On Ask Polly: Should I Have This Baby?

@Ren_li I think this might might have a lot to do with the mother's attitude about the father not being around. Maybe? Like if mom's attitude is, we've got this, we're a complete family, there is no dad, then it's not a big deal, but if mom is trying to get dad to step up, or wishing dad was around more, then the kid will feel the loss in a different way...

But I could be full of shit. Who knows.

@pointreyes, I hope you are able to be at peace with whatever decision you make.

On The Taco Bell Breakfast Is American Freedom And Pride In Its Best And Most Primal Expression

Is that a hashbrown patty covered in cheesy eggs wrapped in a tortilla? I'm gonna need one of those. And a waffle taco.

On Ask Polly: Should I Play It Cool—Or Ask Him For More And Be "That Girl"?

The best thing anyone's ever done for me is once a friend-with-benefits told me that I am not actually low maintenance at all. It was quite a revelation. it's okay to have needs, and best if you can express them.

On It's Friday, Drink Rye

Bulleit rye is very good and not at all expensive. I think it goes best with ginger ale.

last Friday, a friend brought over some homemade ginger beer with just a hint of spicy peppers, which was mixed with some Bulleit rye, and it was delightful.
