    Hi there

    earlier this year you wrote a hilarious piece in Cape Times where a lady wrote in using terrible spelling and grammar, about a love triangle she was involved in. she asked for advice, and you wrote back that she should give up love, and learn how to spell first. learn to follow the rules first, then look for satisfaction…

    is it on your blog, where could i see the piece? i refer to it often, and would love a link!
    thank you for your most entertaining writing!
