On your scale how does 13/21 compute?

I have 14, which makes sense in modern society where there is division of labor.

Thank-you, I no longer feel inadequate and can now resume my day! lol

13 out of 21 means that you have work to do...

I score 21/21 not because I'm cool, but because I made up the list....

Please send me instructions on how to set a bone, in the meantime, I'm making up my own list! :-)

"We have women in the military, but they don't put us in the front lines. They don't know if we can fight, if we can kill. I think we can. All thegeneral has to do is walk over to the women and say, "You see the enemy over there? They say you look fat in those uniforms." --Elayne Boosler
