"I'm also in the Chicago area. Anything linen or light weight cotton works for summer as "dressy-casual". Generally speaking, summer colors are lighter and/or brighter but it's not critical if that's not your style."
"Impatience is a dangerous thing. I've gone through this three times, and it took the third time to finally figure things out. I could drop weight quick, but it would always come back. I finally figured out what works for my body, and keeps me…"
"I'm having a difficult time understanding how one's shoes fall apart within a week so am unable to offer advice. I had a friend in high school who dragged his heels when he walked. It was so obvious that it was his fault his heels wore…"

I've been shaving (with razor) my head for about 12 to 15 years. It's just part of who I am now. I get complements on occasion, directly or not. Often from short woman who clearly can't see the top/top-back of my head. I…"
"I fell in love recently, and although I haven't had sex with this woman, I've lost almost all interest in porn. So......try falling in love? :)

"Never listen to a woman in this situation. She's not the one that has to potentially deal with busted teeth, or a little time in a cell for assault and battery. If she wants to make a statement let her, then at least you'll be empty…"

I find it hard to believe that today's…"
"It's a nice tradition between you and your father, and that's a great looking knife. Personally speaking, I don't carry anything. I do my best to avoid/get away rather than have someone turn my weapon against me. That's not a…"

"Posting a Preacher's comment as evidence against evolution? Genius! It's not like he's financially invested in people throwing money his way if they'd rather believe in fairies and unicorns!
Though, you can't expect much…"
"Man, if you haven't done anything go and talk to your sister and tell her what she is doing is wrong.
She hasn't acused you, yet is treating you like you have been accused? Well, that's some horrid villification."
