The "maybe" option on Facebook actually makes sense if you use it right.

Please get out of there. I know you feel like you have a responsibility to do the best you possibly can for your kid, no matter the cost to yourself, but living in misery is not the best you can do for him.

I doubt they'll really make a big deal of it on the show. » 12/17/14 11:01am Wednesday 11:01am

You really like the book only as much as the cartoon? I mean, I grew up with that cartoon, so I have many fond feelings about it.
