I disagree that the balance of responsibility between men and women is weighted more heavily on women due to men’s passive or lazy tendencies because especially in a family situation, there are too many variables for the blame to rest on just one gender.There certainly are circumstances where, especially in a household, passiveness or laziness is the driving force behind imbalance of roles between men and women.
She has more friends, fewer worries, and way more fun.Fast forward several years and they’ve reconnected one summer day.While I liked Josh, I didn’t feel a connection with Hazel due to feeling slightly annoyed during her sections.This is how I feel about you if you drive your car past a long line of vehicles waiting to exit an expressway so you can butt in at the front…Or if, when you stop at a red light, you immediately look down at your phone, and it apparently doesn’t occur to you to glance up at the light from time to time in case for some crazy reason – who knows, in this crazy world?

From Publisher: Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Dave Barry turns to his best dog, Lucy, to learn how to live his best life.

Overall, this wasn’t the book for me but it may be for you, especially if you enjoy lots of quirkiness and drama in your romances.
In this “little gem” (Washington Independent Review of Books), Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist and New York Timesbestselling author Dave Barry learns how to age happily from his old but joyful dog, Lucy.
I read this in a restaurant waiting for a friend (of course I had my kindle in my purse) and I was cracking up.
