I'm really not that busy

Finding hilarity in the mundane since 2008

One more thing

So I’m still hung up on this whole Dear Abby thing.  Seriously, click here to read the letter.

It’s got to be fake, right?  Who spends 15 years with someone (husband, brother, gay bff, whatever) and sites the good times they “frolicked through fields” and “exterminated rodents together” when describing their “bliss?”  I’ve been married 13 years and have never frolicked, killed critters, or felt that either of those activities would make our relationship more blissful.

I’ve always thought Dear Abby letters were heavily edited because they’re all written in a similar style and tone.  Now I think they’re flat out fiction.  I feel disillusioned and a little dirty.
