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 Men In March

Happy National Women’s Month! As controversial as this might sound, I think we need to prioritize men this month. I mean, it’s the least we could do. I feel like men don’t get the recognition they deserve, so I decided to dedicate this Ode to them. Honestly, they are so selfless that you don’t even […]

The Importance of Human Respect

There are many things in life that I deem as difficult, even impossible. Lifting a car? No way. Passing a logical reasoning course? Yeah, right. Everyone has their own opinions on what they deem as difficult to achieve, however, I find it particularly intriguing that some people consider something I find very easy to be […]
