Ask Amy: In this relationship, the ‘comfort zone’ is a Twilight Zone

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

You suggested that she should send her phone to Cleveland.

I am very offended that you seem to be disrespecting Cleveland, which is a wonderful place.

– Offended

Dear Offended: I’ve heard from several people who seem to have missed the fact that I was jokingly suggesting that this person might really throw off her fiancé by shipping her phone – somewhere.

Cleveland being the suggested destination was quite beside the point. My apologies to sensitive Clevelanders.
