Given the avalanche of reader comments and questions I am starting to receive, I thought the most efficient way to reply would be to periodically answer several at once, so let’s get to the mailbag.
Dear Jim, What’s with your obsession with Seth Godin, Bruce Springsteen, and Anna Kendrick? You seem to keep dropping their names into your blog posts. Signed, Get Some Real Friends
Dear Get Some Real Friends, None of my real friends are as awesome as Seth, Bruce, or Anna. Plus, they never ask if they can borrow some money. Well, at least Seth or Bruce haven’t.
Dear Jim, I saw your photo ID from high school. I’m surprised you had any dates in high school. Signed, They Must Have Been Blind
Dear They Must Have Been Blind, I only used my rotary dial phone to ask out girls who had never met me before. Since it was before Facebook (thankfully), all they could judge me on was my voice. I made sure to keep the conversations short, before I started talking about bowling. Of course, once they met me, it quickly went downhill.
Dear Jim, What i do not realize is in truth how you are now not actually much more smartly-appreciated than you might be right now. You are so intelligent. You know thus considerably relating to this matter, made me in my opinion consider it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated except it’s something to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up! Signed, Chair of the University of the Munich, Department English
Dear Chair, You made me blush! And by the way, it’s got everything to do with Girl gaga!
Dear Jim, I’ve seen you mention a few times that you became a vegan several years ago. Could you tell me what was the primary reason was for doing so? Signed, Curious
Dear Curious, I thought it would increase my odds of being a guest on the Ellen Show.
