You may have noticed that women apologize a lot. A whole lot. While it's appropriate to say, "sorry!" when we've, say, stepped on another's toe, apologizing for being ourselves hurts us and, by way of example, others.
I think I'm genetically predisposed to turn into a mushy-headed pumpkin by 9 p.m.. I used to feel dorky for wanting to eat dinner at 5 p.m. or donning PJs when "hipper" friends were taking pre-going out naps. Not anymore.
