Wolfe’s Woofer: Texas Breakfast
“Dennis Wolfe, come up here and sit with me!” It was early in the morning as I was walking down the beach in front of Fido’s when I heard the unmistakable Texas drawl of Casey Moore calling to me from the deck. “Casey Moore, you rascal,” I said. “I heard you were back in town. It’s good to see you.” We swapped lies for a while and I caught up on Casey’s adventures in Thailand. “I knew you would be coming back to Belize,” I told him. “Charlie was keeping your banjo for you so I figured you would have to come back for it.”
Doctor Love: Broken
Dear Doctor Love, I broke up with my boyfriend of six years and I feel so depressed and lonely. I’m relieved the relationship is over. It was an emotional rollercoaster and I was miserable much of the time. When we disagreed, I was the one who always had to change my moral and emotional boundaries in order to keep peace. But foolishly, I miss him. We’ve broken up in the past but I always went back. How can I do what I know is best for me and stay away from him this time? /s/Broken
