Dear Miss Lovelorn; I have enjoyed a very “close” relationship with my two long time male companions for some time. We share a basement apartment in my Mom’s house. One of my companions,“Tyrone”, likes reggae music, while my other companion,“Bruce” likes classical music. I’m sure Momsie will be very angry if they start playing the C.D.s I want to buy them for Valentine’s Day, as she only listens to Rudy Vallee and Bing Crosby music from the 30s and 40s. What should I do to ensure that neither my love life nor my free housing is placed in jeopardy? Yours truly, S.K. Cool.Georgia Boy: What kin I give to ma sister to show her how much I care? I mean we're already, well, you know... can't really say, but what gift can I give my sweetheart (sister)?
Ms Manners: Well Georgia Boy, how about mud flaps for her truck, or a tooph appointment. Maybe a pair of shoes? Don't forget the gift that keeps on giving - banjo lessons!!!
Dear Mr. Cool; You and your longtime male companions do not want to upset Momsie under any circumstances. You mentioned in your covering letter that all of you are unemployed, on public assistance and that your Mom lets you live rent free in her basement, so you don’t want to incur her wrath and lose out on a great housing deal. Perhaps you should forego the music C.D. idea and opt for something more traditional and practical. Have you given any consideration to long underwear, the kind that have the button flap on the backside. They would be ideal for those cold nights and with the rear flap, they would no doubt prove extremely practical for those nights when the three of you have romance on your minds. Hope this will be of some assistance Mr. Cool. Perhaps some of my other reading will have even better gift suggestions.
Good Luck with your problem Mr. Cool and my best to Tyrone and Bruce.
