Q and A

Mar 03, 2007; OfficeWorker Asks:

Hi Stacey - Last week, I was in at a business mixer with a bunch of attorneys, and one of them said real loud in front of everyone that he'd never slept with me... which was true, but you know, the way he said it was like an obviously fake denial. It seemed really inappropriate! Do you think he was flirting?

Stacey answers:

Hi OfficeWorker,

He's a jerk. Men sometimes flirt by being mean or rude, particularly in the presence of their frat buddies, but that's no excuse. Real flirting, without malice, is not so hard to pull off. "Great shoes." Is that so difficult? No.

Next time, don't miss your chance to destroy him with a comeback! Lean in backward and toss it off over your shoulder, like Jack Nicholson: "Well, we tried to do it, but his belly got in the way." Also, any sentence that uses the phrase "too small" is likely to crush a swaggering attorney.

Hi Stacey, Do you have a certain writing schedule you follow? Are there specific times of day when you like to write? Or do you try to meet a certain word count everyday? Do you write everyday? Do you turn off the phone or sit in a coffee shop or something like that?

Stacey answers:

Hi WriterGirl. No, as it turns out, I have no fixed schedule or method. I wing it all the time. Sometimes I write a lot and sometimes I don't write at all. Frankly, I don't recommend this "system;" it's just that I don't like to make myself feel bad by setting up a schedule I can't follow. This would be any schedule, by the way.

Also, I'm very lazy and I'm addicted to the internet, even though it makes me feel empty and useless.

Hi Stacey. Today I saw this thing in my garden. I couldn't tell if it was a bug or a bird. What do you think? Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Stacey answers:

Bunny, I think that's a hummingbird moth. It's a moth that looks like a hummingbird.

I have this new out-of-town boyfriend I like a lot. He always says he loves me, but everytime I see him he acts really stressed out, tells me how much work he has to do, and he doesn't want to have sex most of the time. I don't understand what this is about! He tells me how great I am, but then he ignores me.

Stacey answers:

He's trying to make you break up with him. Boys do this all the time and so do grown men. He won't admit it and he won't stop doing it; it's like a terrible disease without a cure. However, if you really, honestly begin to feel revolted by him and ignore him altogether, he will probably start being nice to you. Once he wins you over, he'll start ignoring you again. I recommend you ditch the boy and get a puppy.
