On Ask Polly: My Parents Don't Want Me To Marry This Short Man And I'm Freaking Out!

Is it a coincidence that your feelings for him are flagging just as your parents have begun to accept him? Perhaps one of the things you enjoyed most about him was his ability to elicit disapproval-by-proxy from your judgmental, overbearing parents. At some point, everyone has to declare their independence from their parents' values. Maybe he was your way of doing that without necessarily being your lifelong partner.

On Canada's War On Doorknobs

Yep, it's gone again.

It was a b/w animated gif of a dim hallway in which a kitty jumps up and uses a lever--not a doorknob--to open a door and escape into a bright unknown.

Charming, mildly alarming--no one wants a kitty to get out and into peril--and relevant, I thought.

On Canada's War On Doorknobs

Wha happened?

The gif disappears unless this comment is here. Sometimes. Sometimes the gif disappears anyway. And then comes back.

I bet it disappears again once the edit window is closed.
