I talked to my friend Astrid today. I listened to her relationship troubles, and then offered her the story of mine.

When I was done she hesitated a moment and said, “Secretgeek, do you know what your problem is? You need to get laid.”

I agreed that this was probably the case.

“Right,” she confirmed. “Now that that’s settled – I have plans for most of the rest of February, but how about I visit you before Easter?”
