Welcome to the another edition of ‘Those Who Can, Do. Those Who Can’t Ask Stu.’ Each edition I do my best to answer questions about comedy or life in general. Feel free to send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to enrich your life (or make you eat it on a extreme level). Thanks for reading.
People can also ask questions about everyday things in life. I will try to answer in a non-jackassery way. No guarantees though.
I am 20 and have been with my boyfriend, “Griffin,” for five years. He recently gave me a beautiful promise ring. I would like to spend the rest of my life with him, but I think I have a problem.
I am going to become an adoption professional, and I plan on adopting one day. Griffin knows I’m pursuing this career and that I want to adopt, but I don’t think he understands how serious I am about it. We don’t plan on being married until after college, when we’ll both be 25.
How do I let him know I’m serious about this? I don’t want to wait five more years and find he’s not on the same page and that I wasted my time. When I try to discuss it, Griffin says we’re “too young to think about it.” What do I say to that? –BR
Ask him if he wants to adopt a dog. If he says yes you are good. However if you marry and him and he doesn’t want to adopt the child you at least still have that dog. Next question…
My daughter, “Annie,” is a single mother, holds a full-time job and trains for triathlons. Her son, “Cooper,” is 3. Annie has him enrolled in day care from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. every day while she’s at work. Afterward, she picks up Cooper from day care and checks him into the gym’s child care service while she works out.
I have offered to pick my grandson up from day care once a week and keep him until Annie finishes her workout. My other daughter has offered to pick him up twice a week so he can play with his cousin at her house.
Annie has become defensive. She says we’re offering because we think she’s neglecting him. Actually, I do think so. It breaks my heart that my grandson spends 12 hours a day in day care. Do you agree with me? What should I do? –KF
Welp, if you think she is a bad parent look at yourself first. You parented her. You were the example to Annie. What did you think she was good do? Why don’t you ask Cooper what he thinks. Then after he tells you realize that he is 3 years old and what he think doesn’t matter. Mind you own business Grandma! Next question…
What is your definition of a committed relationship? –SA
One that you can get out of quickly. Of course my definition is different than most. Next question…
My husband travels a lot — three to four days a week. Sometimes when he’s intoxicated and we’re having sex, he acts like he doesn’t know who I am.
I asked him once, “Are you married?” He said, “No …” Another time I asked, “Do you have a girlfriend?” and he said, “No, but you’re fine …” The next day he has no idea he said any of this.
Should I be worried? –PL
Maybe that is just his idea of sexy talk? The only thing you should be worried about is if the sex is good.
