Anand: How are you doing, mommy?
M: Okay. A little tired, and a little worried about the election tomorrow.
A: I hope you win.
M: I hope so too, but ‘may the best man win!’
A: Man??
M: Or woman…
A: I don’t know why you said man when you’re a woman.
M: Well, it’s a saying, back from when mostly men did this kind of thing because some people didn’t think women should.
A: I’m guessing that was a long time ago, back when women had boundaries on what they could do. People used to think that girls had to be feminine and boys had to be fighters. I’m pretty sure there was a time when people thought that way. Now some girls just like to break iron.

All right then. Time to break some iron.
