Does this town really need more townhomes?
Absolutely not! Let’s turn toward affordable housing.
Hopefully our newly elected City Council members will address
this problem and solve it. Think globally and act locally.
I’m an archeologist. I’ve been hired
to work on a controversial building project in this area, and
I have a dilemma. I am firmly against this building project,
however if I take the job I am going to make some serious bank.
Do I forego my beliefs and take the job since I desperately
need the money, or should I stick to my guns? I don’t
want to be poor forever!
Never “forgo” your beliefs. Money comes and money
goes. Once you sell your soul, there’s no turning back.
Make a difference, not a profit. You should set a new standard!
Why are things sometimes spelled with silent letters,
such as “knight?” Can’t you just take away
the “k?” Let me know.

With poetic license one can do anything. Take that “k”
away. Happy semantics!

There’s a guy at work who complains all
the time about not being able to get women to go out with
him. In trying to boost his self-esteem, I gave him a little
pep talk and complimented him on his good qualities. After
that, you guessed it, he asked me out. How do I let him
know I was just trying to be a friend without hurting his
This is quite a mess you’ve gotten yourself into.
I’m afraid there is no delicate way to break a man’s
heart. If he’s such a “great” guy, maybe
you should give him a chance. Good luck.
P.S. Fat people need love, too!
I’m a diver, too, but don’t want
to dive anymore. Doing dishes sucks. Do you have any aspirations
to not be a diver?
Dishes don’t do themselves. Fortunately, I had aspirations
to not do dishes a long time ago. Now when faced with dirty-ass
dishes, I find it somewhat therapeutic. Quit bitching.
P.S. There’s nothing worse than
a salty diver.
