Dear Kevin,

Due to all the snow we’ve had recently, me and my friends have been throwing a lot of snowballs at each other. It started off fun but sometimes they won’t stop even after I tell them to. Some of the snowballs have ice in them and they really hurt. What should I do?



Dear NoMoreSnow, 

Your situation is not an uncommon one, as I imagine there are numerous snowball fights going on as we speak. And it can be mean or hurtful when people won’t stop throwing them at you.

Actually, this reminds me of a story. One time I was walking home from a friend’s house, and a guy in a passing car threw an apple out of the window and it nearly hit me. I didn’t take it as a sign of disrespect though. I took it more as a sign that I should start eating healthier. Because when apples start falling from the sky, that’s a surefire sign from God to put down the chips… maybe go to the gym once or twice.

Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh right, the snowball thing…

I don’t know, maybe wear a helmet?

Thanks for your question NoMoreSnow! And remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Ode to Cats

I think I’ve created a name for myself among my friends. A reputation. A concept that comes up on my friends’ For You pages that they always share when they see it. I am a cat lady. No, don’t worry, I don’t have 15 cats (yet), but I do have one perfect angel child named […]

As I am sure you all can tell, writing is my thing. I’m majoring in public relations and minoring in writing studies, a pretty typical path for people interested in writing. Despite the track I’m on for my future career, I think it’s time I start re-evaluating my plans and take a deep dive into […]
