Words that sound alike but are spelled differently--sore/soar, you're/your, their/there, etc.--are HOMOPHONES, not homonyms.

Homonyms sound alike AND have the same spelling (but different meanings). For example "bark" as in what a dog does and "bark" as in the skin of a tree.

Any chance the LW meant (anal) fissures? Because that would at least make sense...

@22 -- Absolut is another good option. Produced in Sweden by a French company.

@17 Yeah, but those are usually made in China these days.

I'd totally join the boycott, only I've been drinking Absolut for years. I wonder what else is made in Russia that the common person can refuse to buy. (Boycotting Russion Oil and metals isn't really practical for most of us.)

Hey, at least he's completely straightforward about what he wants. People can take it or leave it. Much better than moving in with, for example, a closet homophobe who tells you it's cool upfront but then treats you like shit.

@9 Lambskins will keep him from knocking up the girl, but they won't protect either one of them from STDs.

I think trying a few different (non-lambskin!) condoms and seeing if any of them get him better results is really the only thing he can even attempt. Other than that, yeah, suck it up and finish outside her.

Yikes. Anyone else getting creeped out just from reading this? About half way through, I started yelling at my screen, "Leave the kid alone!!!" (Well, not really yelling. But I would have if I though the LW could hear me.)

The way he sounds like he thinks he was being *reasonable* by waiting a few hours, and the "I'll wait till tomorrow so as not to appear obsessive." *shudders* (And that's before we even get into making a 17-year-old, clueless kid SOUND HIMSELF. By himself, sitting in front of a computer, using god knows what implement. So many ways for that to go horribly, horribly wrong.)

As much trouble as the kid may be in with his mom right now, getting caught might have been the best thing that ever happened to him.

I bet if RMF still follows Dan, and just re-read his own letter, he's now sitting somewhere shaking his head and wondering how he could ever be such a moron...

Why is this tagged "cats"? Surely Dan's not suggesting it was a cat who e-mailed him? Even LOL cats have better spelling!
