Happy Halloween!

Sage replies to Bradley's question from yesterday:
The Saran Wrap trick. It's a famous women's magazine type advice thing from the 50's, women would write in and say that their husbands just weren't interested in them anymore, and the advice columnist person would say, "Well, just wrap yourself in Saran Wrap, nothing else, and answer the door that way when he gets home." Personally, I don't see the draw...
Bradley Bradley answers:
Me either. If he's not interested in her anymore, I don't see how making herself look like leftovers would help.

"Bobbi" asks Bradley:
I think my boyfriend is cheating on me. What should I do?
Bradley Bradley answers:
When someone cheats, end the game.

"The WebWoman" asks Stone Head:
I've been working my butt off for the past two months, designing a new Web server for my company to show off at its annual meeting. I don't get to go to the meeting, though, so someone else will be taking the credit. How can I make sure that people know that it is my work?
Stone Head Stone Head answers:
I once hurled a thunderball at someone and it blew a hole in the side of a cliff. Now these cock-eyed geologists call it a "natural formation!" In my day, people like that wouldn't last two seconds without being turned into natural formations themselves.
Alphonzo Alphonzo adds:
Hoo, boy! I can relate to your problem! I take credit for my employee's work all the time!

If I were you, I'd publish an article about the project somewhere, or write my own newsletter. Whenever you run into the higher-ups on the elevator, ask them, "What do you think of my whatever-it-is? Do you have any ideas on how I can improve it?"

Pixie asks Bradley:
You are waiting for your boyfriend to kiss you. Do you kiss him first or let him make the first move?
Bradley Bradley answers:
Pixie, you're asking the wrong expert.
Kelsey Kelsey adds:
The best relationships have equality. Things flow pretty naturally, and no one is forcing anything on the other. Especially if this is the first kiss, it's best to be consentual. Wait till you're both in the mood.

If you're ready and he's not, you'll just have to accept that. All you can do is make an easy target.
