Dear Daily Freier: Question Time!

Dear Daily Freier Advice ColumnOnce again, the Dear Daily Freier advice column answers questions that you forgot to ask because the winter rains just started and the temperature has plunged to an unearthly 60 Degrees Fahrenheit (Metric Conversion: 4 hectares) forcing you to dress like an extra in an Al Gore Climate movie. So without further ado, here are your amazing inquiries!

Dear Daily Freier: Hi! I love seeing the men at the pétanque courts on Rothschild Boulevard and really want to learn how to play too! The only thing is, I’m under 60 years old, I’m not French, and I’m a woman. Do you think I can participate?

Dear Daily Freier: Hi! I live in a small country in the Eastern Mediterranean region and I am quite smart and accomplished (I was even once a secret agent! Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!) The problem is, the people (read: “Men”) who run this country don’t respect how smart I am and don’t realize how much better things would be if I were in charge. I have even tried out different political parties but they are all too full of themselves to realize how amazing I would be as their leader. Any advice?
