I guess I'm not as grown up as you either. I think your Bible study member's actions speak so loudly that I would never be able to respect whatever she had to say about scripture or in prayer. I...

Sounds like Senior Superlatives in high school, an old and generally unkind tradition that most schools have thankfully eliminated!

Many of us here have survived divorce and actually ended up happier than we were in that marriage. I hope that happens for you. This is one of the best articles I've read about women and divorce.

Even linguists disagree.

Many linguists and dictionaries disagree with him about niche. The anglicized nitch is given preference over the frencified neesh.

The same is true of foyer. Foyer gets preference over foyee.
