Emotional affair partner wants 'normalization meetings'
Dear Wondering: You should treat this relationship as sensitively as your friend regards her various engagements. Drop the friendship, and assure her that she is right in this regard: You will definitely "get over it."
Dear Amy: Oh boy, the question from "Broken Family" really hit home. An alcoholic family member would get drunk and fire off offensive emails late at night.
I used to have a drinking problem, and also considered it a great idea to have three or four drinks and then fire off some toxic emails.
When someone gets a DUI, they will be ordered to get an ignition interlock device, requiring them to blow into a breathalyzer.
How about installing a breathalyzer interlock device on laptops?
That would have saved me, several times.
Happily, I'm now sober.

Dear Celebrating: I love your idea. Let's share the patent.
