Dear Todd Parker - (11/04/15)

I like to think that I'm a good neighbor. I'm always pleasant to people that I see when I'm out for my morning run or walking the dog or whatever else. And my neighbors in turn have always been perfectly nice to me.

However, something happened the other day that has left me at a loss with regards to how I should react. I'm not looking to cause any neighborhood tension, which means I can't just come right out and ask people about it. So I'm asking you.

I have something that has been weighing on my mind for a while now, and I was hoping to get your opinion on the subject.

Why do girls have such a problem with farting?

What is it with the kids today?

I've been working in education for the past six years, primarily at the middle and high school levels. I got the job right out of college, so I'm still young enough that I occasionally get misidentified as a student in the high school hallways. I always thought that I'd be able to maintain some level of connection with the stuff the kids are into.

I have a good friend who is getting ready to move away. He's landed a great new job that he's really excited about, but it means that he has to move to another state.

How can I be less upset by this?

Dear Todd Parker - (09/23/15)

I am a 30-year-old man who hasn't been involved with a woman in over 10 years. I haven't had a girlfriend since high school and I haven't been on a date since she broke up with me.

I tried. I really did. But women aren't interested no matter what I do. It's not like I'm some hideous troll or something I'm about 6 feet tall, weigh around 190 pounds. I'm no Clooney, but I'm not ugly either. I mean, I don't think I am. I try and hit the gym 3-4 times a week; I'm a little soft around the middle, but I'm in fair shape. I have a good job and make a good living. I've never anything but nice, but for whatever reason, they just aren't into it.

Dear Todd Parker - (09/09/15)

I like to think that I'm a considerate neighbor. I mind my own business and try to keep my property looking presentable. I don't make a lot of noise and I pick up after my dog. My attitude is basically a do-unto-others, golden rule deal.

But there's this one person (or people, I can't say for sure) that is really doing a number on things. I can forgive a lot. Live and let live and whatever. Everybody has their stuff. But when someone else's stuff starts to impact my own life, there's only so much I can take.

Dear Todd Parker - (09/02/15)

I'm a student getting ready for my last year of college. A couple of friends and I have been living in the same place for a couple of years now. It's not a great place, but it's convenient to campus and relatively cheap, so we like it.

Here's the problem this year, my roommate Steve (his name's not really Steve) decided that he wasn't going to stay in town this summer and got a job elsewhere. He left in mid-May.

Dear Todd Parker - (08/26/15)

I'm getting ready to start college in the fall. I'm going to a small school in another state and I'm really excited about getting the chance to spend time in a new place. I've gotten everything together and I'm just about ready to go.

My only issue is my girlfriend. She's a year younger than me, so she's going to still be here while I'm in school a few hundred miles away. We've been together for almost a year and it has been really great. She wants to stay together and see each other during breaks and stuff. She's even planning on applying to my school. But I'm not really sure if that's what I want to do.

Dear Todd Parker - (08/18/15)

There's something that I've been wondering about for a long time, but I can never really ask anyone about it because it's the kind of question that will probably make people think that I'm an ahole.

Why do I have to go to a child's birthday party?

(On August 2, 2015, writer Jim LaPierre posted a piece titled 'Why Todd Parker is a Genius' as part of his 'Recovery Rocks' blog on the website of the Bangor Daily News. This is Mr. Parker's response.)

Well now. That was awfully nice.
