just couldn't deal with it 2 days in a row.
