Will your cello love you back?

By Donald Sensing

From American Digest:

Here's the embedded link to Alpha Game.

I have personally known never-married women who called their pets the children (one 40-plus woman called her two small dogs, "my babies"). I kid you not.

And what cello-gal doesn't realize now is that when she reaches her thirties, the men who are available are available for a reason. And the reason isn't good.

When she is 40 she will hate that cello with every fiber of her being. Here's why:
If you were thrown into a random group of white-collar workers and offered a million dollars if you could select the happiest person in that group, what kind of person would you pick? Would you select a man or a woman? Married or single? Children or no children? Well, according to a new survey released this month, your odds of winning would be increased if you skipped over the 40-something, single, female doctor or lawyer and opted for the middle-aged, married senior manager with a child at home and a wife who works part-time. In its Office Pulse surveyCaptivate Network, a media solutions company, says its uncovered "profiles of the happiest and unhappiest workers." And women don't fare so well.

[T]he unhappiest workers are:
  • Female
  • 42 years old
  • Unmarried
  • Have a household income under $100,000
  • Work in a professional position (i.e., as a doctor or a lawyer).
So, cello gal, you may love that cello. But it surely will not love you back.
