Jada is one of one, a rare blend of power and delicate sensitivity. I know it wasn't easy to excavate the depths in that way. I applaud and honor you.

My husband and I went to one of his work functions on Saturday night. He was dressed in a tuxedo while I was dressed in a beautiful formal gown. He kept introducing me as his "Trophy Wife". We argued about this on the way home. He said he was proud to show me off and thought I would take the phrase "Trophy Wife" as a compliment. I do not because it makes me look like a bimbo. I'm not only attractive, but I'm smart. I think "Trophy Wife" is an outdated derogatory term. He does not. Where do you stand on this? Am I overblowing things? Is "Trophy Wife" a compliment or not?
