Female fact of life

“I detected instantly that she didn’t like me. It’s a fact of life that a girl can tell in a flash if another girl likes her. Feely says that there is a broken telephone connection between men and women, and we can never know which of us rang off. With a boy you can never know whether he’s smitten or gagging, but with a girl you can tell in the first three seconds. Between girls there is a silent and unending flow of invisible signals, like the high-frequency wireless messages between the shore and the ships at sea, and this secret flow of dots and dashes was signaling that Mary detested me.”

—From The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, page 85

  1. Ha! Yes, definitely sounds true to me, too. My sister and I are constantly talking about why some women just inherently hate other women… and we can never come up with a consensus! :) Still, it’s a fun topic!

What do you think? I'd love to know.
