For anyone who has read my testimony, or been following closely my life in the blogging world; you’ll know a very special day is approaching in my life. A day that may bring back some pain, but today I am anxiously awaiting its arrival so I can celebrate. In just a few sort weeks, my husband and I will reach the one-year mark from the day he walked out of our home and declared our marriage was over.

I read a Malcom Gladwell book recently that said it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to master a field, that's about 10 years for most people. Next year my wife and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.
So, I had a question for my wife. Here's the very real text conversation between her and I:
Me: Malcom Gladwell says in his recent book that it takes 10,000 hours to master something, that's roughly 10 years, since we've almost been married 10 years, does that mean that I'm close to mastering women?
My wife: Bahahahaha (w/ lots of emoticons)
My wife's answer was my first clue that I may not have mastered women. Also, my wife delivers babies for a living so asking her a question like this while she is at work was another clue that I haven't mastered women yet.
My final clue came when I was thinking about the questions my wife asks me. She often asks me "What's the weather going to be like today?", "What time does the bank close?", and the dreaded question -- "Does this dress make me look fat?"
In the past I used to tell her to ask Siri for the weather or Google the bank hours. Then, I realized something when I asked Siri this question: "Siri, does this dress make me look fat?"
