My friend Joe B. (I won't identify him further, in case he needs to deny it later) send in the following suggestion:
"Have you ever thought of opening up an online advice column? The world would greatly benefit from your sound Yankee wisdom."
Well, Joe, I hadn't. And it remains to be seen how the world would respond. But seeing as I don't have much else to do, I may just give it a whirl.
So, if you're desperate enough to ask me for advice, I'm willing to help. Click here to drop me a line with your dilemma, question, or vexing social conundrum. I'll pick and choose the best questions--if any--along with my responses.
