Just Asking

Desire disaster

(In response to last week’s column) A good friend asked me, ”Is a wet seat better than no seat?” I assumed this was a rhetorical question since I’d choose neither of those options. The fact of the matter is the toilet seat should never be lifted. Your manhood isn’t determined by whether you sit or stand to do your business, so have a seat gentlemen! Just saying…

Seat situation

(In response to last week’s column) I talked to some friends who actually belong to Match.com and got their thoughts about it. All of their comments were positive. The one friend said that he hasn’t found the love of his life yet, but he’s made some great friends through it. Another friend mentioned that just meeting people that are going through the same thing as you is comforting. One of my besties is considering trying it. She is absolutely gorgeous and extremely caring and very fun, but she just can’t find the perfect match on her own. Instead of “on line dating,” she likes to call it “on line daring.” Let’s just be honest here, it’s hard to know who’s available and who’s not. Nobody wants to go to a party acting like a blood hound sniffing out the fox (no pun intended). I don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking a chance to find love. Just saying…

Cyber selection

(In response to last week’s column) I anticipated more comments on last week’s column about bullying and the reciting of The Pledge of Allegiance in schools, but got very few. I did, however, get several negative comments in regards to another column that I wrote weeks ago. They proceeded to call me names and bash the Vindicator for hiring me. To clear some things up, I mean to offend no one, and my columns are to mainly make people think and laugh a little. I am the first person to admit that I’m not an expert on advice and that’s why I ask you, the readers, for your input, hence the title, “Just Asking.” Just saying…

Bully Blues

(In response to last week’s column) Apparently there are several different meanings to the “Stuck in Ohio” logo that we see pasted on the back of several motor vehicles. To name a few, there is a production company that operates under this name, a dismount for a gymnast off the uneven bars is called “stuck,” and if you live in Ohio it is considered “Stuck in Ohio.” I still find this to be a dismal quote and a little disrespectful to your fellow Ohioans. I think it would compare to something that says, “unfortunately a parent.” It just wouldn’t sit well with a lot of people. Just saying…

“Stuck” in Ohio

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column)Most agreed with me on the courtesy call from the doctor’s office idea and some misunderstood the point I was trying to get across. I know that there are legitimate reasons for extended wait times at the doctor’s office; I’m just requesting a ...

What’s up, Doc?

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column)“Pardon my French” is a euphemism to excuse one from using slang or vulgar English. It’s odd that we say this because none of the crudeness out of our mouths has anything to do with the French language. It should probably be said. ...

Pardon my French

(In response to last week’s column) Pay attention to the little things in life. It may not seem important to you, but acknowledging that someone folded your socks and put them in your drawer can make a huge difference. The person that did it doesn’t necessarily do it for enjoyment, but being appreciated for it would make it a lot more gratifying. Thank you, two little words that make a huge difference. Try it. Just saying…

Cleaning fairy woes

(In response to last week’s column) Nobody knows! There are no logical answers to where all the missing socks go. It will forever be a mystery in life. I’ve asked everyone and researched everywhere and not one person has a good answer. I did appreciate one response, “Partying with the Tupperware lids.” Not only do I have socks that have mysteriously disappeared, I have socks that have mysteriously arrived. Answer that one. Just saying…

Sock monster

(In response to my column two weeks ago) My #1 fan couldn’t have said it better: “Vacation time goes by so fast. Enjoy ‘getting there!’ It makes your time away seem longer and is much more relaxing. Leave the rushing and deadlines at home where they belong.” I couldn’t agree more. Just saying…

Race to the vacation

(In response to last week’s column) If you see someone with a tattoo or a piercing and you’re caught staring, you should treat it the same way as if you’re looking at their sweater. If you like it then compliment them on it, If you don’t approve just smile politely and say nothing. You wouldn’t tell a stranger that you think their sweater is atrocious looking, so as the saying goes, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Just saying…
