Geekman's concept of 'helpful' differs from mine

"Geekman, I got an email from [former boyfriend] today to say he's coming here for a conference and wants to meet us for lunch."

"The evangelical fundamentalist one? Doesn't he already want us to go for coffee with him when we are in NZ?"


"I think I'm going to have to be unavailable."

"If you're 'unavailable' on both days, he'll think I made you up. Anyway, it'll be mind-numbingly boring without someone to roll my eyes at when he isn't looking."

"If you want to liven it up, you could try and convert him to atheism. Added bonus: he might change his mind about the second meeting."

"I don't want to get in a fight with him. That would be too stressful."

"So why don't you just hire a stunt double?"
