55. You don't know that
Edited on Tue Feb-27-07 04:53 PM by Mojorabbit
they were lazy or stupid. My husband fell off the roof once. Impaled his arm on the iron railing.Blood everywhere. I picked him up with one hand carried him in, stripped him and packed his wound and only then realized what I had done. Adrenalin rush. He weighs a ton more than I do. I luckily did all the right things but was not thinking at all. Autopilot.
I will not judge these women. I was not there.
