"Josh, you like a girl and you think she knows you like her. If that's the case, then the longer you wait the more she thinks you're scared. Not good.

I've worked with my share of new hires, here's my advice.

"Ask your friend what they do about food. When i go camping with friends, we each take a meal and prepare it for everyone. That way we each only have to worry about one meal but everyone eats well the while trip. If that's not the way they do…"

"I'll have to think about this some more, but one things comes to mind right off.
