I'm honestly not joking when I ask: who the fuck is Marisa Silver?
Damn. This makes me happy that she's the advice columnist here, and not me. I'd probably be like, "It sounds like you overreact to everything, and fuck if I know how to cure that," which would be entirely unhelpful, and so again; good thing someone else does this job. Does it well, too.
But even if it was "catch as catch," what the hell would that mean?
I'm pretty sure that a "caution" sign popping up in your outbox does indeed mean the piece never got sent. So try sending it again. Mind you, I know that wasn't really the thrust of the question...
My confusion about this post is this: Dunkin' Donuts already has many stores on the west coast, and has for decades. So much so that they've already gone through a boom-and-bust, particularly when the equally-overhyped Krispy Kreme finally made it here: lots of Dunkin' franchises became locally owned businesses. And now that we've also noticed that Krispy Kreme is still just a damn doughnut (except when served warm), Dunkin' Donuts is even buying advertising time out here again. Far as I know, they never entirely went away, though.
When I was in my twenties, I lived in Olympia, Washington, and most conversations seemed to revolve around astrology: your Saturn Return, when Mercury was in Retrograde, how people act when the Moon is Devoid of Course. So there was some nostalgia in there for me.
Really though; you never really grow up. You just occasionally think you are.
What a world.
"Local man thought to have been eaten by dogs," I suppose.
Dear sir: thank you for the phrase "hot neck."
