Today on golocalpdx.com, I answer a letter from a man who’s thrilled with his wife’s major weight loss but not so thrilled with her suddenly-slutty way of dressing herself. How can he guide her to better choices without hurting her feelings? Read here:
I spent a lot of time Saturday and Sunday working on an entirely different question, only to have the letter-writer chicken out at the last minute when I gave him my analysis and advice in advance of publication (my bad – not going to do that again).
My recommendations were so spot-on that he raised the issue with his wife on Saturday night and on Sunday morning, right after I finished my final edits, he asked me not to publish the piece in case she see it and recognize herself and therefore cut off his balls or worse yet, sulk.
Which brings me to this:
Please continue to send me letters. I quite literally could not do this without your questions. However, know that I do spend a great deal of energy and hours on each and every blog. Asking me not to publish at the last minute is extremely frustrating. This is not the first time this has happened but I hope it will be the last.
An asshole advice writer would have published anyway because it was a really great blog. I’m not an asshole, but don’t make me into one by playing a coy game of whiplash with me!

Have a great week, everyone!
