I'm wondering about how
smart men truly are. I read a book this weekend to not give a flying fart about what they think. Do you think this is true?
Or are we short changing the opposite sex?
Dear Beach Goddess:
Men are "smart" in the
sense that even dumb animals find shelter in the winter and can scrape hard ground for food if they have to. The thing to
always remember is that men are instinctual; if they need food, they do drive thru. If they need beer, they buy a case. If
they need sex, well, it's you or their hand. Just remember that if they need something, and you can provide it easier and
faster than they can do it themselves, then you might be able to leverage that in your favor.
From: Resentful Roommate
I'm tired of getting caught
in the middle of my 40 year old male roommate's on-and-off relationship with his 20 year old aspiring "porn star" girlfriend.
I've made it quite clear I'm uninterested in being his therapist AND that I resent being triangled into their little "dramas"
yet the behavior ensues. Given that moving out is not an option at this time and I don't want to turn into a TOTAL bee-atch.
What should I do?
Perhaps the next time
this person starts one of his little "plays" you can select from one of the following options:
1. "Why don't you ask
2. Hand him the Yellow
Pages already open to the "Psychiatric Counselors" page.
3. "I just pay rent here.
If you want my opinion, you'll have to lower my rent."
4. Yell "OW! OW! My head!
OW!" and run from the room.

I have approximately 3
days 5 hours and 42 minutes left of sanity....I'm traveling back East to the land of the trolls for the holidays. Pray for
me O Diva of Mirth...
Dear Smarty Pants- I'll
pray for you, but you should know that fish and family start to smell after three days. Put a clothespin on your nose and
try to remember that we do these things once a year to remind ourselves of why we moved 1500 miles away! Please write again!
