ability to communicate better than men’s is well known.Not necessarily with everyone, but certainly women
to women. Their communication is often complicated
and undecipherable by men.Women can
speak volumes with a raised eyebrow, a voice tone change, shoulder shrugs and
body posture. Men often miss non-verbal communication. Men just use words.
in school the girls could all read lips.The boys would get in trouble talking is class while the girls would
carry on conversations across the classroom without making a sound.Perhaps this is why women love soap operas
where the characters all whisper; women don’t need to hear dialog, they can see

talking about Jopo-ope Hopagopy I earned to tune in, but the rest of any
conversation was "OP" to me. If the girls even thought you might be catching on they switched to "EK" which was pretty much the same as "OP" only with EK. Sometimes they would mix the two and that was ridiculous. I could not even recognize Jeko-ope Hopageky. Mrs. C would say "Yop-o-eku opareke opa jekerk!"

words with a machine, the “Enigma” machine.I plan to go to this movie with Mrs.
Cranky.I wonder if she will be able to
figure out what the Nazis were saying before the geniuses in the movie crack
