I share a home with three males,
and often feel odd-person-out.
Males and females are different in many ways,
and I'm not just talking an appreciation of farts.
In addition to the gender gap there are also generational divides
between Zippy and me, and our teenage sons.
Oldsters and youngsters don't always have the same outlooks,
and not just because certain people can stay up all night.
There's also the whole issue of us being individuals,
which fosters our unique perspectives on the world.
When I think about it this way, it's nearly a miracle
the four of us can agree on anything.
But we do.
And on days of particularly bumpy familial relations
(I'm looking at you, Today!),
I find it helpful to reflect on the list of our shared interests:
1) All four of us love Arrested Development!
2) All four of us love The Clash!
3) All four of us love Indian food!
4) All four of us love March Madness!
If you were to draw a Venn Diagram of this household,
those would be the four major points of intersection
between Zippy, Wildebeest, Zebu, and me.
And as you know, we are now in the month of March
which means we can focus on our shared passion for non-stop college basketball.
Save this family, March Madness!
