Ask Amy: Woman’s sexuality becomes factor in breakup
What people don’t realize is that when they ask, they shift the burden onto an already nerve-wracked host.
Deliver your response quickly and cheerfully. Understand, too, that some people will drop out at the last minute, and some will bring extras, anyway.
Dear Amy: “At a Loss in Colorado” shared some biographical essays, and then got angry when her friend didn’t offer comments about her writing.
While I agreed with your response, I believe you left something out: This friend might not have read the writer’s work at all.
I know I wouldn’t.
Dear Hesitant: The risk of pressing your writing on someone is that they won’t like it – or even read it.
