Less sublime, I admit, but I once had the exquisite pleasure of accepting in person a Reader's Choice Award sent through the mail to Mr. X. Y. Ohher from a major science fiction magazine.

Electric, really? I though we were talking about cars and driving.

Oh, I see. You've never had the Porsche experience. Or a real electric drive experience. That's the only explanation I can see for the massive bout of carsplaining you're begging for.

'90's Porsche, but still a Porsche. Meh. I've heard the newer ones are better, but no one is willing to let me drive theirs.
I've no doubt the Porsche electric would be a fun vehicle. But it is just too close to being one of these.

HIM, ernest clergyman: "Ah, Rev Rowen... I am so pleased to be here at your induction service. I am also a minister in your denomination, from several parishes over. This is a big event for you. Ministry must be very exciting for you. And confusing. You will soon get the hang of it. I have been a minister now for six years, so if you need advice , come and see me. Your first task here will be to meet the people and learn their names... So, been a minister long?""

ME, the woman clergy: "27 years."

I labeled it as mansplaining in my head....

I used to watch crap TV (home makeover shows etc) whilst ironing my husband's shirts. He used to explain that I'd rot my brain watching such rubbish, and say that he would never risk his own mighty brain by watching inane T.V. Eventually I realised that I was losing my husband's respect by watching mindless drivel whilst ironing his shirts. But I knew that I was incapable of watching anything intellectually challenging and ironing at the same time.

So I stopped ironing his shirts.

His mighty brain had genuinely not anticipated that as a solution to the problem. [Disappointed]

Love the sass, but I am curious-- what is this "ironing" of which you speak?

Perhaps it involves rolling clothing into a tight little ball, and hitting it with a golf club/iron?

It's derived from "irony", you know, that weird British thing.

I regard wrinkles as a fashion statement. (You are free to decide for yourself just what that statement might be.)
