Advice for those on the verge


Dear Minerva,

Is there a limit to how many amazing grilled cheese sandwiches I should ask my partner to make in a week?

Dear Cheddarly Enamored,

Grilled cheese sandwiches are a delicious bit of alright if I do say so myself, though a distant memory since I went low-carb. Is there a limit? No, I don't think so. As long as your diet allows for it and your partner doesn't mind making them, you should be fine to ask away. What I would suggest, though, is make sure you are doing things your partner appreciates or loves in return. I have loved a man enough to make him a grilled cheese sandwich for every single meal of every single day (see carrottop.com), but it takes a strong love to join bread and cheese day in and day out. Unless you are prepared to start making them yourself, I would suggest keeping the pan of love well-greased with copious praise and trinkets of your affection. The next time you Netflix and Grill, be sure you are appreciating your partner appropriately. As long as you do, your heaven of cheesy goodness should prosper. Fail to offer reciprocity for your partner's labor of love for you, and you will find yourself in a sticky situation and will soon be biting into the fried personification of their bitterness and discontentment.
