I need to go and stockpile my aged basmati rice. I eat that all the time.

Yes, I do. On weekends, I often sleep 8-9 hours. It's even better now that I have my CPAP. During the week, I'm usually running on 6-7 hours a night, and that's a little too short for me.

We have ordered a dog DNA test to figure out what kind of goofball Ranger is.

We had bought the super-high end food for Ranger, and he would go without eating for days in a row. His tummy would be growling, and I would break down and start to do mix-ins, like scrambled eggs or pieces of chicken. We've moved him back to the nice, but no where near as expensive Nature's Domain dog food from Costco. No more tummy rumblings, food strikes, or diarrhea.

I want to do a DNA test for Ranger, as he's stubborn like a hound. He reminds me of the beagle we had growing up.

We free-feed Ranger, as he never overeats. He just wanders over to his bowl when he's hungry. And like Artemis, I worry that he's getting enough to eat, as he's such a skinny little thing.

Your response is like saying that someone is going to choose to be transgender, just for funsies.

Or that men are going to identify as women, just so that they can sneak a peek in the changing rooms.

To say that you're transgender as a teen is putting a huge target on your back. They get ostracized, beat up, and often sexually assaulted. You're making a "what if" scenario that's such a huge leap of imagination from what is actually happening to high school transgender teens.

Teens are not going to flip around like what you described, and even if in some wild chance someone did try this, how the heck do you think that's going to play with a college admissions board? Those people are NOT stupid.

Thanks, Tac. I appreciate that.
