Monday Open Thread


Good morning! Hope you all had a lovely/relaxing/fun holiday weekend. I’m still in Missouri for a couple more days visiting my parents/ swimming in the pool/ planting flowers on the deck/ eating burgers and drinking beer. As such, posting will be light this week. I have a moving guest essay coming up later today from a woman whose fiancé was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer before their wedding and given less than a year and a half to live (spoiler: it’s been eight years and he’s still alive). In the meantime, feel free to use this as an open thread to talk about your weekend or what your upcoming travel plans are or anything you might need advice about or whatever you want to discuss. For anyone who needs a column to read this morning, here are a few popular ones from years past that you may have missed the first time around:

“My Mother Had Sex With My Husband”

“Our Beautiful Neighbor Lady is Getting Too Close with My Husband”

“My Boyfriend Is Spending Christmas and NYE with His Wife and Family Instead of ME!”

“I’m Ashamed I Lost My Virginity to a Prostitute”

“My Wife Hates My Marijuana-Smoking”

“I Have a Boyfriend, but I Want a Sugar Daddy, Too”

“Should We Let Our Teen Daughter Sleep With Her Boyfriend in Our Home?”

“I Haven’t Had Sex in Four Years!”

“In a Long Distance Relationship, Who Should Be The One to Move?”

“He Wants Me To Take His Name, But I Want to Keep Mine”

“My Boyfriend is having a Baby with Another Woman”

And, of course, there’s always the forums.

    Yay. Open thread!

    Calling all people with gallbladder issues! I had what my doctor and I think was my second attack in a week of gallstones yesterday. I’m absolutely panicking because I am travelling to the USA next week for my cousin’s wedding (I am Canadian). Anybody with advice? I’m torn between trying to eat a whole bunch of fatty foods to set off another attack so I can go to the ER and get this thing figured out, or just waiting it out and hoping that I don’t get a bad attack with fever while I am away travelling. I got bloodwork done this morning, ultrasound tomorrow, but ultimately I’m cutting it tight to my departure time on Saturday.

    Any advice? Tell me your stories.

    (Don’t worry, I’m also calling my insurance provider today to make sure I am covered under my travel insurance and to disclose this issues so that my insurance is not null and void!)

    Also, it took me all day to realize that the “Monday Open Thread” was posted on a Tuesday (and I’m Canadian and didn’t even have Monday off).
