I don't know why these words leapt from the page as I read them. Perhaps because this is the shortest, gentlest, wisest summation of the difference between men and women I've read in a while.
Our hero, Amir, and his wife Soraya are seeing a fertility specialist, who says, "A man's plumbing is like his mind: simple, very few surprises. You ladies, on the other hand...well, God put a lot of thought into making you."
I say, Amen to that. And may He bless the differences. I love the straightforwardness of men.
