Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

Boys clothes are NOT cut differently than girls clothes.

I can.  {Snort!}  I have several advanced degrees.  More enlightening to me on this subject is the beloved man I'm married to.  He has many advanced degrees and even puts the Masters to good use.  But he's a genius and didn't get one of those one-year MBAs. ;)  So, very much like Jamblessed's brother I'm sure.  She knows of what she speaks...

A little brag about how particular boys clothes are meant to be.  My little bitty boy goes to camp and today, after camp, I watched his private lesson in his crisp tennis whites.  And there's just nothing like it!  He looked adorable, the other boys on other courts in their whites are just as adorable as boys should be!  Like your own dd's riding clothes I'm sure, the tennis whites for my own sweet dds are just different.  But again, crisp and clean and nothing any woman would consider wearing.  Women's tennis tops and skirts are totally different!

Yes, there are one year MBA programs. Interesting you call those "fluff", I never thought of it that way but I think you're right.

And if someone can make 6 or 7 figures with a one-year MBA, more power to them!!

Good news! You don't have to worry your pretty little head about what you would do if you had a master's degree, because you aren't in any danger of earning one.

My brother went to a different school for his two year masters degree.  Went on to do great things, Yes...

Yes, but you work for the best company on LI.  My friend (a single mom) works there too so I hear a lot.  (Check your email for her name.)

Thanks and I'll check my email. Laughing

1. If you would be unhappy with your salary, okay. I'm not unhappy with  mine.

Well then you don't strive for very much. What a waste of time to go to so much college.

2. You really don't want to get into a TVC with me about th perks of exercise classes (you seem to be insinuating that yours is "better" than others').  

Ummm...I never said that. I said that was a PERK of my job now. Not many companies, IME offer free classes on premises.

3. There are many non-financial perks of my job that I haven't even begun to talk about.  (i.e. the bottle of wine and box of truffles I received two weeks ago. yum!)

That is great. We get things all year long too but we are not supposed to be comparing.

You really should introduce yourself. Can't keep away? lol
