Dear Candy,

I bought all the ingredients I might need. Besides what I already had I bought orange juice, honey, brown sugar and more Sunkist. Now I just need to do some experiments tomorrow to find the right formula. My question is this: I know my neighbor is very lonely, and I would be happy to have her over, so... would it be wrong to go to her tonight and invite her to come over tomorrow, but then when she shows up insist that she must be my taste tester until I get my glaze right?

Dear Asterisk, if it's particularly good, inviting your neighbour to me your taste tester should be a privilege for her, not a problem. For sake of Christian charity, you should invite her over to be your taste tester.
With love, Cadence.

Dear everyone,

Thank you for your many advices. I ended up not using orange soda, but rather orange juice.  My glaze started syrupy and by the end had become completely liquid and was sitting in a pool... but it still tasted good, so whatever, I just spooned it over the ham and it probably tasted better that way anyway :)



Now I'm full. And I have leftovers to put away. And also a kitchen full of dishes to do.  >:(

Dear Cadence,

I had someone tell me in PM that I should see my spiritual father and a psychiatrist, but I don't want to. No no no! How should I respond to them?

Dear Asterisk, if someone suggested you see your spiritual father and a psychiatrist, I'm sure it was for a good reason. At the very least, it can't hurt.
With love, Cadence.

-Orator

Don't use clichés. Don't use one of the standard formulas to open your speech. Have an introduction. A speech without an introduction is like a man without a head. Start with an anecdote that is (semi-)related to the point you want to make.  Write your speech out but don't read it in front of everyone.

Read every sentence you write out loud. If it lacks elegance rewrite it. Use short aphorisms. Work to a crescendo. Make sure the beginning and the end are the best parts. Don't use too many archaisms or neologisms. Practice your speech and make sure you find the right rhythm. Your conclusion should preferably refer back to the starting anecdote.

Dear Cadence,

Thank you for your previous advices. You are like the Aunt I never wanted to have but was forced to have because of family ties and over the course of decades I begrudgingly had to start respecting and then when you died I mourned your passing.

Anyway, so my next question: if I'm rubber, and you're glue, and everything you say bounces off of me and sticks to you... does that mean I can never receive compliments because they also will just bounce off me?

Dear Cadence,

If you have sugar cookies in the oven too long they become hard, so you should take them out while they are still semi-soft.

Sincerely,

Justin

That's about right. Though for some reason, when I bake cookies they rarely become hard. Must be extra milk in the batter.

Dear Cadence,

I find myself eating a lot of peanut butter lately. Should I justify this gluttonous indulgence by saying that I am bulking, or because I need more variety in my dietary protein sources?

Dearest Broseph,

....Cadence is sleeping.  Please stop smacking your lips so loudly!

If your pb consumption is indeed a "gluttonous indulgence" rather than a simple food you are eating more of than you usually do due to the fasting season, perhaps a quiet word of counsel from your priest is in order, as attempting to justify it is a fool's errand.

Otherwise, may you fast slowly, quietly, and with great spiritual reward for your efforts.

With love,

Your brother in iron,

Broseph

Dear Broseph, it depends on exactly why you're eating so much peanut butter. Is it because of the fasting season, and peanut butter is more appetising than lettuce and tomato sandwiches, or is it just because you like it a lot? If the latter I suggest that you reduce your intake, to avoid gluttony. After all, it's not a fast if the Jiffy's is gone in two days.
With love, Cadence.

Dear Cadence and/or Upgrade,

Later this morning I see the neurosurgeon about my back. I expect that he will send me for your typical therapy, stuff like ultrasound, "core" exercises, etc. (I suppose there's a small chance the surgery option will be explored tentatively, but probably not). Anyway, I want to lie and tell him that back massages are the only thing that has helped me in the past, and see if I can somehow get set up with those. I'm probably dreaming, but it's a nice dream. Anyway, is it a sin to lie in such a scenario?

Awaiting your answer,

Tylenprofen

EDIT--PS--I leave for my appointment in about 5 1/2 hours... the clock is ticking!

"Success" as in you made it "back"? ;D  So....what'd the dr. have to offer you?  I wouldn't recommend back surgery unless it was the only option left to you.  But then, I'm not a doctor.  Just a duck.

A duck? I thought you were an old man who lived under a rock in Maryland?  ???  But by success I meant that he checked off massages on the script he gave me. I'm going to be so let down if these don't feel [really good].

The bad news is that certain things have worsened since I first became aware of them in 2005ish (though that wasn't really unexpected). The good news is that the doc didn't sound like he was thinking seriously about any surgery at this point.

Glad to hear you got the massages!!  Lucky man!!!  I won't pry any further into your medical history here in public.  Hope you feel better!!
