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.

God Called, and He Told Us to Chill

I’ve never been great at small talk, but I’m going to give it a try: Some weather we’ve been having, huh? First, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake shook New England last Friday morning. Then on Monday, a total solar eclipse passed over the region, the last we’ll see (unless you forgot your eclipse glasses—protect your retinas!) […]

Ode to the Campus Bikers

A few days ago I sat with my friends in University Park, waiting for the solar eclipse to (somewhat) knock my socks off, when all of a sudden there they were. We all know them. That group of middle school kids that ride around campus on their bikes, acting all tough with their wheelies.  I […]
