Antisocial insecurity

Kim du Toit quotes author Dan Rhodes:

To most women, a writer is a self-absorbed misfit with poor personal hygiene and lamentable earning potential — we're only a whisker above drummers in the future husband-material stakes.

I'd wonder if this might be why my son switched to guitar, but he's already married.

And I wonder if maybe for those six days without a proper shower, I might have been a real writer.

Eh, the only reason writers don't qualify as husband-material in my book is because I can't stand the competition.
