There are many topics being discussed as 2015 comes to an end and 2016 rears its head, but the common factor is definitely resolutions i.e., what did I do in 2015 that I no longer want to do in 2016? What do I want to achieve in 2016? Etc., whether as an individual or as an organization.

When I was growing up, and actually, even till now, the general impression is that women take forever to get ready and I always picture a man pacing in the living room while his wife is in front of the dressing table mirror shuffling between calling out “I’m almost ready, love” and applying her mascara and lipstick.

Raise your hands, ladies, if your man is guilty of making you late for events because he’s “getting ready”.
Now, dear men, why does it take you forever to get ready?
Are you the one that has to carefully apply make-up like a master painter at work?
Are you the one who has to go through a pile of clothes to find the outfit just right for this particular event, not the same as the one you wore for the last event (even though it’s a different crowd)?
Are you the one who has to hold her breath and fit into a waist trainer while still managing to look stunning?
Are you the one who has to get the kids ready for the event? and by that I mean, give them a bath, dress them, feed them AND manage all of that while chasing at least one of them around (hi 5 if you can identify with this)!
Are you the one who has to make sure the house looks great before you go out in case an unexpected visitor arrives just as you get back from the event?
Or are you going to use the excuse that you have decided to only get ready after your wife because you know she’s going to take her time and in doing this, you end up being the late one…so technically, it’s her fault?
