With the year coming to a close, I decided it would be a good time to post a final collection of “Dear Mike” letters and step away from the bogus advice business, before Abby comes down on me like a ton of bricks. As I’ve said, this all started in July of 2017 as a Facebook bit that I thought would be good for a chuckle or two. However, people started encouraging me (in much the same way as a crowd at the foot of a tall building shouts “Jump!” at the distressed fellow on the roof). With this installment, I’ve written a total of 38 responses. About a third of them still amuse me when I go back and read them again, which I think is a decent track record.
The last letter here was actually the first one I wrote of this batch, back in September. I knew it would be a good one to end on.
