Maybe it's because I was raised around women and not men, but over the years my BEST friends have been females. Sure, I had male colleagues and golfing partners but they never taught me to sew, cook or dance. The down side is that I am not Mr. Fixit. I don't know a hammer from a hack saw. Some of my best golf partners were women. Even now at my age I find that I enjoy conversing more with women than men. I was married twice and both wives were truly my Best Friend. I miss them both.
