Self-Made Man?

From time to time, I check out clips of the Daily Show online at the Comedy Central website. Tonight, I also strayed over to the Colbert Report clips and saw an interview with Norah Vincent about a book she released called "Self-Made Man."

Now, I haven’t read this book yet, and I don’t know if I ever will. But the premise is really interesting. Basically, she spends eighteen months as a man in order to better understand the lives and psychology of men in today’s society.

If that’s not hard, then I don’t know what is!

I feel like it’s been very challenging work. And yet, I already feel like it’s been rewarding. I’ve learned something new about myself — and I’ve been inspired to action, including a recommitment to actually following my doctor’s recommendations, and a decision to try out licorice tea, which is apparently an herbal remedy for adrenal exhaustion.
