Sexism, Anyone?

I used to be a feminist.
I mean, who wouldn’t like women? 😉
(Unless, O’course they’ve changed the meaning of feminism in the recent years :D)

It can happen, you know?!
I was perusing through Barron’s wordlists, as usual.

And an ordinary day just turned a little suckier as I encountered this –
I quote from Barron’s 23:2 [yeah, That’s wordlist 23, page 2 :P]

Sometimes, I get a little too paranoid.
Some other times, a little more excited than I normally should.

Maybe I am getting into a spiritual trance without my knowledge. 😀

I so surmised I’ll complete the ordeal and Shilly being the most communicative in our group (yes, that’s my euphemism for chatter-box :P) offered to narrate me a story.
I nod-nod-nodded.

Such grave a mistake!
In about a short while after that, all of my seven horcruxes were screeching in pain realizing, albeit a little too late, that they walked right into an Abilene paradox.
