I'm a stay-at-home dad without any children. I don't get out much, unless you count never. I have agoraphobia. I have my food sent in and my laundry sent out. I'd like to turn things around. What do you suggest?
Grab for all the gusto you can! Meet life head on! Don't look back!
I'm terminally bashful. I can't even face myself in the mirror when I put on makeup. Consequently, I look like a clown. Please advise.
SHYBOOTS THE CLOWN
Strike up a conversation with somebody on the bus! Throw caution to the wind! Let a smile be your umbrella!
I'm a former politician and a convicted felon under house arrest. My ankle bracelet pretty much keeps me at home, so I don't see a lot of people other than my parole officer. How can I retain my schmoozing skills?
Grab life by the collar! Wake up and smell the flowers! Join a lodge!
I'm a misanthrope and I hate everybody, so I don't socialize much. But I like it this way. And by the way, screw you!
Take charge! Get out and meet people! Join Facebook!
I'm a tortured soul and I have the documentation to prove it. I'm under a suicide watch at the moment, which is why I'm writing this with a crayon. Is there hope for me?
HOWLING IN WARD 9
Put on a happy face! Get a lobotomy! Start a blog!
