Dear Miss Pearl:

I realize this makes me sound like an asshole, but whatever, it's how I feel. So, here it goes: I don't like living here. I want to. But I don't.

Dear Miss Pearl:

We have this one couple that never shovels their sidewalk. In the handful of years we have lived there, I think I have seen them shovel the sidewalk maybe once. The snow just piles up and gets trampled down. By the end of the winter it looks like a glacier or ice skating rink or something. It is so bad that a lot of people just end up walking in the street around their stretch of sidewalk.

Dear Miss Pearl:

I'm a woman in my 30s working in an office setting. Recently, I was partnered with an older guy (maybe in his 50s) to work on a short-term project. He often referred to me as "hon" and occasionally "sweetheart" when he wanted to change it up a little. And when said it he wasn't being condescending or anything like that. He's a nice man, a bit odd, perhaps a bit clueless.

I didn't really mind that much, given his personality and, ummm, oddness.

Dear Miss Pearl:

We live in Albany. We have a cute (small) house on a nice street. And I'll always have good memories of starting our family here. But we want to have another baby. So we need the space. And our child will be starting school in a few years. And... we're thinking about moving out of Albany.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
