The other day, as I was repeating some of the good times to be had by the lone female in my motorcycle class to my mom, I heard one of my least favorite expressions of all time come out of her mouth: "Honey, get over it. That's just the way it is." Well, as I've said for most of my life, screw that.

Although I somewhat tamely responded at the time (okay, well "tamely" for me), I actually have a number of reasons why I will never "get over it" and accept that "that's just the way it is." Since I could go on all day about this, I'm going to narrow it down to ten. Yes, I know, how original, a top ten list. But I'd wager there aren't too many exactly like this one.
