Vote NO on Initiative YES

"Vote 'NO' on Initiative Yes" - Art Boruck's sign - is applicable to more than just political jokery and the famous Seattle sign-maker's clever promotion: there's a phenomenon in our society that has us confusing 'yes' and 'no.'

I was talking with a group of single guys yesterday and they told me that they're always trying, often marking all the boxes "yes" at speed dating events, whereas the ladies are more selective.  Problem is that that's not always the case.

agotada - exhausted, squeezed dry of energy

Me sentí agotada –
la palabra justa,
como anillo al dedo,
perfecta para expresar
la senzación:

Como si 
la última gota de
energía se me fue
exprimida como el jugo
de una naranja,
cuando no da para más: me sentí agotada.
