Hi there, guys and dolls! Say, it’s already Friday, and you know what that means – time for some not so great advice that you really don’t need. Let’s see what are willing victims, er, participants are troubled about today.
Dear Barbara Jean,
My boyfriend (whom love very much) has a great personality but lacks a little in strong stature. In fact, I don’t think he weighs even 100 pounds, sopping wet. Barbara Jean, I’m a mid-western farm girl with a hearty appetite and with big bones to boot. I need my man to muscle up! I saw this ad in a magazine lying around and wonder if it works. How do I get my little guy to see this and think it is his own great idea?

Don’t we all want our men to think they come up with their own bright ideas? Sigh… Why don’t you find a copy of one of his favorite magazines (you know, like Scientific American or something egg-headed like that) and carefully glue the ad in the middle of it. Give him a day or two to see if he comes across it and takes action on his own. If he doesn’t, roll up the magazine, making sure that the ad is visible, whap him over the head with it (playfully, of course), and tell him it’s time for him to become a manly man.
Wishing you lotsa luck, Barbara Jean
I am at a loss, my boyfriend Chuckie wants to take me on a tropical holiday to Miami, but my other boyfriend Derek wants to take me skiing in Colorado. I really like both of them and can’t decide who I should go with and where. Please advise.

Oh, if we could all have your problems! I say do both. Go for a week or two smooching on the slopes and then snuggling in the sand.
Wishing I had your life, Barbara Jean
Keep your letters coming! I love to help or hinder any way I can.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more posts. And don’t forget to give my Poppy Cove Mysteries a try if you haven’t already.
Toodles, Barbara Jean
