Andrew R. Juhl, Professor of Letters:

• Dear Powerlifter Somewhere in the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center: I understand you're proud of the weight you're lifting. You want to share. But maybe ask people to come over and watch you lift those pointlessly large amounts metal instead of forcing everyone within earshot to search their peripheries for what sounds like an ongoing sexual extravaganza. Yes, we see you. Yes, you're very vascular. We'd rather focus on our squats. Friday is Butt Day.

• Dear Same Powerlifter Who Then Used the Toilet Prior to Me: Originally, I was going to insist that you learn to flush, but I think you must know how to flush as well as know it is pointless in your particular case. Somehow, you crap pure iron. Flushes have no effect. Nor fists. Nor hammers. At all. Perhaps ease up on the supplements? I'm sort of impressed, and I imagine you must feel greatly relieved. Anyways, for these and other reasons, I forgive you.

• Dear Super Duper Ridiculously Gorgeous Women: No, I will not buy you a drink. I will especially not buy you a drink if your first words to me EVER resemble, "Buy me a drink?" I do not care that you are pretty. I do not care that you have bountiful and unblemished cleavage. I do not care how slutty you're dressed. The world has given you plenty; you don't need free booze from me. Besides, too many women have gotten diamonds out of me this way already.

Andrew R. Juhl actually just wishes he were a powerlifter so women would buy HIM drinks.
