Europeans have way too much of the classics in secondary education curriculum, and maybe a little too much James Joyce. This story evoked visions of the Sirens for me. I guess for Americans, the equivalent would be Wilma screaming for Fred.


Men's brains are not designed to not listen to women's voices. When men are young and single, they hear women's voices VERY well.
