From one blond to another,


French behavior scientists conclude that interacting with BLONDES makes MEN dumber.

And I thought I was just naturally brilliant !

This fade-to-dumb theory may hold up with men in general, but seems to stop at the door step of my two sons who still roll their eyes, sigh and look at me like I have two heads when I enter into a discussion of life and how they need to be handling it.

Maybe before the next mother to son talk I need to go PLATINUM.


Lorraine, even though you're blonde and brilliant, you're obviously missing something here.

The reason your boys continually attempt to diminish your vast and expansive intelligence is the "mom factor". There's no way that at their mature and "smarter than thou" ages, they think you have anything over them. Yet...

They haven't lived long enough to get humbled by life.

As soon as they do, they'll be the first ones knocking on your door to seek your parental perspective and wisdom.

The ultimate payback for you when this happens is just to look at them, scratch your head and say, "Whaaaat? Huh??"” Shrug. Shrug.

As for your "one blonde to another"'re giving me waaay too much credit. I'm mousy brown by nature. Therefore my occasional blond ditziness is a mere illusion. I'm inwardly always smart (and brunette).

As for the men being "dummied down by blondes" you really think they're that picky? I'm pretty sure that any woman that walks by with any semblance of semi-attractiveness is enough to make most men reduce their IQ's to the double digits.
