“Dear Ms. Love n Happness,” Like Dear Abby off her meds.
Posted on November 22nd, 2011
Dear Readers (all two of you),
You lucky dog! You have experienced me bending your ear about my wack-a-do problems. Now it’s your turn.
I thought it would be fun to experiment with a “Dear Ms. Love n Happiness” feature on my blog. Like this one: http://mslovenhappiness.com/2011/11/09/chicken-soup-for-the-soul-or-dear-ms-love-n-happiness/ and I could really, really use your help.
Could you PRETTY, PRETTY, PRETTY please take a moment out of your crazy-ass life to do two things:
1) Jot down a question about life and fire it off to me. @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t worry! You and anyone you speak about will remain completely incognito, unless of course you are glutton for glory.
Fear not! If you don’t have the time to craft a cutesy question, it could be a simple prompt. Think Mike Myers and Coffee Talk: ”I’ve been dating this guy for a few months and the first time I spent the night at his house he came to bed in pajamas and a breath right strip. WTF? This was an absolute deal breaker and now I won’t return his calls. Am I shallow? ” I can take it from there. Of course if you fill inspired WRITE ON!
My areas of (supposed) expertise: Single parenting, parenting, dating, blending families, relationships, crazy ex’s, really, really ridiculously dysfunctional families, antics, rants, fun and trying your damnedest to live a good life. And! Powered by the world-wide web and a library card, I will even do research if I don’t have the answer. I. Am. Not. Scared.
And, while I may be a snarky puss the majority of the time, I am capable of being rather kind: http://mslovenhappiness.com/2011/10/25/the-amish-instinct/ and kinda deep. Kinda. See: http://mslovenhappiness.com/2011/11/04/an-open-letter-to-my-father-the-meth-addict/
2) Recruit a friend to do the same! Let’s face it, I am usually always stuck at a desk or chasing a toddler so getting my writing out beyond my circle has been tough. Please, let your friends, colleges and family members critic my perspective and crappy grammar! The more the merrier.
You are achingly beautiful and wise.
