Exactly. Where are the boys supposed to hang out in that totally frilly place? There's water. That means boats and snorkeling and bird watching and adventures. Even girls like to have adventures, even though that means boots covered in mud, waders, slickers, tools, and slimy stuff.

If the furnishings can't take a bit of cat sick and West System epoxy, they aren't worth having.
