Ugh, I read that expecting it to be funny and unfortunately, it was unfunny, misguided, and factually incorrect. :(
That was my thought after skimming it.

Read a book.  Interact with other real humans in your domicile.  Take up stamp collecting.

Your bucket list? I mean, you're doing the same thing we are.

That's different.  For reasons that do not concern you or I.   :lulz:

The worst thing about severe alcohol abuse is that it might not kill you.

It might turn you into RWHN.

RWHN doing substance abuse prevention in his spare time, ironically.

You can believe that, if you so choose.  I think he's been out of work for a while.  Just a guess, mind you.

Ha ha.  Nope.  Your federal tax dollars are still paying me a salary.

Well, I dunno. He was shopping for a ring for his girlfriend today.

A move I was considering suggesting to him to maybe wait on for a little bit since his divorce is still recent history until he called me assface (open hostility=/=hatred).

He is a human being after all and I don't want him to get too entangled too quickly if he might not be thinking through the neurochemical rush that is new love.

I'm 38 years old.  She is 39.  We didn't just fall off the turnip truck.

Well, I guess I ended up making that warning anyway. But, if he's doing that, I imagine he has disposable income to buy a rock the people suffered to get to him.

Yes I do.  Which is a good thing, engagement rings aren't cheap, especially if you want to get a good one.

Oh, and she said yes.

Debunk it then.  Seems pretty spot on to me.  And I thought it was pretty funny, and inspiring at the same time.
