This is so stupid, though. All of this mess because some stupid boy didn't take my no for an answer when he asked me for a date after several times of being told no.

He said I would pay for it and I did, and my poor Joy suffered such damage.

With love,
~Cat

The most effective way you can show him what the word "No" means is to have Carl at your side sitting with his arm around you. It will speak volumes.

It would also be a lie, since they've broken up. That part is over. Now he just has to face his punishment. Cat can take care of it without misrepresenting herself and Carl.

I think Addie has been watching a little too much "Law and Order."
Addie has never seen even one episode of "Law and Order". Addie has been a legal secretary and knows very well how the system works. It isn't just the boys who are abusing the system, but their lawyer. The lawyer is using this tactic of trying to wear Cat down. A very common tactic. And the judge sees this. Have you ever had to reschedule someone's calendar for a whole month because the defendant has chosen to take their chances with a full trial with a jury? I have worked on local traffic ticket cases to full blown federal RICO trials. I know the system well.

You were too quick to jump to judgment without knowing all the facts.

I was trying to lighten the mood because what you said seemed to upset Cat even more. The last thing she needed was a lecture on the legal system. Take it easy, Addie.

Dang, Dang, Dang!

I got a shrimp tray for us, was careful and had just a half of one and waited 30 minutes. Nothing. Had 1.5, 30 minutes, nothing. So had 3 more shrimp...no sauce, just a little lemon juice on them. Got the itchies and my lips are tingling. No breathing problems. I'm going to go take a Benedryl.

Good thing I enjoyed the last shrimp I get to eat.

Darn it, PF, that just sucks! I'm sorry.

Well, at least I know now and it didn't cost me hundreds to find out from an allergist. I'll be careful when ordering in restaurants. Poor Shrek has to eat the whole shrimp tray on his own.
