What do I do when an alter call breaks out just as I’m getting up to use the bathroom?- Anonymous

Dear Anonymous, This is a predicament. It is also a very unusual situation. Just remember: “Want a thing long enough and you don’t.”


Dear Jin, Why is it that noses run and feet smell? – Anonymous

Dear Anonymous, This is a good question. I am very glad you are asking. “He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.” “Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.” Your nose grows, albeit slowly. You only have to be afraid of your feet standing still.
